Jack Harold Saffell

Jack Harold Saffell, 88, of Carson, CA, passed away on May 13, 2013. He was born in Ashton, Idaho on November 21, 1924 to Mable C. Silvey and Charles O. Saffell. Jack was a retiree from the ILWU Local 63. He started with ILWU in 1955 as a longshoreman with Local 13 and was one of the last "Old-timers" that worked strictly out of the "Hall". He retired in 1988 after his transfer earlier to Local 63. He was truly a saint to all of us and will be greatly missed. Jack served his country during WWII, reaching the rank of sergeant with the Army. Always "in the bleachers" for his boys, he was such an inspiration to us all. His quiet smile and great wit will be missed by all that he touched. He is survived by his loving wife of 60 years, Alice E. Saffell; son, Jack C. Saffell (Danielle), Ray E. Saffell (Carrie) and Ron M. Saffell (Laureen); 11 grandchildren; and 5-great-grandchildren. Respectfully there will be a private service. Please sign the guestbook
