John “Jack” Quinn, 89, of Holliston, passed away peacefully in his home on March 3, 2017. Born in Cambridge, he was the son of the late MaryEllen (Lenihan) and Daniel Quinn.

Jack was a graduate of Boston University and was an Army Veteran of World War II, having served in Germany. Prior to retiring, he was the owner of Worcester Business Machines, a copy machine company in Worcester. Jack was an avid model railroad enthusiast. He collected many model trains over the years and has an impressive collection. Some of Jack’s favorite times were spent at his homes on the Cape and in Florida, where he enjoyed spending time with friends on his boat, “The MaryEllen” as well as fishing and playing endless golf.  Over the years, Jack developed an interest in antique cars which he loved to drive, collect, and to discuss with his many friends and family members. Jack was also a sports enthusiast and followed most sports with a passion and zeal, especially his beloved Red Sox.

He is predeceased by his siblings, Joseph Quinn, Rev. Daniel Quinn and Margaret Quinn. It was a privilege for all those who knew Jack.  His kindness, generosity and quick wit touched the lives of many. He will be dearly missed. God Bless you Jack.
