The son of Vessie E. & Esther A. (Beals) Rhone, Jack was born on April 26, 1934 in Des Moines. On August 15, 1954, he was united in marriage to Marilyn J. Thompson at the Methodist Church in Colfax. Jack worked for the State of Iowa in Maintenance for 20 + years. He was a 60+ year member of the Colfax United Methodist Church, active in 4H, the Grange, Kiwanis, the Colfax Historical Society and the Blue Grass Association (SPBGMA). A life time resident of Colfax, Jack enjoyed wood carving, making jewelry, camping, fishing, mushroom hunting and blue grass music. His family was the most important thing in his life. He especially enjoyed attending all of his kids, grand kids and great grandkids sports events, even though he was not a sports fan.
Those left to honor his memory include his wife, Marilyn; his children, Robert & Nancy (Stevens) Rhone, Donna & Jon Harvey, Joyce & Mike Castell, and Patti & LeRoy Hanna; grandchildren, Gina &Justin Teed, Jeremy & Chrystal (Parks) Rhone, Dave & Jeannie (Smith) Rhone, Faye Davis, Brandon Davis, Aaron & Jessica (Harvey) Post and Jonathan Harvey; 15 great grandchildren, two sisters-in-law, Janet (John) Gunsaulus and Donna Thompson. Preceding Jack in death were his parents, parents-in-law, and a brother-in-law, Ron Thompson.

My condolences to the family for the dear loss of Jack. May you find the strength and peace of mind God can provide to carry you through this difficult time. -Philippians 4:6,7.

Nancy Peace on Nov 7, 2018

As a friend of Donna Rhone Harvey, I have had the opportunity to hear about the life of Jack. Donna has shared the wonderful experiences of growing up in a fun loving, hard working, compassionate family.
Donna's professionalism and friendship reflects growing up in a household with guidance, support, and one providing the foundation for setting goals for a productive future. The greatest compliment parents can receive is to have successful children that make positive contributions to the lives of other individuals. Donna is an example of such contributions on the local, state, and federal levels
.Even though having a loved one departing this life creates a void in our everyday living, Jack left many wonderful memories for those who knew and loved him. His interest in and joy he experienced from attending sports events, family gatherings and camping, and the many contributions he made to the community leaves a legacy that exemplifies a life well lived.
