Jack “Jackie/Big Jack” to his family and friends or “The Dude” as his daughter, Shannon, lovingly referred to him, was born on August 21,1956 in Youngstown, Ohio. He was a lifelong Youngstown resident, graduated in 1976 from Chaney Highschool and a long-time employee of Astro Shapes in Struthers, Ohio.
Jack loved fishing and his favorite spot was Matachewan, Canada, which he frequented several times with friends and family. He was into drag racing, muscle cars especially his favorite, the Chevelle and collecting rare coins. Rarely seen without his signature baseball cap, or impressive mustache, he also enjoyed collecting baseball cards.
Jack was the very definition of a chill, laid-back dude. His sparkling kind eyes always twinkled with a hint of mischief when he smiled. He enjoyed good jokes and was happiest just hanging out with his children, family and friends, especially in the outdoors. He loved reminiscing about his teenage hijinks and adventures, especially with his lifelong best friend, John Mckimmy.
