He was named to the Bowling Hall of Fame and taught young people the sport. He played several nights a week in leagues around his Florida home. Jack was a member of the Elks Lodge. He was a proud U.S. Army Korean War veteran.
Jack was preceded in death by his parents, Anthony “Tony” and Mary, nee LaMonica, Sciuto; his former wife and mother of his children, Irene Sciuto; and several brothers and sisters.
