John (Jack) Theodore Jurczyk, 87, of Wall passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Monday, December 21, 2020. He was a beloved son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He left this world surrounded by immense love from his family, who will forever hold him in their hearts.

Jack was born on December 15, 1933 in Newark, NJ to his late parents Stella Bodgziewicz Jurczyk and Felix Jurczyk and was raised in Kearny. After graduating from Kearny High School he enlisted in the US Navy and served faithfully from 1952-1956. He is a veteran of the Korean Conflict. Jack attended Farleigh Dickenson University and graduated from the Manhattan School of Printing. He was a typesetter for the Newark Evening News and the Newark Star Ledger. He retired from Emery Air Freight in 1997. Jack married his soul mate Margaret (Teresa) Drury on June 16, 1962 and they moved to Wall in 1972. Jack was a member of the Knights of Columbus, the Manasquan Elks and was a communicate of St. Catharine’s Church.

Jack was predeceased by his brother Raymond and is survived by his beloved wife of 58 years Margaret Jurczyk, his brother Russell and his wife Gracie, his three daughters and sons-in-law; Joan and Mark Vinges, Lisa and Richard Hagerty and Dyan and Alex Spiezio, as well as his seven grandchildren Mark, Kristen, Alexander, Brian, Haley, Shannon and Brendan.

Jack always took time to appreciate the simple but fulfilling activities that brought joy to both him and the people around him. He was a prolific gardener and loved to tend to his yard, ensuring that nothing – not even a single blade of grass – was out of place. His attention to detail, passion for orderliness and strength of mind and body were one for the books; when Jack had his mind set on something, you could consider it done. The world has lost an awe-inspiring man. Jack loved his life and could be found any morning reading the papers while drinking a cup of Dunkin Donuts coffee after which he would go off to Home Depot to get supplies for the day’s projects. He loved a good pint while watching the NY Giants. He enjoyed speculating in the stock market and was a student of history and politics. He was always up for a lively discussion about current or historical events. He was a lover of fishing and animals and was a world traveler who summered in Ireland and toured Europe but his greatest joy was spoiling his three girls, there is nothing he wouldn’t do for the three of them, and spending time with his grandchildren.

Family and friends are invited to attend a memorial visitation on Monday, December 28,2020 from 4:00pm – 7:00pm at Orender Family Home for Funerals, 2643 Old Bridge Road, Manasquan, NJ 08736.
