Remembering Jack


On 19 February we lost friends of books and libraries, Harper Lee and Umberto Eco. Ocee library also lost Friends member Jack McCabe. Although we saw less of him in recent years, Jack continued to volunteer into his 80s. Jack served in the US Navy and later worked as a civil engineer. During Friends book sales, he could be found keeping things ship shape and well organized. Friends Board members say “he was such a sweetheart” and that “ he loved to help us!”
