My heartfelt thoughts to all of the family! My Dad (Fred Bleich) always said Jack Connell was the BEST snowplow operator a town could have - did the entire town HIMSELF in one day. And lifted the blade edge at our driveway when my Dad was sick. I hope they're sharing a cold beer together right now. God bless you Jack.
