I remember Uncle Jack always smiling at family holiday gatherings. He had a quick wit and great sense of humor. He leaves behind a wonderful legacy through his family and will be greatly missed...May he rest in peace. We pray that God will provide comfort to the family as you grieve Jack's passing. With Love, Ed Marchitti and family (Pam, John, & Paul)
