Many of you knew Jack Florance. He suffered a stroke last May and passed away a little more than a week ago. His services were Sunday in Delaware, Ohio and many swimmers attended.
He was previously a Buckeye Master and was most recently a member of O*H*I*O.
He made the All-American list many times, won numerous National Championships and was a double winner at the FINA World Championship Aquatic Games in Christchurch in 2002.
A Varsity "O" member from his years at the Ohio State University, he was known for his freestyle sprinting ability.
He always had a twinkle in his eyes and a smile on his face. We will miss him! I will post memorial fund information soon. The outdoor pool at Mingo Park in Delaware will be renamed the Jack Florance pool after its planned renovation.
