Obituary for Jack Moyle

Jack Moyle was born December 29, 1926, as a late Christmas present to William and Alice Moyle of Oglesby, IL. He graduated High School from Central High in Memphis, Tn, in 1944. He married Betty Clydesdale in 1955. Jack was the quintessential gentleman. The smile he carried daily, was given freely to anyone he met, even for the first time. The best parts of him were mixed with the best parts of Betty to create his four children-- two sons and two daughters. He was a fixture at Clydesdale’s store in Oglesby, Il, selling furniture for many years where his talent for home decorating led to a ”Decorators corner” radio program. Jack was a worker, he woke up early every morning to go to work. He followed this routine long after his friends who retired. He worked his last day as a security guard only because he was laid off due to cutbacks and he couldn't find a new job because no one else would hire an 86 year old. As a young man, he learned how to play the organ by ear and mastered the instrument well enough to entertain family and friends during years of holiday get-togethers and parties. In fact, a few weeks ago he could be heard playing the organ in the common area of the assisted living apartment where he lived with Elaine, his second wife of over 40 years. Jack’s favorite pastime was to go to a local Restaurant near where he lived and spend the morning drinking coffee and trading stories with old friends.
