In 1960 Jack met the love of his life, Shirley Ann Orvik and they were married at Mount Olivet on September 23, 1961.

In the off-season Jack worked a variety of jobs. He always worked with a positive attitude and without complaint to help provide the best life possible for his family. Jack and Shirley sold the resort in 1990 and moved west and eventually retired in Florence, Arizona where they made many dear friends and enjoyed their days visiting in the shade, playing cards, and telling stories.

He shared 61 years and 2 days with his wife Shirley, he was so proud of his two children and their spouses, Taryll and John and Al and Laura, and he was so happy to have celebrated so many holidays and special moments with his grandchildren Katie, Allison, Jack, and Kate.
