(#2006) Jack C (Hagerstown, MD)
5/23-28/2008 in Bloomington, MN  EVENT: 35th Gopher State Roundup  TYPE: AA, Male, Story

Sober 26 years since 4/7/1982, Jack became a Judge and was nearly killed by a package pipe bomb before he came into the Program.

Married 42 years, Jack was a Maryland state senator from 1974-76 and a Judge from 1977 to 1993.

Jack's drinking took him to the point where most of his organs were shutting down. The surgeons convinced him to quit drinking for a year. He spent the worst time in his life not drinking and not changing.

He died sober, Tuesday, July 31, 2012 at age 70.

I am grateful I had a chance to spend a few moments with Jack over the years.

I need to remember to treat everyone I am with as if it is the last time I will see them alive.
