On Tuesday, June 8, 2021, Jack Owen Ganders, Jr. passed away at home at the age of 62.
Born in Dallas, TX and raised between Corpus Christi, TX and Amarillo, TX, Jack eventually found his way to Portland, TN where he spent several years as a maintenance man for Flying J in Franklin, KY and where he met his wife, Candace. Jack was an avid fisherman, a cut-throat Spades player, and a lover of nature and animals, especially his dogs.
Jack was preceded in death by his father, Jack Sr., mother, Frances, as well as a younger brother, Robert.
He is survived by his wife of 14 years, Candace, his brothers, Buddy of Lebanon, TN, and Monroe of Amarillo, TX. He is also survived by a special daughter, Jacqueline of Perkins, OK, and many nieces and nephews that held a special place in his heart.
