John (Jack) Joseph Considine – May 8, 1932 to May 25, 2019

Jack was born the eighth child, sixth son, of 12 children of Ambrose and Theresa (Wall) Considine. He had three sisters and eight brothers.
Jack and his siblings were born and raised in the Bronx, New York. After various jobs, Jack enlisted in the army at the age of 19 years old. Jack was deployed to Korea in October 1952 and seriously wounded in March 1953. After recuperating, Jack returned to the front line and was wounded again in April 1953. Jack was awarded two Purple Heart commendations during his tour in Korea. He was honorably discharged in October 1954. Unable to find employment Jack re-enlisted into the Army in 1955.
During his second stint in the Army he met and fell in love with his blue-eyed beauty Alice Lutz. They were married in February 1957. Jack was honorably discharged from the Army a second time in August 1958. He attended Manhattan Trade School where he studied typewriter repair and worked for CIT Finance until they did away with the department.
Jack became self-employed as the owner/operator of an ice cream truck in Astoria, Queens. He then owned a gift and card shop in Astoria.
Jack and Alice moved to Boston, Massachusetts where he was once again self-employed. Jack eventually accepted employment with Harvard University as a typewriter repairman for the next 20 years.
Jack and Alice moved to Tolland, Connecticut where they lived until retiring to Ocala, Florida.
Jack and Alice returned to Connecticut in 2018 to Keystone Place at Newbury Place to be close to Jack’s sisters, Rosemarie and Jo Ann and Alice’s sister, Cathy and her husband, Jim. Jack and Alice also have many nephews and nieces in the area.
Jack remained extremely active in various military organizations such as the Veterans of the Korean War and America Legion. He and Alice attended many reunions around the country of the 31st Infantry Regiment (go Polar Bears!) Jack was generous with his time, hands and heart. He visited wounded military at Walter Reed Medical Center in Maryland and he was always the first to help out anyone in need. Jack liked woodworking in the shop he created in his basement in Tolland.
Jack and Alice were married 62 years this past February.
