  1. My dearest Jack, I have many memories of the times we had together growing up. There’s a special place in my heart always reserved for you. Thankful to have had you in my life to love. Rest in Peace my dear cousin… until we meet again. Janis

  2. Jack as a youngster, growing up in the car business in the 1970s you were known as the man! You gave me a lot of great insight to the automobile business, which I will always cherish. You gave me even more with your son, Jack, when you asked me to help him learn the wholesale business. He and I became the best friends and he moved to Florida to be around me and my family also. My girls loved him to death. He was like their second father. You and he meant more to me and my family then you will never know. But Jackie passed. It was such a blow. He loved and respected you always!
    You will now be together forever and later I will join you and we will celebrate together!
    I God be with you always!

  3. Jack, Thanks for the great memories of the cars and the boats! All the laughs, fun and love shall be with me always. Until we meet again.. Love Harry
