So sorry to hear of Jack’s passing and deepest sympathy to his family. I worked with Jack for many years at Westinghouse E. Pittsburgh and the nuclear division in Monroeville. He was a great colleague. I spoke with Jack in December before leaving for Florida for the winter and he was at peace with his condition. May in Rest In Peace.

So sorry to hear about Jack's passing. My parents Theresa & Philip Chiechi used to live in the white ranch house across the street from Jack. Jack and Philip used to talk sports and house projects together. My mom used to make Jack & Phyllis baked macaroni. Once my parents moved out of their house I've only had a chance to see Jack a few times and when I last saw him he also mentioned Phyllis had passed away. He will be missed.
Our deepest sympathy from the Daugherty family
