Jack Summey

September 25, 1948 - August 15, 2011

Jack Benjamin Summey, 62, of Hendersonville, died peacefully in his home on Monday, August 15, 2011. Jack’s parents, Albert and Reba Summey, who preceded him in death, left behind thirteen children, of whom eleven are still living.

Jack leaves behind his loving wife of twenty four years, Sandy Summey, his six children, and many much-loved grandchildren.

Jack was a man of great love, compassion and dignity. He served his country in the US Army and provided for his family for over thirty years as a self-employed roofer. Because of his dedication to God, family, and work, Jack will be remembered by all who knew him as an honest, hard-working, and loving man. In the last years of his life, Jack got great fulfillment and joy from volunteering countless hours at Camp Tekoa, doing building projects.

A memorial service will be at 3:00 p.m. Friday, August 19, 2011, in the chapel at Forest Lawn Funeral Home. Reverend James Johnson will officiate. The family will attend the burial at 11:00 a.m. Tuesday at Forest Lawn Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, Jack wished for donations to be made to the building/maintenance fund at Camp Tekoa; or to Four Seasons Compassion for Life, which aided Jack in his last months and eased his journey home.
