As a devout Roman Catholic, Jack served God and the Church as an altar boy, Eucharistic Minister, Usher, and Sacristan. He taught Religious Education for 25 years.
Jack enjoyed camping, fishing, gardening and retirement. However, his greatest love was his faith, family and service to his country and others. He truly loved spending time with his grandchildren and watching them grow. Jack was deeply religious and even visited Pope Benedict. Jack was loving, friendly, generous, enjoyed a good meal, and made us all laugh.
Predeceased by his brothers James, Joseph, Thomas, and sister Anna Perrotti.
Survived by his sister Grace (Joseph Patrick (Brud)) Ryan and several nieces and nephews. Jack will be deeply missed by his dogs, Peaches and Joe.
The family would like to extend their gratitude to the First Responders and all who may have helped at the scene, his many friends, and parishioners at St. Augustine’s Church.

I remember going to adoration at St. Augustine in troy and Jack would be there and always asked me if I was thirty and he would offer me a bottle of water. He told me stories . I remember he put flowers to our mother Mary.
