Jack lived in Sonoma for many years and was known as one of the best back-hoe operators in the area.
Graveside services were held Aug. 22, 2012 in Sonoma. However, some of Jack’s family did not receive word of his death or funeral until it was too late to attend, especially family from New England.

Friends of Jack are very welcome to attend.
