John Edward Bossuyt, "Jack", 79, of Clermont, passed away peacefully at home the morning of February 26, 2022 surrounded by his loving family. Jack was born on October 29, 1942 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to the late Gerard J. and Elsie A. (nee Saville) Bossuyt. He lived in Roxborough, PA and Avalon, NJ before settling into his Tall Cedars estate in Clermont in 1981. Jack was employed for many years by the Cape May County Bridge Commission from which he retired. He was also a busy entrepreneur with a stone business for many years. He enjoyed spending his time with his nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. He attended countless games, recitals, and celebrations through the years. He taught them to fish and crab, "hunt" for frogs, raise bunnies, use an ax, and chop down trees. He liked to sit and enjoy watching the birds from his porch chair.
