In his 20s, he helped build the highways and byways of Western Pennsylvania. Years later, he built the foundation – literally – of the Cranberry Township Volunteer Fire Company. All the while, he was building a family and relationships.

Hack’s family moved from Glenshaw to the Township in 1946 to a family homestead along the current Goehring Road. It was around this time that Hack met Denton Powell, a young man two years his senior whose family had also just moved to the Township. He also soon met Mary Tracy, whose family operated a farm across town along Rochester Road.
It was these two relationships that became the anchor of everything that followed.
