I remember the first time I met Jack, about 45 years, when me, a young non-Catholic kid from the "wrong side of the tracks", with long hair, wearing a flashy disco outfit came calling for his daughter Nancy. He was kind and gracious then and more-so as Nancy and my relationship blossomed into a marriage of nearly 44 years. He loved me as one of his own always. He will sorely be missed.

Jack was a wonderful neighbor in our Steeplechase community. He was always helping neighbors and greeted everyone with his warm, friendly smile. May His Memory Be a blessing to all who knew him. Ron and Dianna Dunnington

Our hearts go out to Mary and all of Mary & Jack's kids and grandkids. We always looked forward to seeing Jack occasionally over the years. He was never without a smile and some great humor. He was a classy guy who exuded charm. We're sorry for the loss his loved ones are feeling and extend our deepest sympathy.

Dear Family and Friends, my deepest sympathy. I worked at Alcoa and with Jack for 10 years. Will always have fond memories of him; his laugh and sense of humor were priceless. A small group of us would have lunch together periodically and enjoyed laughing and good fun. He will be missed by so many.

Uncle Jack always had so many memories to share with us Krieger's regarding your "Krieger" brothers (Ace, Pete, and my loving father Bob). We will miss all this and all your good nature. Love Mary Kay and Joe

Our sincere sympathies to Nancy, Bruce, Mary, and the Krieger family. We had the pleasure of the annual July 4th picnic - and share "Rosie's" Birthday cake. He was always smiling and maybe would have a little joke or two. Usually, the grandkids surrounded him and we heard a lot of laughter. He will always be remembered. Thank you for sharing this wonderful man with us.
