  1. I wish to express my deepest sympathy to Vi and all of the family. You and Jack are in my prayers. Love Always, Joanne

  2. My deepest sympathies goes out to all of Jack’s family. He was one of the nicest, warmest and most unselfish men I have ever met. He will be missed both on and off the field. Love Krissy MacLean

  3. My deepest sympathies to Jack’s family and friends. Jack was such a wonderful, warm, and friendly person. He was my Connecticut father, since my family lived in Pennsylvania. He loved the Brakettes and had been very patient in waiting to create the Brakette museum. He will always hold a special place in my heart and mind. He was truly a great man. He will be missed by many people, actually by anyone who has ever met him. Love you, .Uncle. Jack.

  4. My most sincere sympathy to the members of John’s family. Our friendship goes way back to the grammar school days and on throughout high school. My West Haven haunt was Atwater Street and so I walked to Painters Park almost every evening and always was aware of your home on Jones Hill Rd.

  5. My warmest thoughts and prayers go out to all of Jack’s loved ones. He was one of the kindest, most giving individuals I have ever met. Jack will always be an integral part of The Brakettes and will live on in the creation of the museum that meant so very much to him. You will ALWAYS be with me in spirit, both on and off the field. Love you forever .Classy Guy..
