John David "Jack" Sebern, 78, passed away Jan. 2, 2014, peacefully at his home. He was a loving husband, father, and grandfather.|
Jack will be remembered for his friendly nature and his love for his grandchildren, many pets, and antique cars. Jack graduated Brownsville High School in 1954 and went onto one of his other great passions, Texas A&M University. There he served in the Corps of Cadets and subsequently served in the U.S. Army.
Jack was employed by Gulf Cold Storage in Brownsville and retired from there after it was sold. He served as a Deacon at the First Presbyterian Church and enjoyed supporting all his children's and grandchildren's activities from swim meets and football games to sponsoring kickball teams and driving carpool. Jack had a heart of service.
Jack is preceded in death by his wife, Jane; his brother, Tom and a sister, Martha.
Jack is survived by his children, Stacey McCord and her husband, Nicholas, Jon "Jay" Sebern, Shari Sebern, and Jeffrey Sebern and his wife Pamela; and his sister-in-law, Margaret Sebern. Jack was blessed with seven grandchildren who will miss him very much, Ryan McCord, Ashton Sebern, Victoria Sebern, Courtney Sebern, Jack Dakota Sebern, Christian Sebern and Shane Sebern.
