John R. “Jack” McGill
March 16, 1928 – November 30, 2020
Jack (92), Dad, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend went to join his wife of nearly 70 years, Marie, in heaven on November 30th, 2020. He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Ruth McGill, sister, Marilyn Kohlbeck (Joe). He is survived by sons: John and Alea McGill, Joe and Caye McGill and Steve and Jodi McGill; three granddaughters: Marla, Lauren Hayes (Phil), and Liza; brothers, Dave (Bernie) and Paul (Arhild).
We will forever remember his engaging smile, gentle demeanor, and “Greatest Generation” wisdom. He served his country proudly, joining the Army at age 17, and was stationed in Japan after the end of WWII.
A small, private family viewing and military graveside service will be held on December 19, 2020, exactly eleven (11) years after Marie’s burial at Resurrection Cemetery in Omaha. A Celebratory Catholic Mass and luncheon will be held at a later date in 2021 when all can gather safely.
Memorials are suggested to Mary Our Queen Catholic School.
