1927 - 2018 Obituary Condolences
JACK L. GLEASON July 1, 1927 ~ May 24, 2018 Jack L. Gleason, 90, passed away on May 24, 2018, at Willow Springs Dementia Care Facility in Redding. He was born in Pasadena, Ca. on July 1, 1927. His father later moved them to El Monte, Ca. where Jack attended El Monte High School. Jack joined the United States Navy on June 14, 1945. He was placed on Naval Reserves in 1946 and Honorably Discharged in 1954. Jack is pre-deceased by his father, Lou, and brother, Mike. He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Charliene, his children; Mike, Leonard, Cindy, Lewis, and Patrick. He had 11 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. "Dad's" hobby was his garage and his tools. He would tinker, fix, and invent things no one else could. He loved his 1972 orange Chevy pickup, and couldn't wait for summer vacation to get it out on the Mojave Desert on the way to Bishop. Dad loved his family more than anything for they were his true best friends. He loved to fish, barbecue, and sip coffee and tell stories. Jack and Charliene were residents of the north state after moving up from Southern California in 1991. They lived in Red Bluff for twenty years. A private service is planned next week.
