CELEBRATION OF A GREAT LIFE

by Kit Regas

 

This title befits the day and the man in every way.

 

Jack took such pride in his family and loved every minute he could spend with his wife, Kit, of 71 years and each of his three daughters, Claudia, Lori and Kathi.  He reveled in the time he could spend with all of his 13 grandchildren and felt blessed that they lived so close by as they grew up.  He couldn't get enough of "being" with them as well as any time spent with his 49 great grandchildren.

 

He had a wonderful professional career as a dancer, choreographer and television director meeting so many great people and making many lifelong friends.  He treasured them all!!!

 

When we joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints he became an advocate of all it embodied and offers by accepting any callings and magnifying the purposes of them.  Early years were spent working with the youth on Road Shows, Dance Festivals and special shows.  In later years, he and Kit spent 14 years teaching Primary age children (8-10 years old).  He LOVED Primary!  The last 15 years he also has truly enjoyed the countless hours keeping track of old and new ward members as the Ward Membership clerk.  Additionally, he was always willing to give talks about his career to youth groups and grownups whenever asked and he would also teach a little dance step to anyone who was willing to try to learn, including his doctors.

 

Another important phase of his and his family's life...the Polynesian Cultural Center.  We had the privilege of working with hundreds of loving, caring Polynesians for seven years and loving every minute of it.  They taught us so much about the church and loving unconditionally, not by preaching, but by living all of its ideals.

 

Many people could add much more about Jack's "great life" because he has touched and influenced thousands in his journey, a journey not ending but just beginning in a different place... tap shoes in hand!!!!
