Jack Wendell Marksberry

June 1, 1940 — August 10, 2022

Jack Wendell Marksberry, 82, of Utica, KY, passed away August 10, 2022. He was born June 1, 1940, in Utica, to the late Harvey and Ella B. Horrell Marksberry.

Jack served in the U.S. Air Force and completed two tours to Vietnam. After Vietnam he worked in the aircraft industry with the Boeing Corporation. After many years there, he got involved in the manufactured housing industry. This connected him to many parts of the country, but that part of his career, mainly in the 90's and early 2000's, was mostly centered around "Home Folks" in Owensboro. He also owned several businesses over the years. His true passion was "Jack's Barn", a business he owned in Pleasant Ridge.

Jack coached football and basketball teams that his sons were part of, but many other team members considered him a second dad. He was also a songwriter and front man for the band, "Coyote". Jack had several beloved dogs and enjoyed U.K. Basketball. More importantly, Jack loved spending time with family, and he had a special presence that left people he met with a smile on their face.

He was preceded in death by his sisters; Peggy Jeffers, Mary Lee Poole, Betty Shelton, Rachael Kirtley and Mildred Crowe; brothers, Sam, Gene, Paul and John Marksberry.

Jack is survived by his wife of seventeen years, Joyce Ambrose Marksberry; daughters; Pamela Stirewalt of Ashville, NC and Sarah (Ben) Maddox; sons, Joe (Crystal) Marksberry of Utica, KY, Eddie (Lori) Marksberry of Louisville, Jimmy (Lauri) Marksberry of Owensboro and Casey (Amber) Marksberry of Owensboro; step-daughter, Tracy (Scott) Stieff of Reynolds Station; fifteen grandchildren; twenty-two great-grandchildren; one great-great grandchild; and his brother Harvey Marksberry, Jr., of Owensboro.

The funeral service will be 12:00 PM, Monday, August 15 at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory with burial following at Rosehill Cemetery. Visitation will be from 2:00 until 6:00 PM Sunday and from 11:00 AM until Noon Monday at the funeral home.
