  1. Gail and family:
    John was the type of personality who every one liked. He was friendly, and extremely fun to be around. Life gets in the way of friendship but I never forgot you and your family. I am so happy I got to know John and Gail.

  2. Jack hired me to work at Beneficial Finance in the Colonial Park Office when I as pretty much right out of high school. He was a very nice man/boss. I remember Jack as kind, and having a great sense of humor and laugh! It was a lot of fun working for him. I remember him talking a lot about his family and enjoyed meeting them when his wife Gail would bring them into the office. I specifically remember him calling his son Hondo.
    Funny story: On my 21st birthday I went out with friends to Your Place to celebrate and watch the World Series. I kept telling Jack that the Phillies would win. So when the final out happened I called him because I was quite happy about the win, but, I was also totally wasted! I remember the next day at work he just would laugh at me all day long because I had the worst hangover and was also still somewhat drunk. But, being a good boss and kind and understanding, he didn’t mind.
    My sincere sympathies to Gail, Keri and John. May Jack rest comfortably in the arms of his heavenly father.

  3. My big brother! Jack was a very kind person and loved, loved family and family gatherings. He was so much fun at gatherings. Just loved him so much and will miss him until we meet again.

  4. We will miss you John! Your laugh your smile would light up a room!
    Always in our hearts.
