Gloucester – John (Jack) Kenne…

Gloucester – John (Jack) Kennedy Davis began his journey to heaven after a year long battle with cancer. Jack passed in the peace and comfort at home under the care and love of his wife, Anna Maria (Loiacano) Davis and his sister-in-law Laura Byard. Jack and Maria recently celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary.
Jack was born and raised in Gloucester where he spent most of his life living on Goose Cove.
Jack was a calm and peaceful guy who had great love for his family and friends, he loved having his family out on his boat for fishing trips or beaching. He had a special affection for animals, just ask the neighborhood dogs who would pull their owners up the driveway to get a treat from Jack. One of his favorite shows was Dr. Poe.
Jack and his family enjoyed many cruises together, most recent March 2019 to Grand Cayman Islands, Mexico and Jamaica. He loved yard work, gardening, going to the casinos and traveling.
Jack graduated G.H.S. class of 1963, he worked with his father and brother in the family construction business before joining the Navy and Coast Guard. He spent most of his adult working life on the waterfront at Americold as a Refrigeration Engineer, retiring 10 years ago.
Jack is survived by his wife, Maria, his daughter, Jessica Perrine, grandson Jordan Perrine, (who believed he was the smartest man in the world), father-in-law Anthony Loiacano, sister-in-law, Laura Byard and her fiancé Shawn “Lucky” Pavon; brothers in-law, Michael Loiacano, Ralph Loiacano and his wife Sandra; sisters-in-law, Donna Davis and Jane Levie; niece Sara Viands and her husband Ned, niece, Ellen Evans and her husband Mat, niece and nephew Abigail and Anthony Loiacano, as well as many other nieces, nephews, cousins, and extended family members.
Jack was predeceased by his parents John B. and Evelyn A. (Cross) Davis, his brother, Kent Davis and his very special mother-in-law, Cynthia A. Loiacano.
Jack leaves a beautiful legacy for all of us. He and his wife were outside the house swinging on their swing and looking out at the cove and Maria said to him “Honey, this is like “On Golden Pond”, he replied “I know and it was sure fun getting here!” Someday we will all pass on and Jack’s wish was that we should remember to take care of each other and “make it fun getting there”. Special thanks to Shelly Pratt, Fred Nelson and Lucky Pavon for all their love and support and to the oncology unit at A.G.H., Dr. McIntyre and his staff for their care and kindness.
There will be services and a celebration of life on a later date.
