    A real man and a good man. He was my barber from when I was a child until my 50s. Truly a caring person with a great sense of humor and quick with an encouraging word. There was a time I was between jobs and had come to get my hair cut for an upcoming interview – he wouldn’t let me pay. Typical Jack. My heartfelt sympathies to his family.

    Phyllis and family, My sincere sympathy and condolences at the loss of such a great guy. In 1996 my lifelong barber in College Hill retired. The next month on a Saturday in September my daughter was beginning her cheerleading career as a freshman cheerleader at LaSalle. I had to work that day and had to miss that game. On my way home I stopped at Valleydale for the first time. When I got home I told my wife, WOW, I got a great haircut learned things I didn’t know about guns and horses and LaSalle freshman team won the game. I’ve looked forward to seeing Jack for the next 24 years after that.. He’ll be missed by many

Leave a Condolence
