He served in the WV Air National Guard and the US Air Force during the Korean Conflict and was sent to England, where he met the Love of His Life, Yvonne. They were married in 1953. Returning to the USA, they raised three boys, Gene, Bill and Sean. Jack worked with Pan American at Cape Kennedy and Trinity Towers as an Air Conditioning Tech. Jack retired in 1996 and enjoyed time with his grandchildren, Courtney, Nina, Lesa and great-grandchildren, Nathan, Luke, Hunter, Troy and his "daughters" Cindy, Jennifer, Connie and Monette.
