Francis John “Jack” McCloskey Jr., of Middleville, MI passed away February 16, 2024 at age 77 at his daughters home in Indiana. Jack was a graduate of Hastings High School and Ferris State University. He was a Vietnam Veteran of the United States Air Force and a long time board member and treasurer of the Tuy Hoa Air Base Reunion Association. Jack worked in administrative health care most of his life, retiring as Chief Information Officer of hospitals. After retirement he could be found in his “hobby hut” creating buildings and scenery for his model railroad, of which he was very talented. He also enjoyed spending time at classic car and street rod shows, golfing with friends and boating around the lake. He was a loving father, adoring grandfather, devoted friend, generous neighbor, and a proud veteran. Jack is survived by his two daughters, Dana Meyer of Huntington, IN, Erin (Willem) Ouborg of San Leandro, CA; four grandchildren, Ethan Meyer, Kayla Meyer, Jasper Ouborg, Jemma Ouborg; sisters, Terry Campbell of Middleville, MI, Ann McCloskey of Grand Rapids, MI; numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins; and his former spouse, Patricia McCloskey (Perpich). He was preceded in death by his father, Francis John “Frank” McCloskey, Sr. and mother, Constance “Connie” Harper McCloskey (Cook). The family will greet visitors on Thursday, March 14, from 10 - 11 am at Ss. Cyril & Methodius Catholic Church, 159 131 Ave. Wayland, MI, where the Service will begin at 11 am. Fr. Maximilian Nightingale as celebrant. Military Funeral Honors will be at Ft. Custer National Cemetery, Augusta, MI, beginning at 3 pm.
