Jack A. Husband, 59, joined the angels on Sunday, November 20, 2022.
Born in Plymouth, Indiana the son of David D. and Odette M. Husband.
Jack was the second-generation owner of Husband Exterminators. He derived great enjoyment from working with his clients; ‘they made his day.’ He loved serving his community and making friends along the way.
Some of Jack’s passions were flying his plane, sailing the open seas, traveling the world, enjoying new experiences, and meeting new people. His family will miss the way his face would light up talking about scuba diving, stone crabbing, and playing the stock market. His kindhearted fun-loving nature carried over to others. He never met a stranger.
Jack was known to stop along the road to help turtles safely navigate their way. So, if you see a turtle crossing the road, send Jack a ‘Hi.’
Jack is deeply missed by his mother, Odette: siblings: James (Susan), Kathleen, Christine Kline, Miriam, Joyce (Bradley), and Danielle (Rodney) Johnson, sister-in-law Jan; many nieces and nephews and many friends.
He is preceded in death by his father, brothers John, David Michael, and Dennis, and brother-in-law Paul Kline.
The family will have a private celebration of Jack’s life with no public services.

Jack and I played little league baseball together for several years alternating at third baseand shortstop while growing up in Plymouth. He was a fine friend and a good man. We respected each other and enjoyed each other’s company. Both of us probably over-achieved in life. I am saddened to hear of his demise.
He was “Huzzy” to me and to think of him makes me smile, as his commentary about the nature of life as we experienced it as 12 year olds was precious.
Rest in Peace. Scott

J Faulstich says
Jack was one of my childhood hero’s growing up. He could always make more baskets than I could, he could call “swish” and that it would. His best shot in H-O-R-S-E was between the closelines in my backyard. How did he pull that off? One day, he wanted me to go into his kitchen to see his mom’s new Microwave Oven – I had never seen one before. Proud of his mama, always. Glad to know he traveled the world, experienced cultures, breathed in diversity, embraced nature.
Deborah Lawton says
Our hearts go out in prayers for Jack & his family. We have known Jack a long time & he will be missed. Our sincere condolences.
Alma Lopez -Salgado says
Jack was charming and he knew it. He would stroll into chemistry class late, wink at Sister Irwin (Ancilla
College) made her blush and get away with it. He was also brave to pull my pigtails and get kicked for doing so. God bless Jack. Please Jesus keep him close to you.
Sorry for your loss Mrs. Husband and family.

Kevin Houin says
I am sorry for your loss of Jack at such a young age.
A memory I have always relished is the time in 5th grade when Jack and I took on the rest of the 5th grade guys in football during recess at St. Michael’s School. He was fast so he would take off running and I would throw the ball as far as I could with Jack finding a way to catch the ball. What fun we had together!
I wish I had the chance to tell him this memory myself. Remember to enjoy each day and tell others what you have on your heart.
