1921 - 2014 Obituary Condolences
Jack B. Fawcett Obituary
Jack B. Fawcett passed away peacefully in Greeley on March 18, 2014.
Beloved father of Pamela, Karen, Joel and Larry, he is also survived by two grandchildren, Andrea and Max and one great-grandaughter, Savannah.
Jack was preceded by Ruth Ann, his wife of 62 years.
Born November 26, 1921, in Brush, CO, Jack had a rich and diverse life as a teacher and Foreign Service Officer. He also served honorably in WWII as lead bombardier in a B-17 in the European Theater. He served in the 360th Bomb Squad, 303rd Bomb Group of the 8th Airforce (Army/Aircorps).
He not only flew the mandatory 25 missions but volunteered for another five! He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross twice!  
Jack had a deep appreciation and love of language. He taught us early on about the importance of literature and reading as a bird's eye view into different cultures. He had a wonderful sense of humor and loved "play on words". He always enjoyed the richness of the English vocabulary. He will be deeply missed by all that loved and knew him.
The family wishes to extend their appreciation to the entire staff at Grace Pointe for their compassionate care of Jack.
Family and friends are invited to military honors burial Monday, March 24, 2014, at 1 p.m. at the Brush, CO cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Jack's memory to the Northern Colorado Honor Flight in care of Allnutt Funeral Service.
Friends may view the online obituary and send condolences at www.allnutt.com.
