Jack played baseball in his twenties. He was a pitcher for his Town Team in Iowa. Later, when he moved to Omaha, he played slow pitch softball in a Church League also a City League, still being the pitcher. After he retired from playing, he was umpire for many years. One of Jack’s most beloved memories was that of coaching his sons in their Little League baseball teams. He coached for many years! He was active in his Church and chaired many projects. Many will remember him as the “fun” Bingo caller at St. Richard’s.
