Honor Mission
Jack Park, Veteran
USA – WWII
Grand Blanc, Michigan – 07-31-20

ABOUT THE MISSION:

The Family of Jack Park has invited the Patriot Guard Riders to stand in honor of his service to our Country. Jack was born in Flint in August 1923, the seventh of ten children of William and Fern (Edwards) Park. Heeding the call to serve his country and following his brothers Winnie and Fred, Jack enlisted in the United States Army in January 1943. He served in the Pacific Theater of Operations of WWII until his honorable discharge in December 1945. Upon his return, Jack would meet the love of his life, Ardelle K. Bachman. They were happily married for 70 years. Sadly, she preceded him in death in March 2019. Jack loved his family, his cabin on Beaver Lake, fishing, boating, traveling, spending time at casinos and his friends at the donut shop, and watching football, especially the Michigan Wolverines. In recent years, Jack shared many experiences from the war including the last time he saw his brother, Major Winston (Winnie) Park who was reported missing in action in May 1945. He is survived by many nieces, nephews, friends, and caring neighbors.
