Gregory (Greg) Worth Jackson, 67, Milford, left this earthly life April 10, to begin his eternal heavenly life with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Greg was born June 1, 1950, to Worth and Betty Jackson of Milford. He graduated from Milford High School in 1968 and Purdue University with a degree in agricultural engineering in 1973.
On June 20, 1975, he married the love of his life, Virginia Nell Jackson.
Immediately following his college graduation, he was employed by International Harvester and Farm Fans before returning to Milford to run the family farm. Farming was much more than an occupation for Greg. It was a way of life and he did it well.
Greg was an active member of Wawasee Community Bible Church and was involved in music worship and teaching Sunday school during his years of membership.
Greg was also an avid Purdue University fan, rarely missing a basketball or football game. He was a lover of southern gospel music, and in recent years enjoyed learning ballroom dancing.
Always with a book in his hand, he loved a lifetime of learning about history, the foundation of our country and anything else he could get his hands on.
Gregory is survived by his wife, Nell, Milford; son, Eric (Amanda), Milford; daughter, Rachel (Matthew) Welte, Milford; son, Mark (Wency), Warsaw; his mother, Betty Witman, Milford; granddaughters Kaitlynn, Emma and Madison Jackson. He is also survived by his brother, Stuart Jackson; sisters, Sherrie Plummer and Maureen Kuhns; and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his father, Worth Jackson, in 1973.
A memorial service will take place at Wawasee Community Bible Church, 2035 E. 1300 North, Milford, at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 14. Visitation will follow immediately until 4 p.m.
Memorial contributions may be made to Answers in Genesis, P.O. Box 510, Hebron, KY, 41048 or to Wawasee Community Bible Church, 2035 E. 1300 North, Milford, IN, 46542.
