Jack was very active with the United Way of Lake County Leadership Program. He was also an active volunteer and mentor in the Lakeland Welding Program and The Gang for Good Welding Program at Euclid High School.

He was the beloved husband of 28 years of Elaine M. (nee Mandabach) Stapleton; loving father of Shelby Virginia Stapleton; step son of Harriet Miller; brother of David (Sharon) Stapleton; and uncle of many nieces and nephews.
Jack was preceded in death by his parents, Robert F. and Virginia (nee Ruhl) Stapleton; and siblings, Nancy (Ben) Litra, and Caroline Stapleton.

Elaine and Shelby,
I am so sorry for your loss, Jack was such a good person and I will miss Jack. Jack helped me out so many times and was someone that I could rely on without question. Jack had never turned me away if i needed assistance with something here at Ametco. In addition on a personal basis me and Jack would talk and laugh about many different things and was someone I could always relate to. Jack was a very good person with a kind heart and those who knew him well are deep in sorrow. Since I heard the news I have been upset over this loss. My heart goes out to both of you in sympathy and remember Jack will always be with you in spirit.

Yours Truly
Eric Mitchell
