Jack proudly served our country in the United Sates Navy during World War II. Following his honorable discharge, Jack attended Bryant and Stratton College. He would become a skilled terminal manager for many trucking companies in MA, and NJ. He went on to work in sales for Fenwal Corp in MA and was finally able to retire. Upon Jack’s relocation to Myrtle Beach, he became instrumental in starting the Honor Flight out of MB for the WWII Vets to see their memorial in DC and proudly started the Veteran’s March. In his free time, Jack still relished being active in his community and was a lifetime member of the SSB Moose Lodge, DAV, VFW, American Legion, and Elks Lodge. Always one to stay active, Jack appreciated time spent playing bridge with partner, Phil Johnson and was a member of the Pawleys Island Bridge Club; and found peace on the golf course.
