Condolence & Memory Journal

I extend my condolences to the extended Neidrauer family. Jack was a unique individual.I worked with Jack at K & K Insurance. He was very adept at handling claims. I really loved his sense of humor.

Thanks to you all for your condolences and kind words about my Dad. We all miss him, his love and his humor. So many good memories and a legacy that will live on for generations! The slideshow I made was built during about a 3-year period. I interviewed Dad and got most of the detail that the slideshow is based on. He reviewed a few of the drafts and enjoyed watching it. I'm comforted knowing this tribute was something he also enjoyed. If you are interested, it's viewable from youtube at this link:

Dear Neidrauer family,

I am 70 yrs old, my name is Marty Link, I live in East Aurora, NY now for many years. Jack and his parents lived directly across the street from my family on Rix Place in Silver Creek. May I first express my condolences on your loss, with the passing of your husband, father and grandfather. I happened on his notice as I was looking on line to find someone else in the Dunkirk Observer. Even though I was only 7 to 10 years old, I clearly remember Jack as a college guy and in particular the glorious sound of that Jaguar XK roadster that was either his or his fathers. In the summer, Jack played by the hour, skipping a ball against the front porch wall and catching it in his glove, never missing a beat. As I grew older my family would recount to me what an athlete and golfer he was. Even though it has probably been over 60 years since those days, I do remember Jack and just want to share warm thoughts of a kid from across the street. May God grant you HIS comfort and peace in your time of bereavement. Respectfully, marty link

To Jack: Your sense of humor and sense of fun were truly engaging. You will be missed by the young, the old, and everyone in-between who had the pleasure of knowing you. I am so glad I was one of them. Rest in peace. Love, Barbara

Jack was the leader of the great "Contract" perhaps one of the greatest sports duo's in history. Now that you are up there please ask the Man how to hit that one iron and for goodness sake get rid of that ladies putter. You will be missed my friend and partner
