Jack was given the gift of life on March 21, 1947 in Trenton, New Jersey but had to give it back on July 2, 2017. This was extremely difficult but he was grateful for the privilege to live.

Jack is predeceased by his parents, Stanley and Frances Sikucinski formerly of Fanwood, NJ and Sarasota, Florida.  He is survived by his loving wife, Rosemary (nee Manfredi), Kathryn Lind and husband Eugene of New Jersey, Michael and Matthew Sikucinski of Miami, and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Jack would like to let you know that his work here is done. However, while on this earth, Jack received his BS degree at Southampton University and continued a successful career as a Quality Control Inspector for several major engineering firms including Dupont-Belco Technologies, prior to retiring in 2015. He also worked at The Villages Regional Hospital in their Supply Chain Division.

He received his call, a sort of an offer you can’t refuse, for an appointment from which he will not be returning. This assignment comes with a huge sign-on bonus, a reunion with family and friends he has not seen in a long time. Job security is exactly 110 percent. His new mission takes him to a wonderful place where he will be socializing, gardening and reading to his heart’s content. Music, laughter and love are guaranteed. He left clear instructions to his fun loving and faithful wife Rosemary, (nee Manfredi) of 20 years to celebrate life and not be sad about his death. Amazingly, this outlook worked for him most of the time. Jack is at peace. And on that upbeat note, Jack takes mortal leave of this rollicking, fun loving place called The Villages, which he called home for only two short years.

Friends and family can bid him adieu at St. Vincent de Paul Church in Wildwood, Florida, for a celebratory mass at 10AM, Wednesday, July 19.  After mass, a repass will be held in the Manatee Recreation Center, Hillsborough Trail, The Villages, at noon.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the American Cancer Society and the Humane Society of Sumter County is appreciated.

    Ro, you wrote a beautiful and inspirational piece for Jack. You will always love each other. That makes you luckier than most, though life is truly unfair...

    Rosemary, I found out recently about Jack's passing. Jack and I worked together for many years and I always found Jack to be very competent and easy to work with. He always had a good disposition and I was proud to work with him on the BELCO team. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    I worked with Jack for many years at Belco and recall he took his job very seriously. Besides being a nice person and easy to work with, he was very responsible and I could always feel when Jack did an inspection, I could breath a sigh of relief that that item was of the highest quality.
    I am saddened by his pasing and my condolences to Rosemary and his extended family.

    Although I met Jack only a few times, I found him to be a delightful human being and so easy to be with. May he be at rest now in the Lord. And Rosemary, remember "there is a link death cannot sever, love and remembrance last forever."

    Jack was a one of a kind, once in a life time true friend. Thankful for all the laughter and love that came so easily in his company. We will miss doing life with you. Rest in peace till we all meet again.

    Rosemary my deepest sympathies and love to you. What a beautiful tribute to your husbands life. Not everyone gets to share their journey with someone who makes them feel as uplifted as he obviously makes you feel, in this saddest time of your journey together. What a special connection. I have prayed for Jacks journey home and my hope is for you to live your life as full as you did with him, if not more so, until you are reunited. After all, he left clear instructions for you to do just that babe.
    God bless and keep you Rosemary. Love Donna

    We Know Jack will be missed by many, many people, definitely including us. We can still see him standing behind the kitchen counter serving us drinks just a few days ago, with absolutely no idea that was the last time we would see him on this Earth. Farewell to a super guy!

    We will miss our dear Jack forever. In the short time we knew him he brought so much joy and laughter into our lives. With the loss of this wonderful man, the sunshine over our little corner of the world will be forever dimmer. RIP dear friend.
