Jack Warren Pace, 74. passed away peacefully in his home on August 5th, 2017 after a short battle with cancer.

He was born January 9th, 1943 in Bellingham, WA to John and Lotty Pace. 

Jack served in the Army from 1961-1987. He was stationed in Germany and Korea, and served in the Vietnam War. He retired as a W-4 Chief Warrant officer. He learned many things from his time in the service and he carried them with him through life.

He married his wife, Timi on May 24, 1991. They shared a deep love and were a true testament to marriage. They raised two girls together. He was a wonderful father and husband. He gave them so much love and laughter. He cherished each and every one of his grandchildren. He went to breakfast every Saturday with his oldest and dearest friend , his brother Paul. Jack worked for the Powers' family for the last 28 years. He loved his job and everyone that worked there. He faithfully served at NW Baptist church for 23 years in the youth group and was an Awana commander for 10 years. He belonged to the Elks club in Bellingham. He enjoyed working in his yard, Vintage Cars and trucks, his cats and spending time with his family.

There are no words to describe what a magnificent man he was, He was such a force in this life and inspired so many by his love and service for the Lord. He is greatly missed.

On rare and special occasions, God brings people into your life who feel like home and family from the moment you meet them and Jack, you, and your beautiful girls are those kind of people.  Prayers for peace and comfort in the midst of the storm.  Love....

I hope you know how deeply loved you are. We are heartbroken at the loss of you. You were our strength and rock. Everything I am is because of you. I miss you so much.

When my sister met Jack, she gushed about how much she loved him and how great he was, but I was skeptical. However, over the years, that same gushy stuff continued. She has always spoken of him with love and respect.

 I want to thank you for taking such good care of my sister, Jack. It was clear you devoted yourself to making her happy, as she did to you in return. Thank you for loving her and her daughters, and giving them the life they deserved.

I will miss your kindness, your smile, and your hugs. You give great hugs!

 

Love you,

 Kennetha

Uncle Jack,

I have always thought you were a great guy. You always made Aunt Timi so happy and you were great to Jaime and Jenna. I thought you were so interesting and had such a cool life. I thought you were so nice and were always fun to be around because you were so positive. I will truly miss you.

❤️ I love you all and am sending my deepest condolences to Aunt Timi, Jaime, and Jenna.

Love,

Nichole

I worked with and called on JP for more than 30 years.  I have many memories of him.  He was a good friend that I will miss dearly.  You meet so few people in life with his outstanding abilities and character.  I am proud to have been able to call him a friend.
