Jack was born in Erie, PA in January 27, 1948, son of the late Donald and Agnes (Rettger) Farrington. He worked as an auto detailer for Mrs. Clean, a business his wife owned and operated.

He is also survived by a few nieces and nephews.

Jack was loved by all the nurses and aides at the Chautauqua County Home during his many years there.
