Jack Still peacefully passed away at his home on May 1, 2019 at the age of 86.
He is survived by his wife Marjorie of 64 years and sisters Janet Underwood, Helen Trailer and Christine (York) Patton. He was preceded in death by his brothers, Robert, James and Harold. Jack was the loving father of Sheryl (David) Kauppi, Steven (Tammy) Still, Susan (Thomas) Garbacz; a devoted grandfather to Jeffrey (Maria) Still, Brett (Danielle) Still, Scott (Melissa) Still, Lauren (Kevin) Studley, Kristi (Nick) Karber, Jilli (David) Martenson, Matthew Kauppi, and Stefanie Garbacz; and the dearest great grandfather to Sawyer, Nora, Samuel, Simon, Conor and Beckett.
Jack was born in Detroit on November 25, 1932 and served in the army as a paratrooper from December 1949 until March of 1953. A year later he married the love of his life on July 24, 1954. He had a successful career as a drywall contractor until he retired and moved to Mancelona in 1996. His passion for golf was only superseded by his love for his family and time spent with friends.
