Jack Carter Russell, 81, of Rocky Point passed from his earthly life on Wednesday, March 7, 2018 at The Laurels of Pender.

Jack was retired after working as a telephone installer for 30 years, having worked for Western-Electric, AT&T, and Bell South.

Jack was a loving husband and devoted daddy, granddaddy, brother and friend. He had a love for music and enjoyed singing in the church choir. In years past, he coached soft ball games and served as umpire. Later in life fishing was high on Jack’s list of fun things to do. Cherished memories of Jack will remain in our hearts.
