Memories and Condolences

Jackie was a good friend of my brother, Jack (Teesdale St). Our Dad took me, my brothers Jack & Dan and your Jack to the 1960 Eagles NFL Championship win in 1960. Great memory. Please accept our condolences
I went to St. Matthew grade school and Father Judge HS with Jack. A dear friend and a caring man. I coordinated the FJHS reunions of 50, 55, and 60 years and visited with Jack and Anita at each of them.
Good neighbor, loved talking to Jack about the old days. He will be missed.
Anita, Anthony & Annette I am so sorry for your loss. Please know that I am here for all of you. My heart aches for you. Your husband and your father was a great man. He always had a great sense of humor. He will be missed! Respectfully Love Jo Anne
My thoughts of jack make me think of the stories that my father told me about their weekly basketball games they played. I am sure he is heaven with my father (Anthony)and Dante picking right were they left off. Rest in Peace Jack
Jack and I were boyhood friends in the 50's and 60's. We both attended St. Matt's grade school and FJHS. We stayed in touch in later years as I coordinated the FJHS Reunions of 50, 55, and 60 years and my wife Kathy and I looked forward to seeing Jack and Anita when we traveled from the Houston area to Philly. Jack was a first class guy, caring and friendly. We'll miss him!
Jackie was my neighbor and best boyhood friend in the 1940s and 1950s when we both lived on the 2900 block of Chatham Street in Port Richmond. We lost contact about 60 years ago, but I still remember him as a nice guy, fun to be with. His father, Knuckie, used to cut my hair in a barber shop on Clearfield Street. Knuckie worked at the Frankford Arsenal, but cut hair part time in Port Richmond. Frank Dougherty
