Jack was born and raised in Healdsburg, living most of his life in Sonoma County. Jack graduated from Healdsburg High School, joined the Navy following graduation and upon his return attended barber college in San Francisco. He was the local barber alongside his partner and friend, Duane Herman for 25 years at the Z & H Barber Shop. He then pursued a long successful career in real estate specializing in vineyards and ranches until his retirement. Jack’s great loves were his family, friends, and his community, donating his time to local clubs and charities. Jack was, in his way a historian of Healdsburg and the Geyserville area spinning yarns of those areas and all its residents. Jack loved life and will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him.
