Crackerjacks member Don Kubick of Morristown, New Jersey passed away on September 10, 2018.
I first met Don at Keller’s Demo in 2004. We took the PGI shooters course together and I told Don about the Crackerjacks and he joined in 2005. Don frequently volunteered for safety on the experimental line. He loved to build shells, rockets and ground bombs. He had learned how to build fireworks from an Uncle when he was a teenager and building was a passion he enjoyed his enter life.
Don also enjoyed teaching and was happy to share his hobbies with anyone who would ask. He was very active in his local fire company and did training for them in handling fireworks.
When I became a lead shooter in 2006, Don would also come to visit and help with July 4th shows until 2017.
A remembrance by Chuck Peck
Our thoughts and well wishes are with Don’s family and we’ll miss him at future shoots, but I’m sure he will be watching and enjoying the show.
