Jack Norris Segler, 92, passed away on July 28, 2014 after an extended illness.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Helen & Norris Segler and his brother Paul.

He is survived by his wife, Patricia Anne Segler, son Randy and his wife, Ann, of Panama City, son Mike and his wife, Shyla, of Marietta, Georgia, daughter, Kimberly of Jacksonville, Florida, and four grandchildren, Bryce & Carson of Panama City, and Matthew & Ashlyn of Marietta, Georgia.

He was born July 6, 1922 in Valdosta, Georgia and grew up in Brunswick and Albany, Georgia. He served in the US Army from 1942-1946 and resided in Panama City since 1946. He opened J&P Transfer & Storage Co. November 1, 1946 which evolved into J&P Self Service Storage. He was a past President of the Jaycees.

Jack was a gentle and kind man dedicated to his family. He loved woodworking, and always had a vegetable garden. His passions have been passed along to his children and grandchildren who have benefited from his knowledge about these and many other topics. He always had at least one dog and spoiled generations of pets. One of his favorite things was to make butter toast for the dogs (once to the disappointment of a human house guest who assumed the toast was for them). Friends expressed the desire to "come back in their next life as one of Jack Segler's dogs". Jack was an early "Conservationist" and accumulated an amazing collection of things he "might need one day". To his last day he maintained his marvelous wry sense of humor slipping in clever lines when least expected.

Funeral services will be held on Friday at 11 a.m. in the Wilson Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Steve Rascoe officiating. The family will receive friends at the funeral home on Friday from 10-11 a.m. prior to the service. Interment will follow in the Evergreen Memorial Gardens.
