On or around Independence Day I like to write about freedom, patriots, our military or veterans; this year I didn't. John R. “Jack” Hershey, Jr. passed away on June 27 and was memorialized on July 2; I was honored to attend the memorial service. But Jack's passing put me in a funk. I don't know why, it just did. Jack and I were friends - oh, I wasn't his best friend, yet over the past 10 to 15 years I was proud to declare Jack as a friend. And like literally thousands of others I always felt that Jack considered me a friend. That's just the way Jack was. I remember one of his birthday celebrations - Jack and Anna literally rented Fort Ritchie for the day, where hundreds of his friends were welcomed to fete Jack on achieving another milestone.

John R. “Jack” Hershey Jr., who died Wednesday, was known for his flair in the financial industry and his deep involvement in the community. But he also had a sense of humor. Jerry Spessard, business manager of J. Gruber's “Hagerstown Town & Country Almanack,” related a story Thursday to show how Hershey's unique outlook on life made for lasting memories. In the 1960s, Hershey was in charge of a Valentine's Day dance at Fountain Head Country Club when fire broke out in the building, Spessard said.
