Our dear Brother Jack DeLain Jr. was born in Camden, South Carolina to the late Pauline DeLain and Jack DeLain Sr., on October 7, 1949. Jack was the second oldest child, out of eight children, in the DeLain family.
He relocated to Georgia in 1991 and worked as a Laundryman for Park Springs Community Retirement Center for 10 years and retired in 2013.
Brother DeLain was baptized May 1,1993 and he was a dedicated and faithful brother for 27 years. Jack loved giving back and helping others in their time of need. He lived his life by the words to his favorite song-Unfailing Love, “Though sometimes it seems like the cares of his life Weigh us down and feel hard to bear, Giving brings us joy When we share faith and hope, Comforted by God’s loving care.” Brother DeLain needed no fan fair and often worked behind the scene getting things done for his love ones and friends.
Jack loved life, laughter, and loved to talk. He loved all his children and enjoyed a special father/daughter bond with his girls. One of his daughters mentioned his fondness for football and bowling.
As a testament to his faith, Jack would always speak with his Nurses and Doctors about Jehovah. During his Chemotherapy, his Doctor would always ask for a scripture of the day, because he always was read and listened to his Bible during his treatment.
Brother DeLain endured his illness, with Cancer with great fortitude. On Saturday, September 19, 2020 at 3:30 am, he fell asleep in death.
