Jack Trechock, 87, of Woodbury Heights, New Jersey, passed away on Tuesday, January 29, 2019 with his loving family at his side.
A kind, loving and gentle man, Jack was patient and always put others needs before his own. He was devoted to his family and his faith. Jack was involved in all aspects of his children’s lives and was their biggest fan. His favorite times were filled with times spent with family…times like hiking, sledding, fishing in the Ventnor bay and at the cabin in Georgia, and water skiing. Jack also loved to tend to his vegetable garden, listening to classical music and working on cars.
