Obituary

Jack Michael Jonon, age 86, originally from Rosebud, Texas, passed away on Wednesday, July 25, 2018. Jack loved sports and was an athlete his entire life. He was the quarterback for the Rosebud High School football team and played for the team when the Black Panthers won district title in 1949. He rode his bike everyday at least 10 miles and he also loved playing tennis.

Jack, a veteran of the Korean War, served in the Navy and was stationed in Guam. He is an alum of Southern Methodist University.

Lovingly known as Daddy, Dad, Papis, and Tata, he will be greatly missed by his loving daughters Sylvia, Frances, Denise, Diane, and Margaret and granddaughters Elena and Julia who will keep him in their hearts forever.

Jack was the most wonderful, loving and hilarious father and the girls have the best memories of all the time he devoted to them with camping trips to national and state parks everywhere. He taught his daughters how to throw a football, ride bikes, fish, do string tricks, have a sense of humor, and how to be open and kind to everyone. All who met Jack loved him. He loved old movies, a good meal, riding his bike, and reading.

Jack is survived by spouse Raquel, daughter Sylvia Jonon and husband Eddie Stout and granddaughter Elena Jonon Stout, daughter Frances Jonon and husband Mike Castro and granddaughter Julia Jonon Castro, daughter Denise Jonon and husband Den Giles, daughter Diane Jonon, and daughter Margaret Jonon Buford and husband Robert Buford.

Papis we love you forever and know that we will all be together again someday.

A celebration of life will be held at 2:00 p.m., Thursday, August 2, 2018, at the Weed-Corley-Fish Funeral Home, 3125 North Lamar Boulevard, Austin, Texas 78705.
