 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
After serving 26 years in the Navy, Jack retired with his wife Joan to beautiful Lake George, NY.  They both agreed, this was the most beautiful place in the world and throughly enjoyed living in the Adirondacks. Jack and Joan became avid volunteers and major contibuters to the preservation of the Adirondack Park, with a keen interest in preserving the water quality of Lake George, and keeping much of the land around the lake as "Forever Wild".  In later years they spent the winters in Amelia Island, FL enjoying many activities with their friends, not to mention golf. Jack and Joan embraced life with a wonderful spirit of adventure and enthusiasm.  They are greatly missed by their children, grandchildren and the many friends they had throughout the world.
