In Memory of
Jack Neal Lacy
-

Jack Neal Lacy, 68, passed away on June 18, 2018 in Rosenberg, Texas.  He was born on July 26, 1949 in Marshall, Texas to Alfred Eli Lacy and Nadine Kuykendall Lacy.

Jack was a man greatly loved by family and friends.  For his family he was a strong anchor, and he encouraged and comforted just by his calm demeanor and assurances that whatever the trial might be - “this too shall pass.”  He had a unique gift of bringing perspective and diplomacy with few words.  An inherently polite and kind man, he used humor and analogies to alleviate struggles and lighten the atmosphere around him, whether at home or the work place.  He loved his career in Logistics with Fluor and Bechtel, and cherished and thoroughly enjoyed those he was blessed to work alongside towards common goals. Fellow workers describe him as a ‘consummate professional.’

Jack loved work of every kind, but most especially he loved working outside in his garden or property.  He had two places where he found the most contentment, either on his beloved tractor, or with his family - his greatest treasure.  In fact, the words “Family Man” best describe him.  His sons and grandchildren were his absolute delight and focus, and all thrived in the wonderful environment of his generous, supportive, kind and loving example of service and laughter.  Jack taught by what he did, not what he said.  He described himself as a simple man, satisfied by simple things. 

He believed life is about attitude and how we respond to challenges.  Even in his cancer battle, Jack looked for and found what there was to learn from it and give thanks for.  Jack loved to grow things, either digging in the dirt or teaching by example.  The outdoors and nature were personal favorites and he enjoyed history, geneology, photography, hunting and target shooting. The Lord gave him the song "Day by Day” for his cancer journey, and it was a mantra that fit him, for one day at a time is how he already lived his life.  He was grateful for this directive, and embraced it and all the challenges of his cancer journey with great acceptance and perseverance. He was grateful for the lesson that it taught him not to take anything for granted and to cherish every day given.  To say he will be greatly missed is a vast understatement.  Thank God he lives on in his children and grandchildren who grew and thrived in his genuine, deep and faithful love.  He departed with the words, “Not goodbye, but see you later.”   Oh how we all lean into that happy day when we will be reunited with this fabulous, cheerful, kind and loving man!

He is survived by his wife of 46 years, Sandra Buckingham Lacy; sons, Stephen Jacob Lacy & wife Lindsay, Matthew William Lacy, and Joseph Ryan Lacy & wife Jamie; grandchildren, Emma Mathems, Jackson Lacy, Riley Lacy, Jacob Jennings Lacy, and Mikaela Lacy; and his brother, Alfred Lacy.

In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his brothers, Alan Lacy and Phil Lacy; sister, JoAnne Monday; niece, Michelle; and sister-in-law, Terry Buckingham.
