Jack Edward Loman, age 80, died peacefully on Monday, April 17, 2023. Jack is survived by his wife of 54 years, Sandra, his daughter, Emily, and grandson, Bernard. Also survived by, his sister, Cathy Wise, and her daughters, Melissa Filkin and Heidi Gogate; his brother, Gary Loman, his daughter, Kimberly, and sons, Robert and Alex; his sister-in-law, Sharon Bronaugh, her son, Eric Bronaugh, and her daughter, Amy Lashbrooke; and special cousins, Jeanne Klaiber and Linda Mays. He is further survived by friends, and his neighbors on Waban Hill, Madison, WI, where he lived for fifty years.
Jack graduated from Western Michigan University and completed a Master’s Degree from Wayne State University and the University of Michigan. He worked in the field of Aging for the State of Colorado and the State of Wisconsin, and as a human services training officer, retiring in 2002. He also worked as a consultant in training for several years after his retirement.
When not working, Jack filled his life with activities ranging from photography to woodworking to traveling. He spent the last twenty-five years of his life traveling to Europe, which he loved to talk about. Watching films and television and listening to music also occupied his time, along with creating a stereo system and a home theater for those pursuits. His activities all involved tools, motors, engines, and electronic equipment; about which his wife and friends often teased him. After his death Sandra found five stereo speakers in a storage area, in addition to the nine speakers in the house.
Friends and family have used the following words to describe Jack: “unique, a character, nice, his energy and smile, our silly adventurous cousin, the “mayor” of Waban Hill, a great guy and a dear friend, his wisdom and sense of humor, a wonderful man, a kind and joyful man, a special husband and father, his silly sense of humor”. Friends and family have all said how much they liked knowing Jack and sharing time with him.
His love of movies and television helped sustain him as he endured two years of a horrible illness, Progressive Supranuclear Palsy. Visits from friends and family were the other activity that sustained him, as well as the superb hospice care from Agrace. Throughout his illness, Jack gifted us with his amazing smile and his silly sense of humor. We all loved coaxing his smiles every time we visited.
We will celebrate Jack’s life on July 29, 2023, with a gathering at his home in Madison, WI. Jack made much of the furniture in the house, as well as doing the woodwork, so this is a fitting location for honoring his life. If you wish to make a donation in honor of Jack, please consider Agrace Hospice Care or Cure PSP (a national organization focused on the disease that took Jack’s life).
