Junius W. Black

June 9, 1936 - July 31, 2014

Our Dad and loving husband, Jack Black, passed away the morning of July 31st, after months of failing health. Survived by his wife, Irene; six children: Steve, Tom, Jim, Suzie, Jill & Janeece and twenty grandchildren. He was married in the Los Angeles Temple to his wife and sweetheart of 54 years. They were devoted to each other to the end.

He was the best dad anyone could hope for and an even better Grandpa! He loved being around his children and grandchildren, to serve them, love them and support them in any way he could.

When asked of his greatest accomplishments, he noted his children & grandchildren and his pride for their personal successes. He cherished his memories of being a Scout Master, and was very proud that all of his boys and grandsons of age are Eagle Scouts.
He served an honorable LDS Mission in the Spanish American mission where he learned to speak Spanish fluently, which he used as often as he could. He also served honorably as a Marine and was very patriotic.
We will miss him, but we know he is no longer in pain. We will not be having a funeral, but will be holding a graveside service at Camp Williams, in West Jordan, as per his request.

Irene and family...I was sad to hear of the passing of Jack. I know he will be greatly missed by not only your family, but many friends. I was always fun to have him in class with us. I know his family was his greatest joy. His eyes would light up and an even larger smile would come to his face if any of the family came into the pool to say hello or spend time playing in the water with him. Our thoughts are with you and hope you know our love for each of you.

We will miss seeing Jack at the Club. He was definitely a gentleman and it was always a pleasure to see him coming in. What an example of dedication to living a healthy lifestyle. He will be missed and will always be remembered as a part of our OAC family.
