John “Jack” R. Buckmaster, born November 7, 1928 in Lansing, MI, passed away May 18, 2019. Jack was retired from General Motors; served in the Korean Conflict for 7 years in the Navy. He also had a TV repair business for several years. He enjoyed going to Bass Lake in Pentwater and traveling out west.

Jack is survived by his wife of 62 years, Ada May, daughter-in-law Michelle Buckmaster; granddaughters Lindsey (Ryan) Scott and Chelsey Buckmaster, and a great granddaughter, Nova White.
