Jack Vincent 1917 - 2017

By Joe Nelson

  Sad news to report today.

Radio (KCBQ) legend Jack Vincent has passed away at the age of 99.

Jack recently came home to live comfortably after spending some time at the Grossmont Acute Care Center.

Jack was one of a kind, and I am honored to have been his friend.

What a great life this man had, he told many stories while we played pool at Shotgun Tom Kelly's house, I never once beat him in a game.

Condolences to Jack's family and friends.

He was a treasure, that is for sure.

Thanks to Owen 'Wes' Western, here is the Benny goodman clip Jack used to close his shows at KCBQ: Click Here

Rest in Peace, Jack. He was a trouper and a friend to all who knew him. He was Shotgun's mentor, and there was an unbelievable amount of respect flowing between them. I'm sure his memory will live on forever.
