Jack worked at Central Soya for a multitude of years until his retirement and continued to work beyond retirement at Precision Packaging. Jack also served in the United States Air Force for many years. He was a man who prided himself in his exceptional work ethics and enjoyed staying busy. Even outside of his career, Jack always found something to work on. He frequently constructed new projects in his free time and had a special gift when it came to building. Jack thoroughly enjoyed being outdoors and that’s where you could find him on most days. He had a fascination with frogs and had many collectibles that friends and family gifted to him over the years. Jack was also an avid fan of the Cincinnati Bengals and the Cincinnati Reds. He never met a stranger and always extended a hand to help those in need. Jack was truly a character and had a joke for anything and everything. His sense of humor was one-of-a-kind and he has left us with countless memories that we will cherish for years and years to come. Jack was loved by many and will forever be missed by all.
