He loved playing cards, especially pinochle, with his friends on a weekly basis. He also enjoyed having coffee and smoking a cigar with the guys. Bob also loved to enjoy a meal and made a point of getting to the Plaza Diner in Shelton, sometimes twice a day. He took great pride in his family and shared many memories of his life with his children and grandchildren. Survivors include four children, Robert Jacko, Jr. of North Haven, Gregory Jacko, Karen Ross of New Fairfield, and Audrey Falaguerra of Milford; 11 grandchildren; 7 great grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.
