Jack Adams

(Dec 29, 1922 to Nov 30, 2012)

Jack was independent, strong willed, seldom wrong, but always had a heart of gold.. He was a graduate of Swedesboro H.S. and served during WWII in a radar unit in France. Whether rain, sleet or snow, Jack delivered his Rural Route for the Post Office, retiring in 1977.rn Retirement found Jack pursuing his two greatest passions: history and gardening. The inside of his home resembled a museum, dedicated to preserving Swedesboro’s past. There was hardly a question about the Borough he was unable to answer. The outside of his home was more manicured than Longwood Gardens. Friends and neighbors also reaped the benefits of his gardening prowess: his perennials decorated half the yards in Swedesboro. It’s somewhat debatable about what Jack enjoyed more: deep sea fishing on his boat, “Jumpin Jack”, or spit polishing it.rn Jack is survived by a cousin and a few old friends. His extended family, however, was his neighborhood on Franklin Street. Things won’t be the same without the man in the red shuttered house. He was pre-deceased by his sister, Carolyn Loper and a nephew, Norris Cassady.rn Come celebrate 89 great years Tuesday 10:00 a.m. at Daley Life Celebration Studio, Swedesboro where there will be a service at 11:00. Burial Lake Park Cemetery. Donations to Swedesboro Historical Society, 1500 Kings Hwy., Swedesboro 08085 will be appreciated.

    My father, Harold Madara, had great stories about Jack and my dad in Swedesboro. Although he passed away in 1985, he is still my best friend and dad. Can still remember story about him and Jack going to Atlantic City just to get a porkroll sandwich on the boardwalk.
