Jack Sparrow

John Michael "Jack" Sparrow died December 3, 2015 in Mesa AZ. He was born May 7, 1938 in Renton WA., the eldest son of Nel and Willis Sparrow. Jack lived in Renton until he moved to Mesa in 2003.

A friendly guy, blessed with a 'gift of gab', Jack enjoyed a successful career in the beverage industry. A lifelong member of the Renton Eagles, Jack also belonged to the Renton Lions Club and the Renton 21 Club. He was an avid sports fan, a self described crossword expert and a consummate beer drinker. Those who knew Jack, know that he did it 'his way'.

Jack is survived by his wife, Cindy, sons, Bill, Michael (Elle) and Patrick, four grandchildren, his brother Bill (Karen) and former wife, Nancy. Jack will also be missed by his extended family and friends, especially his cousin, Larry, and his friend, Matt. Memorials to the Renton 21 Club, a celebration of Jack's life will be held in January.

One of the true originals, I am so grateful that he was my Dad. I have so many wonderful memories that it would take writing a novel to document them all here. His family and extended family were everything to Dad, and he lived life to the fullest. I will always have him and the memories in my heart. I look forward to sharing stories and remembrances with friends and family at Jack's Memorial.

I grew up with Jack and have many, many memories of him. He was always friendly and had a smile on his face. After we were grown up, Jack still had a close connection to my family. I especially remember the spirit of "family" during the holidays. Those were wonderful times of sharing, caring and loving. You will be missed Jack.

I will never forget you My Jackie. You were so good to me when I was a little girl and when I got older you protected me. Our last conversation was good & we laughed alot. My heart aches that you are gone. I love you. Your Col.

JACK WAS A GREAT DAD AND ALWAYS PROVIDED A WONDERFUL HOME FOR US AND LOTS OF HAPPY TIMES WITH HIS WONDERFUL FAMILY. I AM SO GRATEFUL THAT THROUGH HIM I WAS INTRODUCED TO MUCH LOVE, LOTS OF LAUGHTER AND A FAMILY THAT WAS AND IS STILL DEAR TO MY HEART. NOT MANY PEOPLE ARE BLESSED WITH A MOTHER LIKE NELLE,AN AUNT LIKE AUNTIE TIL AND STOIC GRANDPARENTS LIKE GRANDMA AND GRANDPA SPARROW. THERE WERE MANY MOMENTS OF TRUE LOVE AND HIGH SPIRITEDNESS AND NO ONE CAN FORGET THE MUSHROOM TRIPS. I THANK HIM FOR GIVING ME ALL THESE GIFTS
