May 4, 1932 - May 27, 2015
Donald Hoyt Jacques, 83, of Lawson, Missouri, passed away peacefully at his residence on May 27, 2015, doing what he loved doing; looking out at his garden and grilling. Don was born on May 4, 1932 in Sarcoxie, Missouri, and was the son of the late Ted and Elizabeth Jacques.
Don retired from the International Union of Operating Engineers 101 after 50 years of service.
Don had never met a stranger and received great joy from serving others. He proudly served his country in the U.S. Air Force from 1951-1956 serving in the Korean War. He was a long standing member of many organizations including: Cuba Lodge 312 (50 years), Scottish Rite Steelville, Missouri (50 years), Aarat Shrine (50 years), and Optimist Club.
Don enjoyed the outdoors and spent his time hunting, fishing, and gardening. He could often be found enjoying life in his bib overalls, work boots, and ball cap. He was a true family man with a generous heart.
He is survived by his wife Margaret of 33 years, son Ted (Kim) Jacques, daughter Tammy (Teddy) Hudlemeyer, and daughter Tracy (Doug) Hudlemeyer. He is also survived by his grandchildren Heather (Ryan), Tina, Todd, and Troy (Danielle), Dalton, TJ, Haylee, and great-granddaughter Jaylenn, sister Barb Baker, and brother Joe Jacques.
