Jack Wayne Hoover

July 10, 1938 - May 10, 2020

On May, 10, 2020, our lives were forever changed after Jack Wayne Hoover, passed away peacefully in his home, in Medford, OR, following several years of ongoing health conditions. Jack was born in Huntington, IN on July 10, 1938, to Ada and Glenn Hoover. He had a very loving childhood, filled with happy memories of time spent with his extended family, and siblings, Nancy Dowling, Karen Jackson, and Mike Hoover, while they grew up in Muncie, IN. After graduating from Muncie Central High School, Jack enlisted in the Air Force where he served three years. Following his honorable discharge, he courted and married the love of his life, Joyce Anne Robertson. They celebrated their 58th wedding Anniversary on April 12. Jack's career in sales found them moving out west to AZ, CA, and eventually to Oregon, where he resided for 35 years. Jack will be remembered for his great wit and sense of humor, his stubborn tenacity, his possible real fear of Bigfoot, his propensity for overcooking hamburgers on his Weber grill, and his love of lounging in his recliner while amusing himself with television entertainment, including keeping up with Fox News, Storage Wars, and Mountain Monsters. He loved to golf when he was able. Jack was a wonderful father. He gave the greatest hugs and snuggles, and everyone he cared for was granted a nickname: Pudd, Boogie, Guy, and his wife, Loverbug. His presence will be greatly missed, as he was loved dearly. <br /> <br /> Jack is survived by his wife, Joyce, and his three children: Wendy Goeddel (Mitch), Kristy Hammer (Josh), and Tim Hoover (Joan), and his three grandchildren: Stephen Goeddel (fiance-Paige), Melanie Goeddel (Andreus Dunn) and Jadyn Hammer. <br /> <br /> Jack is preceded in death by his sister, Nancy Dowling. He is survived by his siblings, Karen Jackson (nieces, Sharon and Connie), brother, Mike Hoover (wife Kathy), nieces, Kim, Julie, and Lori, and Nancy's husband (Charlie Dowling).

    I have so many memories of Jack it's hard to choose one. Jack played a role of the second father to me. Memories of him always greeting me warmly, saying "It's Lisa the Lizard", whenever he saw me, giving me a kiss on the cheek. I loved to watch TV with him, because he always had some funny, colorful comment about the characters on FOX news or he would bring me up to date on what was happening in Storage Wars or Gold Rush. Jack was a man who loved his family very much and wanted nothing but the best for them.
