Like many people, he tried different careers before trying drywall. Jack worked for almost 40 years as a drywall installer. In the early years, work in the construction industry meant going where the jobs were. This resulted in much moving around throughout Southern and Western Ontario. In the mid-1980s he went to Hamilton where he remained.
Jack loved sports with his favourite teams being the Blue Jays and Maple Leafs. He would sit for hours outside when the weather allowed listening to the games and enjoying a beverage.
