So sorry to hear this news. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your daughter. I hadn't seen my brother in such a long time but he will forever be in my . The most special memory I have is from when I was thirteen and he was twenty six. My big brother took me to an Osmond concert at Madison Square Garden. I promised I wouldn't scream but being thirteen and seeing Donnie Osmond well I guess I didn't keep that promise! Rest in peace now big brother. I love you and miss you! Your baby sister, Laurie.

Jack was a good friend, he was the guy always in the background never wanting recognition for what he did. The hours he spent at the Bergenfield PAL are too numerus to count and his contributions where a large part of what kept the PAL going. I will always remember him fondly and be grateful for the time I was able to spend in his company.
Jack you will be missed more that you could know.

Thinking back to when we were young and the fun we had at your pizza tasting parties in Montvale. And when we went to Mrs Bailey's cabin in Pennsylvania. Most of all knowing how happy you made Lucille. I remember when Victoria was born you had the biggest smile your heart was full of love. You were a WONDERFUL man. Love Jean David
