Jack joined the Thomas Corners Fire Department in 1973 and was a proud lifetime member. He served in many capacities at the fire department such as Chief, President, Trustee, Vice President and Chairman of many of the committees. Jack played the drums at all the Firehouse events including parades. Jack was an avid gardener, both vegetable and floral and was known for his garlic and homemade pickles. He also enjoyed making homemade wine and was an avid Boston Red Sox fan. One could often find Jack at his home away from home, TJ’s Flightline Pub enjoying a nice meal and a B&B. Above all, Jack cherished the time he was able to spend with his family. He was a dedicated father and grandfather, and great grandfather. He made sure to be at all their sporting and music events and even coached his daughter’s women’s softball team. Jack will be remembered for his charismatic charm and was a friend to many.
