Jack was born at Aughagaw, and later lived at Cappog Lodge, Ballinode. He was educated in Dublin, and became a primary school teacher in Monaghan, teaching through the medium of Irish. He played rugby for Dungannon, Bedford, Scunthorpe, and Hull. While serving in the RAF he became part of a team responsible for introducing Automatic Data Processing via computers. He set up SEC, a Weighing/Labelling Solutions enterprise in 1970. In later years, he dedicated his time to genealogy and family history, particularly in relation to North Monaghan. His leisure time included country music, movies, watching Ulster Rugby, and taking holidays in the United States. Jack was very active in online history/genealogy forums, and was ever helpful with time, information and resources. We remember him with great fondness.
