Scottsdale - Jack S. Clubb, 95, died peacefully on Thursday, August 21, 2014, at Vi at Grayhawk with his wife, Bea, by his side. Jack was born July 6, 1919, in Wallace, Idaho, as the second son of Stalker and Mae Clubb. Jack grew up in Mullan, Idaho, and attended California Polytechnical College and the University of Idaho. His education was interrupted when he was drafted by the Army in 1941. He served four years overseas in the Corp of Engineers and continued his service through the Army Reserves, retiring in 1970 as Assistant Commandant of the Fort Belvoir Engineer School. In the late 40s, he and his brother, Bob, bought a farm in western Montana. Some of Jack's fondest memories and best stories were from those years of farm ownership. Jack graduated from the University of Montana in 1952 and that same year he married Beatrice Lundblad in Circle, Montana. They made their home in Portland, Oregon, where Jack worked for Bonneville Power until his retirement in 1977. He worked primarily in the development of PowerSystem Automated Control equipment procedures in the Pacific Northwest. After retirement, Jack and Bea then moved to Scottsdale. There he volunteered for many organizations: SCORE (Service Corps of Retired Executives), AARP tax consulting, Regional Veterans Affairs, Veterans of Foreign Wars and served on many boards/committees at Vi. Jack and Bea traveled the world and were most happy during those adventures whether it was an African Safari, a cruise on the Mediterranean or visiting Bea's farm in eastern Montana. He is survived by Bea, his wife of 62 years; his brother Bob (Shirley) of Bonner, Montana; nieces Linda (Don) Barba of Missoula, Montana, and Betty (Ed) Howland of Meridian, Idaho; nephews Gary Clubb of Thompson Falls, Montana, Wayne (Ann) Clubb of Vancouver, Washington, Jerry Clubb of Chandler, Arizona, and Roger (Carol) Clubb of Boise, Idaho. Jack was preceded in death by his parents and oldest brother Fred. The family would like to extend heartfelt thanks to the extraordinary staff at Vi, the members of Pinnacle Peak Presbyterian Church and, especially, Elizabeth Curran for all their help, support and kindness. A celebration of Jack's life is planned at Vi at Grayhawk, 7501 East Thompson Peak Parkway, Scottsdale, Arizona, on September 22, at 4 p.m. Jack's ashes will be interred in Montana.
