Jack Manning Obituary
Jack J. Manning, 82, U.S. Air Force Veteran-Korea, at rest February 28, 2014. Jack was a longtime resident of Clarendon Hills before moving to Burr Ridge in 2010. Born and raised in Janesville, Wisconsin, Jack attended the University of Wisconsin on a basketball scholarship. It was there that he met his future wife, Pat (nee: Hume). In addition to being a member of Sigma Chi Fraternity, he was a member of ROTC. Upon graduation, with a degree in economics, Jack fulfilled his three year obligation to the U.S. Air Force. After being honorably discharged, Jack pursued a successful business career in the industrial gas industry where he became Regional Vice President of Airco Industrial Gases. After a 35 year tenure with Airco and subsequently five years with Pressed Steel Tank as VP of Sales & Marketing, Jack retired to pursue "the perfect golf swing". Jack was a member of Ruth Lake Country Club for 47 years and former member of Butler National for 15 years. Beyond his passion for golf, Jack was a Director of the Western Golf Association where he devoted time and effort to the Evans Scholarship Program. Jack and Pat spent their winters at Sun City Grand in Surprise, Arizona. Jack is survived by his beloved wife of 58 years, Pat. Loving father of Christopher J. Manning and Linda (Thomas) Carruthers. Devoted grandfather of Jessica Carruthers. Dear half-brother Eric (Sandra) Steffes. A Memorial Service in celebration and Thanksgiving will be held on Friday May 16, 2014, 11:00 am at the Presbyterian Church of Western Springs 5250 S. Wolf Road, Western Springs, IL 60558.
