Ralph Eugene Shaak Jr.

Ralph E. Shaak, Jr. (Jack), 93, formerly of Perkasie, passed away at Hidden Meadows in Sellersville on Friday, October 6, 2023.  Born in 1930, he was the son of the late Ralph E., Sr. and Pauline (Auer) Shaak. He was the loving husband of the late Lorraine (Knieriem) Shaak, with whom he shared 66 years of marriage.  

Jack was a veteran of the United States Army and served in the Korean War for 4 years in the Airborne Division. He spent his early career as the night supervisor at RCA in Sellersville, PA and later worked at MOPAC in Hatfield, PA where he retired in 1995. 

Jack and Lorraine enjoyed traveling cross-country in their motorcoach and regularly attended Penn Coachman rallies with their friends, their miniature schnauzer, Serena, with their Harley Davidson motorcycle in tow. Besides riding his Harley, Jack’s other hobbies included buying and selling antiques, hunting turkey and deer and woodworking which included building birdhouses, clocks, furniture, and trunks. If you drove down West Rock Road, you would always find him sitting out front of his house waving to everyone who passed by. His family has fond memories of laugh-filled gatherings at their home in Perkasie, where Jack would whip up homemade blackberry ice cream and take his grandchildren for rides on his Harley. 

Jack is survived by his two children Terrence Shaak (Denise), Alicia Getty (Mark); his four grandchildren, Tanya Shaak, Andreya Shaak, Samantha Getty, and Rich Shaak; his three great-grandchildren, Mason Crouthamel, Kaylee Shaak, and Teagan Sempowski; his three brothers, Ron Shaak, Bobby Shaak, and Jeff Shaak; his four sisters, Becky Orr, Phyllis Shaak, Cass Shaak, and Sandy Shaak (Pam Weikert). In addition to his wife Lorraine, Jack is predeceased by two brothers, Bill Shaak and Mickey Shaak; three sisters, Patsy Shaak, Debbie Sowers, and Mary Bearns; his daughter, Colleen Miller (Greg); and granddaughter, Carrie Shaak.
