Jack Oak­ley, 90, of Springvill­e, Pa., died Thurs­day at home. He is sur­vived by his wife of 63 years, Mae (Pratt) Oak­ley.

He was born on July 5, 1930, in Springvill­e, Pa., to the late Luther S. and Ila (Sut­ton) Oak­ley.

Jack grad­u­ated from Springvill­e High School and served four years in the United States Navy dur­ing the Korean War. He was a mem­ber of the Amer­i­can Le­gion Gard­ner-warner Post #154. Jack worked con­struc­tion/ carpentry his en­tire life. He was a “Jack” of all trades. He en­joyed hunt­ing, fish­ing, trav­el­ing, camp­ing, casi­nos and danc­ing with Mae, both round and square danc­ing. Jack was al­ways at ease around peo­ple. He had a won­der­ful sense of hu­mor and was a bit of a prac­ti­cal joker.

Cindy Oak­ley; daugh­ter, Paula Mack; two grand­chil­dren, Kris­ten (Cory) Rowe and Kyle (Kav­ina) Oak­ley; three great­grand­chil­dren, Kiera Oak­ley, and Em­mett and Nora Rowe; sev­eral nieces and neph­ews.
