Jack "Bud" Brittle went to be with the Lord on April 13, 2011 when he passed away at Providence Medical Center of Portland, Oregon. Jack was born February 16, 1936 in Quapaw, Oklahoma and was 75 at the time of his passing.
A service of honor is planned for 11 a.m., Tuesday, April 19, 2011 at River of Life Assembly of God Church (979 Tucker Road, Hood River, Oregon). Pastor Terry Abbott will officiate and military rites will be performed by the Oregon Honors Team.
He loved and lived life to the fullest. His favorite things to do were golfing. daily except when it was snowing. He also enjoyed fishing and camping with all of the family. When the children were young he made sure that faith, church and family were an important role in their lives.
Jack served three years in the United States Army. He worked as a fabricator/welder for the Army Corp of Engineers and retired from The Bonneville Dam in 1994. He was extremely crafty and there wasn't anything he couldn't make or fix. if anyone needed something fixed they would call him and he would gladly work on it. He was also the barber for all the grandsons. He enjoyed playing Mexican Train Dominoes and would always tease and joke with the grandchildren and family.
Jack is survived and will be dearly missed by his wife of nearly 52 years, Virginia Brittle of their Hood River home; son, Jeff and wife, Pam; daughter, Kim Swafford and husband, Aaron; grandchildren, Shaiyan, Ciena, Jerimiah, Josh, Kelsie, Kylie, Greg and Steven; brothers, Jerry Brittle and wife, Peggy and Rex Brittle and wife, Lois; sister, Opal Tracey and husband, Ronnie and Pat Blevins.
