Jack Clasbey Easley
No one expected that Jack Clasbey Easley’s earthly work would be completed early in the morning of May 1st, 2003 while visiting his daughter and son-in-law Joyce and Howard Gwirtz of Crestline, Ohio.
Jack’s 88 years, which began July 9th of 1914 in Wiley, Colorado, were full of life. As a graduate of East High School in Kansas City, Missouri, he married the love of his life, Dorothy Jane, on January 1st of 1934, who survives. Over their almost 70 years of love, God granted them personally 4 children: Richard Easley of San Jose, CA, Joyce (Howard) Gwirtz of Crestline, Ohio, Carol (Linn) Carothers of Castaic, CA and Fred Easley who is deceased. 7 grandchildren: Jackie Evans, Curtis Easley, Elizabeth Quaintance, Tim, Josh, Hudson and Andrew Carothers; and 5 great grandchildren: Rebecca Noblit, Stacy Wallace, Myra Quaintance, Ryan Easley and Michael Quaintance. His parents, Harry Lightfoot and Myra Ann (Clasbey) Easley along with a brother Wallace, preceded him in death.
Jack was the owner and operator of AllCraft Shade and Blinds Co. in Van Nuys, California for over 50 years. But Jack’s life was more than just manufacturing things, he was more concerned in building people – and his company was just a bridge to many relationships.
Jack loved Jesus Christ and wanted everyone to know His Lord and Savior. He spent his life on people through his membership and contribution to many lives in many churches like Van Nuys 1st Baptist, Sepulveda Baptist, Valley View Baptist, Placerita Baptist, and his present church of 1st Baptist of Castaic. He sacrificially gave of himself along with his wife Dorothy, to men and women in the Christian Business Men’s Association, The Gideon’s International and in visiting hurting men in prisons and jails. Everywhere he went, he was best known for wanting people to know and love His Savior who died and rose again and gave him the gift of eternal life. He was a leader for many years with the Boy Scouts of America.
Friends may call on Saturday, May 10, 2003 from 10-11 AM at the Turner Funeral Home, 168 West Main Street, Shelby where funeral services will be conducted at 11 AM by Jack’s son-in-law, Dr. Linn Carothers. Memorial contributions may be made to Gideon’s International, directly or through the funeral home. Burial will be in Sandusky Township Cemetery, Crawford County, Ohio.
