Jack T. LaBounty, 76, Forest Hill, Calif., died Saturday, April 14, 2007, in the Veteran's Home in Yountsville, Calif.
Jack was born July 9, 1930, in Superior to George and Helen "Babe" (McLeod) LaBounty. He attended school in Spooner and grew up on his parent's resort, Frog's Cabins, on Spooner Lake.
After school, he joined the Marine Corps and served in the Korean War. He moved to southern California, where he remained for most of his life. He had many interesting jobs including owning and operating a trucking business in the Los Angeles area he named "Our Own Trucking."
Jack's hobbies were buying and selling merchandise at yard sales and flea markets.
Jack was a kind, loving and generous man who loved his family dearly. He loved to talk and many times would have the whole family laughing while they listened to his crazy stories of growing up in Spooner and his adventures in California. He had a deep love for northern Wisconsin and for many, many years made a yearly trip to Superior in the summer to visit his brother, cousins, and nieces and nephews. It is safe to say everyone who met Jack LaBounty loved him.
He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother, Richard George LaBounty.
He will be sadly missed by his wife, Dora, Forest Hill; his daughter, Jacqueline (Rick) Yates, Auburn, Calif.; step-children, Charlie Heinzen, Montana, Sharon Burke, New Mexico, Kathy Greenly, California and Larry Heinzen, California; his very special granddaughter, LaBree Yates, and her fiance, Jeremy McCollam, of Forest Hill. In addition he leaves behind a brother, Bill LaBounty, Superior, and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Memorial services will be held in Forest Hill on Sunday and at the Veteran's Home Memorial Chapel in Yountsville, Calif., on May 10.
