Our beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend.
Jack James Ruther was born on August 25, 1933 in Clovis, New Mexico. Jack was one of two sons. Jack was a lover of the outdoors and an extremely hard worker.
On May 13, 1989 Jack married who was to be the love of his life, Dee. Jack and Dee, together with Dee’s two children, Danna and Matt, and their spouses and children, formed a tight family. Jack was funny and liked to tell you that you needed to give him a “quarter” for him to lend you something or do something for you. Jack had a love for mules. He enjoyed hunting and camping. He would pack the mules into the backwoods and enjoy the beauty that Colorado offers.
Jack made his living in construction. He was the owner of his own construction company for countless years and has left a legacy of his work throughout Colorado Springs. Jack was a very detailed and well thought out project manager.
Jack was a devout Christian and spent a lot of time serving the Lord within his church and reading the Bible. In his later years, he really enjoyed his coffee dates at McDonalds with, “the boys” and watching westerns on TV.
We know the Jack is spending time “HOME” drinking as much orange pop that he wants, and riding mules through the Promised Land.
A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, June 16, 2018 at Eastborough Church of the Nazarene, 4120 East Pikes Peak Avenue, Colorado Springs, Colorado 80909.
