Jack (Big Red) Breen, the 3rd born of 4 boys, was born on April 18th, 1939, and grew up in Weston, Ontario. Jack’s younger years were very worrisome for him, as his dad fought in World War II. At a tender age of 16, Jack started his career as a “heavy equipment operator “and worked up until the age of 78. He spent many winters North of the Arctic Circle, building runways on Ice and land, aka. tundra. He never married and spent his free time building models of all types, and sizes.
