In memory of
John Harry Bonck Jr.
John Harry Bonck, Jr, also known as "J.H.,"" or just plain, "Johnny"", died peacefully in his home in Pass Christian, MS, on February 19th, 2020, attended by his devoted wife and loving caregivers. Born in 1929 and raised in and around New Orleans by his high-powered executive father, Harry Sr. and his beautiful but somewhat mercurial mother, Rhea, JH found stability and structure boarding with the Brothers of the Sacred Heart at St. Stanislaus Academy in Bay St Louis, MS. There he made the acquaintance of a pack of day students, the Arceneaux brothers, who lived in a large white house just down the bay front road from the school. A large part of the appeal of that household were the four lively Arceneaux sisters including Jeanne Gabrielle whom JH met when they were both 12 years old and whom he married in 1948; Jeanne was by his side as he passed from this world 71 years later. JH was president of the JH Bonck Co., manufacturer of sportswear and uniforms and known regionally as Tulane Shirts. He is mourned by his extended family and network of lifelong friends. He was predeceased by his sister, Juanda, and his daughter, Jeannette, and is survived by, in addition to his spouse, Jeanne, his off-spring John Harry, Jolie Louise, James Earl, Jay Marion and Jeffery Paul Bonck and his nieces, Patty Bick and Suzann Bick. The next generations include 10 grandchildren with one on the way (!), four step-grandkids and two great grandchildren. Services have been postponed till a later date. Donations to a favorite charity in his memory are welcome. Live plants or flowers are also welcome and appreciated.
