Jack was a fun-loving guy with quirky sense of adventure. He lived much of his life in the Buffalo area working as a dentist with a friend from school. His career eventually led him to the love of his life, Jean. Jack and Jean went to Las Vegas and Florida every year but what they enjoyed the most was each other’s company. The other loves of Jack’s life include ’57, ’55, and ’56 T-Birds (in that order), Honda Motorcycles, trains, and his dear friend and furry companion, Nathan.
Jack was incredibly social and independent up through his early 80’s. He could put a smile on the face of anyone he met, especially if they were in his dental chair. His humor was matched only by his humility. He often told people not to refer to him as “Doctor” because he did not feel the need to express his distinction. When he wasn’t hanging out with his friends at the senior center he could often be found on the slots at the casino. Rumor has it, he went twice a day but, not to worry, he set his limit and played within it.
