Jack was an avid fisherman and outdoorsman. He enjoyed going to Wollaston Lake Lodge in Canada to hunt big northern pike with his son and grandson. He loved bass & walleye fishing with his friends in MN and AZ.
Jack loved gospel music and took up playing the banjo after he retired. His father took up the guitar and they played bluegrass gospel music at senior communities throughout AZ.
