Jack Titus, passed on to be with the Lord on Saturday morning, July 3rd, 2021 at the age of 83. He passed peacefully in his sleep. He suffered from systolic congestive heart failure and coronary artery disease.
He was born to Robert and Phyllis Titus on 2-27-1938, the oldest with two younger siblings. His brother Tom and sister Jane both passed on due to heart disease. He grew up in Johnson, Vt.
He is survived by his wife, Judith, 7 children, 18 grandchildren, 7 great grandchildren, and baby Reed, due Aug. 10. Granddaughter, Sammy, preceded him in death.
Jack and Judith would have celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this year on Dec. 30th. One of the things they always did was dance in their living room. Jack was a fantastic dancer, knew how to lead and make Judith look good. They both loved dancing together. He promised Judith he would stick around for that, but God had bigger plans.
Jack was a people person, he loved everybody and everybody loved him. He could start up a conversation anytime, anywhere, under any conditions. He traveled the neighborhood in his golf cart, stopping and talking with people. One neighbor told Judith he was the first person to welcome his family into the neighborhood. He wanted to help everybody.
He loved good food and spirts and was an excellent cook.
Jack spent two years in the navy and loved every minute of it. He loved the water. He loved traveling, fishing, boating, golfing, camping, reading, writing poetry, music (especially jazz), dancing…He loved life.
He would sit down at a piano anywhere and just start playing. He couldn’t read music, but played by ear and loved to compose. He was a man of many talents.
In his younger years he read meters, sold life insurance, owned a restaurant; he loved the restaurant business and often talked about doing it again. As time went on, he interviewed with a company out in California called Kliklok, thinking he was going to be selling clocks, but it turned out it was a packaging machinery company which was the beginning of his career as a food packaging consultant, eventually owning his own business, Cow Packaging. He became one of the best food packaging consultants in the industry and was a mentor to many, always willing to help others.
He was a great supporter of Judith and Jacquelynne’s ministry, The Voice of the Martyrs. He spoke up opening many speaking opportunities for them, lugged the displays, and drove the ‘Jesus bus’ to get them wherever they needed to go.
His faith in God was strong, and he loved attending church. He spoke out about the Lord at every opportunity and invited many to attend church. He continued to attend church through his suffering until the very last when he could no more.
He was a wonderful husband and father, always there ready to do whatever the need was. He definitely fit the saying, “if you need something done, give it to a busy man.”
He was a very neat man, always picking up after himself and always on time no matter where he was going including travels to other states and countries.
He is going to be dearly missed by his loving family, his many friends, his business associates and all who knew him.
