March 6, 1929 - October 12, 2015 Howard and Ida Remington, along with siblings Merle and Ferne, welcomed Jack on March 6th, 1929 in Los Angeles California.
On October 12th, 2015 Jack passed peacefully in his sleep in Oxnard, California.
In 1933 and 1934 Jack was a child actor in "Our Gang" and "Little Rascal" movies and shorts. He attended Huntington Park High School 1943-1946 and met his best friend and future wife Clista.
In 1946 he enlisted in the U.S. Navy where he proudly served on LST 855. He was awarded medals for his time in China during the takeover. His scrapbooks of his "Pacific Tours" revealed his dedication. In 1949 he was Honorably Discharged and continued his contact with his shipmates by attending many reunions across the United States with LST and Navy associations in California and Arizona.
In 1951 Jack and Clista were married in San Gabriel and had 47 wonderful years together until her passing in 1998. In 1960 they welcomed their son Bruce and in July 1964 moved to West Covina.
Jack worked for the Los Angeles Times as a pressman and retired as a tension man in 1989. Jack and Clista retired to Sun City Vistoso in Oro Valley, Arizona and continued their love of traveling. They visited many states across the U.S., Canada, Mexico, South America and many islands in the South Pacific. Jack enjoyed Auto Racing and attended many Indy 500, Nascar and Sprint Car races. He also loved Boat Racing and participated in many RT Long Beach-Catalina races. He enjoyed water and snow skiing, Raiders football games, Dodger Baseball games, Cribbage, BBQ's and time spent with family and friends.
Jack is survived by his son Bruce, daughter-in-law Cynthia, grandchildren Kyle (Holly), Corey and Shelby, his Navy buddy Bill, niece Pat and many friends. Our deepest gratitude goes out to Bella Nova Villa and Pro Care Hospice for taking great care of Jack in his final days.
His battle with Alzheimer's is over and his soul is at peace. Dad, there is no more pain and confusion. You now are with Mom, your family and friends. Until we meet again.
