Jack A. Difiore

April 16, 1938 ~ April 14, 2021 (age 82)


Jack Difiore, 82, passed away April 14, 2021.  He was born April 16, 1938 in Barberton to the late Al and Candice Difiore.  Jack was a 1956 graduate of Kenmore High School and attended night classes at Akron University, studying Electrical Engineering.  Jack and his father, Al owned and operated A.C. Electric.  When the business closed, he continued his career with Community Electric and Thompson Electric, retiring in 2018.  Jack was dedicated to his profession and his customers, often arriving home late due to his commitment to excellence. 


Jack was a car enthusiast his entire life; collecting, detailing and showing off his treasures was one of his greatest joys.  Jack never met a stranger and had so many friends.  He was a humble man with a big heart who helped so many without the need for recognition. 


Jack leaves behind his wife of 45 years, Judy Difiore (nee Russell); children, Jackie “Cookie” (Todd) Conrad, Margaret (Rick) Kinsinger and Cathy (Greg) Barrett; grandchildren, Brittany (Jordan) Buntain, Patrick (Alescia) Conrad, Ben Barrett, Aubrey (Donald Weaver) Calvert, Ellen (AJ) Harper-Catt; great granddaughter, Mayssa; sisters, Sandy Griffith and Linda (Walter) Scott; step-children, Bobby (Julie) Moore, Todd Moore and Rod (Chris) Moore; step-grandchildren, Scott (Trudee) Moore, Jessica (Andrew) Lowther, Taylor (Ernie) Porco; step great grandchildren, Clay, Tyler, Jacob, Carter, Riley, Andrew, Hunter, Grayson and Gavin; as well as nieces, nephews and many friends.
