Daggett, Jack D., went home to be with the Lord on January 18, 2013. |
Born June 23, 1926, raised in Long Beach, California by parents, Charles and Grace Daggett. He was a wonderful brother to seven sisters and three brothers, all of whom preceded him in death.
Jack enlisted in the Navy and served in World War II. Jack married Carolyn Larson. Together they had three children, Richard (Pam), Debra (Jerry) and Donald. He had eight grandchildren, Michael, Erica, Robert, Jonathan, Carla, Jason, Matthew and Judah. Jack was a great-grandfather to Tori, Shawnee, Sierra, Zachary, Dylan, Madison, Jack, Kaylyn, River, Curran and Mason. He was excited to become a great-great-grandfather to Camiin 2012.
Jack was a master brick and stone mason. He began his career alongside his father, Charles in the Long Beach area. Jack moved his family to the high desert in 1958, where he crafted many works of art out of brick. He was so proud to have created the business Daggett & Daggett Masonry in San Juan Capistrano, with his son Don. His final years were spent creating the beautiful masonry that can be seen at Sunset Hills Memorial Park and the home of Chris Hitt, where a plaque in his honor was placed at the entry.
Our family was blessed to have the most wonderful man for a father and grandfather. Jack was a best friend and mentor to many people. His unconditional love, care, sharp wit and teasing will be missed. We loved him so much and his passing leaves a very huge hole in our hearts and emptiness in our lives. Aloha, Dad.
