Jack Donald Marks
September 8, 1925 - March 19, 2021

So sorry to Pat, Barbara, Julie and all his grandkids for this loss. Sad to have missed his service and seeing family. Many great memories of my Uncle Jack and Aunt Nita. Best times were when I got to visit on my own and had them all to myself. Thankful for all the grandkids, nieces and nephews who had him in their lives, what a blessing. He will be missed.

Julie, I am so sorry for the loss of your dad. I will always remember his kindness toward me during our Chapel Academy years. May precious memories comfort you during this sad time.

Jack was more than an uncle to me…he was a mentor, a teacher, a friend, a confidant, and a father-figure as my own dad passed away. The things I learned from Jack are far too many to list here. The “how-to” lessons were many, but the life lessons were many more and I’m a better man for having him in my life. I know that there are many of you who would say the same thing.

I will miss him terribly, but he is in a much better place and I have a vivid memory that is a glimpse of what happened when he opened his eyes in Heaven. Kathie and I had the privilege of taking Jack to see Nita in the hospital before she passed away. They had been unable to see each other for some time and the reunion we witnessed that day was filled with more joy, love, and tenderness than I have ever seen. It was a sight I will never forget and immediately thought of it when I heard he was gone. What a sweet reunion they had in Heaven.

Jack Marks was many good things to many people, but to me as a brother-in-law of only 11 years, one of his most defining characteristics was being a true gentleman.

Funny, smart, helpful, playful, giving, loving Jack was all these things and more, but he seemed to belong to a vanishing breed of men: Gracious, courteous, welcoming and well-spoken, he quickly earned the affection and respect of those fortunate enough to meet and know him.

He seemed to be known not so much as "Mr. Marks", but as "Jack" to many, and "Mr. Jack" to many more. We have all lost a strong, kind, gentle spirit from our lives.

You are loved and missed, Gentleman Jack.
