Jack served his country while in the US Army. He was stationed in Europe from 1954 to 1957. He received several medals of honor. He was a great asset to his community and surrounding areas in his service in the A/C, heating and appliance business. He was employed by White Westinghouse for 15 years as service manager and retired after 26 years at LSU Shreveport as operator engineer. He enjoyed deer hunting in the hills of Catahoula Parish, fox hunting with his many walker hounds and enjoying the fellowship of the other hunters. Jack’s church membership was at Providence Baptist Church but presently was attending Summer Grove Baptist Church.
He loved and adored his family and greatly enjoyed having them visit at his country home where he lived for 49 plus years on Colquitt Road.
Honoring Jack as pallbearers will be his grandsons and nephews.
The family would like to express special thanks to Dr. Noble, Dr. Koticha, and Dr. Sikand for their continued care given over the years and Regional Hospice for their care and compassion given to Jack over the past few weeks.
