Jack was born March 15, 1936 in Alex, OK to James O. and Mildred B. Felkner Fitzpatrick and passed from this life Tuesday, September 8, 2020 in St. Mary’s Regional Hospital.

He attended one year at Oklahoma A & M, now known as Oklahoma State University. American by birth and Christian by the grace of God, Jack was honored to serve both his country and his Almighty God. Entering the U.S. Army in 1958, he served 6 years and was honorably discharged in 1964. He was a member of Bethlehem Baptist Church.
Jack married Anita M. Yarger on February 3, 1961 in Oklahoma City. Jack and Anita had one daughter, Renee, and one son, Curtis. After living in Houston, TX, the family moved to Enid in 1966 where he remained until it was time for him to go to his permanent address in Heaven.
