In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death in 2019 by his wife, Evelyn Lantzer and sister, Diane Lantzer.
Endless memories of Jack, live on in the hearts of those who survive; his children, Vanessa Hadbavny of Akron, Edward (Danette) Lantzer of Hartville; step-daughters, Tracy Stewart (Michael Trent) of North Carolina, Christine Pascale of Tennessee; grandchildren, Damon, Drew, Lauren, Jamie, Cara, and Brooke; sister, Karen Shook of Brewster; and brother, Gary (Joanne) Lantzer of Massillon.
A Vietnam Veteran, Jack served his country proudly, in the United States Air Force. He enjoyed sports, especially watching his son coach basketball and softball and watching his granddaughter, Cara, play soccer. He was an avid movie watcher. Jack’s most treasured and unique gift was his love of family and the blessing they brought to him.
