He was an Eagle Scout, served in the National Guard, and worked at Taylor Plumbing and Electric in California, MD for over 40 years. Before retiring to SC, Jack was a member of Mt. Zion United Methodist Church and participated in many of their ministries.
During his life, Jack enjoyed camping with his family and friends, traveling the country to attend NASCAR races, tinkering in the garage, and building anything his wife asked him to make. He regretted not patenting any of his inventions. He truly was a Jack of all trades.
