So sorry to hear about the passing of Jack Penson. My deepest condolences to the entire Penson family. I have some great memories with him & his wife as they always invited me to come out & have fun with their train displays they setup there, plus Jack helped me with my train setup at my house as well. My dad & him both grew up on Pearl Street in Norwalk & were very close friends. You will be greatly missed Jack. God bless the entire Penson family.
