He proudly served in the U.S. Air Force. His career in Hydraulic/Pneumatic Engineering led the family to five different states. He retired from Iowa Fluid Power in October of 2018.

Jack was an active member and Elder of South Park Presbyterian Church. He belonged to the Gold Wing Touring Association, serving in many leadership roles. He volunteered with the Mississippi Bend Trykes building specialty bikes for kids. He enjoyed golfing, woodworking and riding the open road with his friends. Family was the most important thing to Jack, especially his beloved grandchildren. He loved a good game night, full of jokes and laughter here locally and in Yuma, Arizona.

Jack is survived by his wife of 48 years, Joyce; children, Jennifer (Aaron) Shannon of Coal Valley, Illinois, Jason (Rian) May of Milan, Illinois, and Melissa Snell-Christen of Springfield, Illinois; six grandchildren; and a sister, Nancy Hayter of Austin, Texas.
