Condolence: Dear Jane, Steve, Jason and families--please accept my deepest sympathy on John's passing. He was a wonderful "family man", a friend to many, a successful businessman, and a true gentleman! You are all in my thoughts and prayers! May the love and support of your family and friends help you through this difficult time.

Condolence: Sorry to learn of Jack's passing. He was a positive presence in the community. I would describe Jack as a gentleman with class. Enjoyed our conversations and his creative mind as he looked for solutions and new approaches. He certainly has experienced a New Horizon beyond this world! Rest in peace, Mr. Petuck. Our love to Jane and the family.

Condolence From: John Lyons
Condolence: The first time I saw “Jack” he pitched a no-hitter for Beech Creek against our hometown (Howard) adult baseball team. The next summer “Mr. Petuck” was supervising the Howard playground, managing the Howard Little League team and pitching for the Howard adult team. I was 10 or 11 years old and certain that Mr. Petuck could coach me into a great baseball player. Instead after my couple of years of undistinguished effort in Little League, he “recruited” me to be the full-time scorekeeper for the adult team – I even traveled with him to away games. I continued with that “job” into my early college years after which he asked my younger brother to be the full-time scorekeeper. Mr. Jack Petuck had become a close family friend – and there is much more to the story to be told at another time. I’m kind of sorry I lived in the Borough and had to attend the Howard School (all 12 grades in one building) because I missed out on the Gravel Point Academy experience. I’ll miss his physical presence, but I’ll always cherish the memory of his kindness and his quiet way of counseling and leading. I have not yet met Jack’s sons, but, Jane, I guess you know that Jack was a MAJOR hero of mine.

Condolence From: Robert (Pete) Echard
Condolence: Sorry to hear about Jack's passing, but I'm glad I visited him and Jane at the office when I retired and moved back to PA. I remember them visiting my uncle at 112 Kate St in OM when I was a child. Such nice people. I didn't realize Jack's sister is married to Principle Tocimak. I wish I could attend the funeral, but I will be out of the country. I will think of Jack and his family and friends that day.

Condolence: Jack and I shared a great many memories, both from the golf course and dreams of wealth from inventive ideas that never came to fruition. In all that time he always demonstrated a strength of character and friendship that I cherished to this day.

Condolence From: Osceola Mills Alumni Association
Condolence: Jack was always the first person to return his registration form to attend the triennial Osceola Mills Alumni Association reunion and was actually looking forward to his coming in 2019. We will miss his energy and presence. Eat 'em Osceola

Condolence From: Mike and Linda Ritchie Burns
Condolence: Dear Petuck Family,
LInda attends the Osceola Mills Presbyterian Church. Both Mike and Linda grew up and still live in Osceola Mills. The Petucks (Jack and Gertrude, Louise and Jack) have always been fine people and fine Christians. We are saddened that the world lost one of the best. However, heaven is welcoming with open arms a wonderful addition.

Please accept our deepest sympathy and our love. God is Love.

Linda and Mike Burns
Eat ' Em Up Osceola!
