    Marge, Barb, Ann and family. Saying sorry for your loss seems so inadequate. He was a great man, a night light in the Greece community and a wonderful example of how we all should live our lives. You are all in our prayers.

    Barb, Tim, David and Amy. Please accept our deepest and most sincere sympathy upon learning of Jack’s death. Our prayers and thoughts are with your entire family. The minute I saw his smiling picture……….I smiled too. That is how I remember him–smiling. At times like this, living in a different State is so dificult. Please give our love, thoughts and prayers to your Mom, Barb. She, too, is being thought of in a very special way. What a wonderful woman. Love to you all. Mary Theresa and David

    Jack was the first neighbor to greet us when we moved in on Shady Shores. He never failed to turn on their boat house spotlight when we came in by boat at night. His helpfulness and kindness are missed by all of us across the bay. It has been a joy watching his family grow over the last 20 years. Thanks Jack, I will keep my ‘Lollipop Tree’ trimmed for you.

    We are all saddened by the loss of our dear Jack as he meant so much to so many people. He will live on in our hearts, but I am going to miss my phone chats with him the most!! Sending prayers and good thoughts along with a hug to the family.

    Dear Marge and family, Jack’s passing brings sadness to the many firefighters throughout Monroe County who knew and admired him. His long career in FIRE and EMS service, his dedication to FASNY and the many state and local fire organizations he belonged to leaves a legacy that will last forever. A grateful fire department thanks him for his many years of dedicated service and friendship. May our Eternal Chief and all the angels and saints welcome Jack into his new Eternal Home.

    What a wonderful live to celebrate! My prayers and hugs go out to all of the family. I met Jack and Marge only a few times through their daughter, Barb and the Shoniker family. They left a very good impression and happy memory. God less you all…hold tight to the memories and each other.

    Dear Marge and family, Just heard about Jack and his passing. Remember so many good times with him in the Fire Dept. He was a blessing to so many. May God give you the strength, during this time and in the coming months. One of my favorite verses is Psalm 116:15.
