William “Bill” Edgar Jack, 71, of Greenfield, Indiana, passed away, February 18, 2019, at home, surrounded by family. He was born July 2, 1947 in Chicago, Illinois.

Bill is survived by his loving wife of 47 years, Evelyn “Lynn” Marie Jack; along with three sons: Andrew (Kathryn) Jack of Wheaton, Illinois, Daniel (Marjorie) Jack of Greenfield, Indiana, Brian (Laura) Jack of Chicago, Illinois; seven grandchildren: Ian, Emma, Garrett, Brennan, Addison, Ramona, and Max; brother Robert (Alexis) Jack; sisters-in-law, Sherry (Kent) Binder; Barbara (Russell) Heinselman, Helen (David) Cooper, Lois (Karl) Hartse, Marjorie (Timothy) Parks; brother-in-law David (Jean) Boone; and many loving nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, William and Lois Jack, and his brother, Bruce Jack.

Bill was a 1965 graduate of Wheaton Central High School in Wheaton, Illinois, and a student at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, Illinois. Bill worked as an IT Specialist for The Evangelical Alliance Mission, traveling the world, networking computers for missionaries in Europe, Asia, and South America. He then followed his dream to start the DataShop, a computer consulting and sales business in Princeton, Illinois. The last 10 years of his career were spent with C. Cretors & Company in Chicago, Illinois, where he enjoyed working as part of a family-owned company that treated him as one of their own.

Bill had a love for movies, music, and attending southern gospel music concerts. Bill was a lifelong Chicago Cubs fan and was grateful for a World Series Championship in his lifetime. His greatest joy was his grandchildren – watching their sporting events, swimming with them, teaching them new skills, telling them stories, and taking them on Disney World vacations. Bill’s relationship with Jesus Christ and love for the Church will serve as his legacy.

A celebration of life service will be held at 2:00 p.m., Friday, February 22, followed by visitation from 3:00-5:00 p.m. at Bethel Baptist Church, 1610 South State Street, Greenfield, Indiana 46140.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given to the church.
