Jack Mcdonough Obituary, Death – Jack Mcdonough, who resided in Hendersonville, Tennessee, passed away on November 5 after a long battle with cancer. Jack was born to his parents, Ernest McDonough and Flora Howell McDonough, on Friday, December 13, in the town of Old Hickory, located in the state of Tennessee. He went to high school in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, where he participated in football and was named to the All-City team during his freshman year. He spent his childhood in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, and continued his education there. He was a man of great intelligence, wit, and fortitude, and he was honest to a fault.
He leaves behind a legacy for his family as a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. His family will benefit from this legacy. On June 18, 1948, he wed Frances McCormick, the girl he had a crush on when they were in high school, and they went on to have a happy marriage together for the next 67 years of their lives. The year 1962 marks the year that the couple first made Hendersonville their permanent residence. Jack took an early retirement after 37 years of devoted service to DuPont, and then went on to become the owner of McDonough Drywall Company for a period of 20 years.
During that time, he was in business for himself. After he retired, he and Frances went on a number of trips and spent the winters in Okeechobee, Florida, where he fished for a significant portion of each day. In addition, he fished for a number of different species of fish. Because he had so many fish, he would frequently throw fish fries for his family, friends, and neighbors. He was very generous. Growing a garden and sharing the fruits and vegetables he produced with his loved ones and neighbors brought him a great deal of satisfaction.
