Born in Charlotte North Carolina, Jack then moved to Dayton Ohio where his family was relocated by the Air Force. He grew up with close relationships to his parents and siblings. Jack was always ready to try a new adventure and never missed out on an opportunity to have fun. He lived a full life working as a printing press operator and developing many wonderful friendships. In 1992 he met his wife Tammy Mills on a blind date and they were soon married. They were able to spend 25 loving years together traveling and enjoying life. They had just returned from a trip to Las Vegas in May where they celebrated their 25th anniversary.
His love of the ocean drew him back to North Carolina and in 1996 he and Tammy moved to Burgaw NC. He was able pursue many of his passions in life such as skydiving, obtaining his Captains License, flying, boating, fishing and traveling. He did not have a large bucket list because he always tried to live life to the fullest. His kind heart and caring disposition endured him to many people and he was blessed to have many friends and family members that he loved and that loved him.
Jacks brother Gene was able to spend the week with him while he was at Duke Hospital. His sister Penny and wife Tammy was at his bedside when he took the hand of Jesus. He will always be loved and missed by all that knew him.
Jacks battle with liver disease started 11 years ago and he was given the wonderful gift of a transplant that allowed him to continue embrace life and make the most of every day. The family encourages all who knew and loved him to consider organ or blood donation.
