I used to deliver newspapers to Jack's house when he lived on Highview Parkway. I was interested in ham radio and so Jack would invite me in taught me a bit about Morse Code and the electronics of the day (pre-transistor days).

He was a nice guy and a real gentleman.

Jean & Family,
I am sorry to hear of the loss of Jack. It is so hard to lose a loved one, especially during the holiday season. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Sue
