Jack Downie was a kind, loving man, who had no enemies. Everyone loved Jack! He was a sanguine of sanguines... very happy and easy-going, always laughing and story-telling. He told awful stories of the fraternity pranks of his college days, and fun stories of his courting of his wife, Helen, when he took racing trips to Ohio to see her on weekends. He was a good and faithful husband, and loving father of 7... he was often wondering if "God wanted them to have just one more!" He loved boats, and the seas... and the Church and his God!
