So Sorry to hear of your loss.
I have many fond memories of Jack; going back 50 years ago, chatting with him on the steps of the family house on Bonaventure (the hangout in the am before school) and then right on up through the years. Jack and Dad were great buddies so I would often have an opportunity to chat or “debate current issues” with Jack when our paths would cross.
I Always enjoyed his company. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Peter Sorry for your loss our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family ,he was a great man,
