Jack was a veteran of the US Army, retired from the Michigan City Fire Dept after 27 years and then worked for the US Postal service in Michigan City as a maintenance engineer.  He was a member of St. Stanislaus Catholic Church, Michigan City, Indiana and the American Legion Skwiat Post 451.  He was an avid beer connoisseur, avid  runner but due to knee issues had to switch to walking.  He enjoyed all sports, especially baseball with the Chicago White Sox being his favorite team.  Jack liked to work outside, except in the snow, and really loved the beach!  That man had a permanent tan.  He could be a crabby one but was a great guy and was a father figure to more than just his own children.
