Jack Milo Fillman, was called back home to the Lord on Sunday, 29th of April 2012.|
Jack was a native of St. Petersburg, Pennsylvania, and a Petroleum Engineering graduate from Penn State University. He retired from Shell Oil Company, where he spent time in Cuba, The Hague, Netherlands, Louisiana, New York, California, and finally in Houston, serving in such positions ranging from field engineer to heading the company's data processing department.
Jack is survived by his loving wife, Catheryne, who came into his life at one of its lowest points, and has been his shining light ever since.
Jack also leaves behind his son, Dr. Stephen Fillman and his wife, LeeAnn of the Woodlands; grandchildren, Mathew and his wife Cassie Fillman; and great grandson, Jackson all of Austin; granddaughter, Ali Fillman Adams and her husband, Aaron, and grandson, Lane all of the Woodlands; and his youngest son, Robert and his wife, Donna who now live in Indianapolis, Indiana.
"And the sons become the fathers and their daughters will be wives
As the torch is passed hand to hand
And we struggle through our lives
Though the generations wander, the lineage survives
And all of us, from dust to dust, we all become forefathers by and by
By and by..."
He will be missed dearly by all.
The memorial service is to be conducted at eleven o'clock in the morning on Friday, the 4th of May, in the Jasek Chapel of Geo. H. Lewis & Sons, 1010 Bering Drive in Houston, where the Rev. Charles H. Thompson, Executive Pastor of First United Methodist Church, is to officiate.
In lieu of customary remembrances, the family requests that contirbutions in Jack's name be directed to the Renovation Fund of First United Methodist Church, 1320 Main St., Houston, TX, 77002.
