Jack Kingery passed away peacefully on July 29, 2019 surrounded by his children after a brief battle with thyroid cancer.  He was born on January 18, 1937 to Edwin and Pete Kingery in Des Moines, Iowa. Jack is survived by his brother William and his wife Lee Anne, daughter Jill and her husband John, son John and his wife Traci, and son Jeff, granddaughter Jordan and her husband Addison and their daughter Nova, grandsons Grant, Corydon, Alex, and Jack.

Jack attended Iowa State University where he met Patricia, his wife of 56 years.  After graduation he joined Johns-Manville in Chicago.   Shortly after, he attended Harvard Business School where he graduated with distinction in 1966 then returned to JM until 1986. In 1987 he acquired Arcturus Skylights and served as CEO until 2000.

Jack was an avid sports fan. He cheered on his children and grandchildren in their games and closely followed the Rockies, Broncos, and Avalanche.  In retirement he enjoyed traveling with Pat, and helping others through his church, Love INC, and through his neighborhood HOA groups.

  1. Jack was a great man and will be missed by many of those that knew him here at JM. The news of his passing has taken many of our QCC members by surprise. Please know that you all are in our thoughts and prayers.

  2. Jack was a great boss but a better family man. He was always kind to his associates.

    He will be missed. My sympathies to his family.

    May he rest in the peace of the Lord.

  3. Our deepest sympathy. Jack was a good man and a wonderful friend since college. He will be missed. God’s Peace. Jerry and Karen Kolschowsky

  4. It was a pleasure working with both Pat and Jack at CreekSide Garden Center and Nursery. After Pat passed away Jack kept her sweet memory by making sure her favorite flowers were planted in her flower boxes – exactly the way she would have them planted. Thank you for allowing me to serve you, Jack! “May flowers always line your path.” Irish Blessing

    With my thoughts and prayers,
