My husband Jim and I express our deepest sympathies to the family. Jack was a lot of fun to bowl with, talk to, and just be around. We will always remember him with a smile! (Even after he left the ten pin standing, the smile would always come back!!)

Jack, Diane, Jake, Anna and the entire Sciuto family we all feel your loss. Jack, or Dad as his Smithton family came to know him was one of the “Good Guys”. We didn’t get to know him for very long but feel fortunate to have gotten to know him when we did. He was a Great Grampa, Grampa and Dad, he was also a Patriot who proudly served his country. May the memories of Jack keep him alive in your hearts until you are together again. Rest In Peace friend.

My condolences to your family. Jack was a close bowling friend of mine. Very kind! He was always willing to help anyone with their bowling. He changed the whole way on how I bowled over a few weeks. He will be missed. RIH
