Jack helped to develop much of the infrastructure and many of the communities in and around Annapolis and Anne Arundel County. Alongside his career, he continued harvesting crops and raising animals.His hobbies included antiquing with his wife, bowling, hunting, and collecting Native American artifacts. He was a member of the Annapolis Elks and former member of the Davidsonville Ruritan. Of all things in life, Jack most enjoyed being a devoted husband, father to his five children, a grandfather, great-grandfather, and spending time on his farm in Davidsonville. He loved these things above all else.
     Jack was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Mary Helen; his son, George Henry Scible; one grandson, Benjamin Scible; and two great-grandchildren, Camden and Madelyn Terry. He is survived by his two sons, Mark Scible of Gambrills and David Scible of Edgewater; two daughters, Mary May of Davidsonville and Joan Wood of Deale; eight grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and a host of dear friends.
