In memory of
John "Jack" Jeffries
John "Jack" Jeffries, born in Nebraska, Sept. 28, 1935, passed away in his sleep on Wednesday, March 27, 2019. Jack served in the U.S. Navy from 1954 to 1973 as a Chief Petty Officer where his duties as a photographer took him to such faraway places as Japan, the Antarctic, and other ports of call. In 1967, he served aboard the aircraft carrier USS Constellation. Upon his honorable discharge, he and his family moved to Fort Bragg, California, in 1977 where he opened, owned and operated "Jack's Marine" at Dolphin Isle. Among his many joys were reading, fishing, golfing and his BMW motor bike. Jack's long, lanky frame, natural stage presence and deep booming, baritone voice made him the perfect villain at the "Footlighters Gaslight Gaities" for many years. His quick wit, easy demeanor and vast knowledge of everything mechanical, made him a fixture at many social Fort Bragg establishments. Health issues and the need to be closer to his family brought Jack to Livermore, California, three years ago, but Jack never really left Fort Bragg. He is survived by his wife, Darlene; daughters, Nona (Keith) and Holly (Scott); and son, John (Myrna); nine grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. His vibrant spirit - personified by his wide infectious and slightly impish smile - will be deeply missed by all lucky enough to have known him. In lieu of gifts, please donate to Wounded Warriors or Alzheimer's research.
