He enjoyed cottaging in Port Sydney and in 1995 he bought a cottage on Mary Lake where he loved all the joys of boating, fishing and family fun.
Golfing was a big part of that fun and he enjoyed the time spent playing it at the cottage with friends and family and in Palm Desert California in the winter months.
He also looked forward to the annual Crosby family Golf Tournament when he played with his sons and grandsons.
Jack was a proud member of Thistletown Lions Club. He served in many capacities, several as president and in 1988 served as Governor of A7…
He was a strong determined man and ” just got things done”, earning him the nickname ” action Jackson”…
He was one of a kind and will be dearly missed…
