Age 83 of Woodbury
Went home to the Lord on May 30, 2020
Jack was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather and loyal friend. Jack worked 11 years at Great Northern RR, served in the U.S. Army, and retired from U.S. West after 30 years. He loved the outdoors, especially fishing (catch and release program), as well as hunting (even though he gave almost everything away). Jack loved nice cars and trucks and was a wonderful gardener; and he will be dearly missed.
