AUSTINTOWN - Dominic "Jack" Terrago Jr., 78, passed away on June 24, 2023.
He was born on July 8, 1944, in Youngstown to Dominic J. and Linda Hammond Terrago Sr.
After attending Youngstown State University, he joined the United States Navy where he attended Radar School. Jack proudly served his country and continued to support his fellow veterans throughout his life.
Jack worked for Packard Electric G.M. for thirty years until retirement. Outside of work, Jack was a dedicated husband and father who devoted his life to his family. As an avid sports fan, he cherished time spent watching games with family and friends.
Jack's love for Ohio State never wavered and his Buckeye pride could be seen from miles away. He especially relished the opportunity to cheer on the Buckeyes alongside loved ones during big games.
