GUYTON - Jack E. Cooley, 84, passed away Jan. 13, 2019, at his residence.
The Alabama/Florida native came to Savannah as a young Air Force airman. He was in the Air Force when he met and married the love of his life, "Bob." They spent more than 61 years happily married, living in the Savannah area.
He served as an Allstate agent and retired after 35 years. He was most recently a member of First Baptist Church of Rincon and formerly a member and deacon of Southside Baptist Church of Savannah.

His favorite activities involved spending time with his family. He enjoyed camping, boating, bowling, riding motorcycles and playing numerous games with family and friends. He was super competitive, but always with a joyous spirit.
