Jack was born January 18, 1929 in Dover PA, the youngest child of the late William H. & Beulah M. Crone.
He married Maxine Wampler on June 20, 1946, in Maryland. Jack and Maxine owned and operated J.L. Crone’s Grocery Store in Dover until 1975. Jack was a hard worker, sometimes working 2-3 jobs at a time. In the 70’s, Jack’s sales for O’s Gold Seed Co. led him to be their distributor for PA. Jack worked as a truck driver for various companies, retiring from Consolidated Freightways in 1990.
Jack enjoyed many years of family vacations at the shore, hunting, and traveling. He loved to tell stories about his experiences as a truck driver and about his childhood.
