By fluke, I came across Jack's obit while searching Pipers in the Dayton Ohio area. I met Jack some 25 years back while I started with the Antioch Shriners Pipe Band, and again at a 9/11 Remembrance I was piping. Jack took me back to their apartment in Springfield, and we had a great couple hours talking all things piping. He let me play his prized possession, his full mounted pipes, which were to this day probably the most beautifully balanced set I've touched.
I really enjoyed, and will never forget that afternoon with my fellow Piper, and Masonic Brother Jack.
