Happy 92nd birthday, Jack Connolly

Jack with daughter Nancy.

I want to wish one of The Chronicle’s loyal readers, Jack Connolly, a very happy 92nd birthday. Jack is the father of my wife, Nancy, her two sisters, Deb and Joan, and a man whose life has taken him around the world and into the lives of many. He is lively of mind, fit of body, and he likes ice cream and coffee.

Jack graduated high school from St. Martin’s in Olympia, Washington, then attended Washington State College before doing his bit for Uncle Sam . . .
