Frey, Jack William  
Jack William Frey May 14, 1919 - Nov. 9, 2014 Resident of Brentwood Jack William Frey passed away on Sunday evening with family members by his side. Jack was loved by many and was known for his sense of humor and his constant willingness to assist not only those he loved but strangers in need of a helping hand. Jack was born in Oakland, CA and graduated from St. Elizabeth's High School. He volunteered to serve his country during World War II and served honorably in the US Navy. When the war ended, he joined his wife Phyllis, now deceased, to raise his family in San Francisco and then in Brentwood where he resided for 60 years. Jack worked for the Pacific Gas & Electric company for 41 years and retired as the Maintenance Supervisor of the Avon, Oakland Oleum, and Martinez power plants. He served the Brentwood community by being a member of the city's Utility Advisory Committee and the Brentwood Sanitation District's board of directors. In 1966, he was elected to the Brentwood City Council. Jack was an accomplished sailor and was credited with having won countless yachting races on the San Francisco Bay and local Delta waters. "Captain Jack" as he was affectionately called, held captive many an audience when he recounted his sailing adventures. Jack was predeceased by his second wife, Sandra Frey and his son, Michael Frey of Bethel Island. He is now survived by his son Thomas Frey of Manteca and daughters, Patricia Frey of Walnut Creek, Kathleen Fazakerly of Pleasant Hill, Nancy Frey of Santa Monica and Mary Vogt of Quincy, CA. He also leaves seven grandchildren: Malinda Frey of Tacoma, WA, Khara Edler of Ramsey, New Jersey, Julia Flanagan of Grand Cayman Island, Nathan Fazakerly of Sacramento, CA, Amelia Besaw of Grass Valley, and Sarah Vogt and Catherine Vogt of Colorado. He also leaves behind nine great grandchildren. Jack is also survived by his brother, Robert Frey, who currently resides in Alameda, CA. Jack will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. A funeral mass will be held Tuesday, Nov. 18, at 11am, St. Stephen Catholic Church, 1101 Keaveny Ct., Walnut Creek. There will be a visitation and viewing before mass starting at 10:30am. Interment will follow at Queen of Heaven Cemetery in Lafayette. Holy Angels Queen of Heaven (925) 932-0900
