More than 200 people attended the benefit book signing for Jack Feezer's memoir May 4, 2013 at Fairhaven retirement community, in Sykesville, and contributed to the R. Wayne Feezer Foundation -- and it was recently announced that more donations were made through many requests for additional copies of the memoir, with $18,000-plus being raised.

As Jack Feezer promised, he has provided a 100 percent match for all donations.

The foundation was established by Jack and Bea Feezer in 2008 as a memorial to their son, Wayne.

To date, more than $100,000 has been donated to many charities and local youth organizations through the foundation and the Feezers' generosity. This year's benefactors include Wards Chapel United Methodist Church, and the Wards Chapel R. Wayne Feezer Scholarship Fund awarded seven students this past year. Jack and his wife are lifetime members of this church and their late son Wayne was an active member. Additionally, donations have been made to the Shriners Children's Hospital, Our Daily Bread, Autism Research, Carroll Hospice's Dove House and many more.

Jack Feezer, who turned 94 on Groundhog Day, titled his memoir "A Life Well-Lived, Well-loved, Well- Earned." Proceeds from sales of the book, along with his match, go to the foundation.
