He found enjoyment in his shared adventures with his boys, Pat and Tim, and his grandchildren, whether it be through scouting, coaching their sports teams or just watching them grow.

He also served as a member of the Erie County Sheriff’s Office Dive Team.Whether he was working on a crossword or cheering on his kids and grandkids, Jack always had a smile on his face and was happy to see you.
