Saving his last dance for his devoted late wife, Bernice, Jack Junod, left this world with his dear children by his side, singing him his favorite songs and remembering all of his life’s stories. Together with his wife Bernice they had seven children: Jack Junod (“Marie”), Susan McDermott (Pat), Bernice Losinno (David), Nancy Szyszko (Paul), Patrick Junod (Kathy), Robin Cymbalski (Pete) and the late Robbie. Each one loved their dad with no measure. He took joy in seeing the growth of his family with 19 grandchildren: Brittany, John, Erin, Bridget, Katie, Elizabeth, Matthew Robert, Apryl, Blasé, Carly, Dakota, Eryal, Colin, Kevin, Lindsay, Pioty, Christian, Julian and 6 great grandchildren: Matilda, Parker, Scarlett, Hazel, Lily and Fiona. He was the oldest child of John and Alice Junod and big brother to: Jerry, Alice, Ethel, Cass, Ellen, Maryann and the late Jim and Joe. Uncle to many nieces and nephews. Brother-in-law to Helen Talerico and the late Ralph. Dear friend to Rachael DiMarco.
Jack loved the lasting friendships that he forged throughout his life especially his dear Wildwood friends. He was a long-time member of Torresdale Frankford Country Club. He was a 50-year participant with the Men of Malvern, a founding member of the Jim Junod Lodge, and had lifelong devotion to his alma mater North Catholic High School. Jack loved golf and a good game of pinochle. He loved learning about people and continued that curiosity until his death. He was the consummate “sales guy” known to man - if there was a good angle or loophole he would find it!
Jack travelled the world, loved his country, but in the end it was his home, faith and family that gave him the most happiness.
Jack was a “one of a kind” and will be remembered always by those who loved him. The world lost a good one, but God gained a gem. Keep on dancing, Jack.
