Jack, it was an honor to have known you and spend time with you listening to all your stories and advice. I'm so glad you can rest now and you're no longer suffering. I'll miss you my birthday buddy !!

Just a quick story that still makes me laugh. One Saturday, at my house, we were having dinner and the roast was late in cooking (oven temperature was wrong). I was apologizing for the delay and your Mom said to me "quit apologizing, Jack hasn't stopped eating since he got here and it's more than he ever gets for dinner." Loved feeding him, he was always my biggest fan for my home-cooked meals!! P.S. the next weekend he showed up with a new oven thermometer for me - no more delays with dinner.

Biography

EDWARD J. CHAPMAN (JACK)
MARCH 26, 1925-JUNE 23, 2016

Survived by:

Two brothers, Gordon King Chapman and David Lee Chapman
Daughter, Stephanie Norwicz and Son-in-law, Mark Norwicz
Grandchildren, Matthew and Lauren Norwicz
Nieces, Joyce McDowell, Dana Garton (Bill), Lisa Civick Davis (Roger), Susan Gallagher, April Morgan, Trish DuBose, Christine and Jennifer Civick
Nephews, Brandon and Justin Garton, John Grossklaus, Stephen and Richard Chapman

Jack was raised in Hundred, West Virginia with 4 brothers and one sister (Richard, John, King, David and Mary) and entertained the family with stories of country life – catching frogs, camping, and driving to the local bar without a driver’s license.

Jack was in the Merchant Marines in WWII and the Air Force in the Korean War. Jack was a huge supporter of our military and was very proud to be an American and former serviceman.

When he returned home from the war, Jack went to work as an accountant for NRECA and various property management companies in the DC area. Jack met Barbara, his wife, at one of those jobs.

Everyone who knew Jack loved him. He was a very giving and caring person without the ability to say “no” to anyone. Jack loved being a father, grandfather and uncle. He would do anything for his family!

He enjoyed traveling, with trips across the U.S. and to Europe after retiring. Jack enjoyed sharing stories of his trips, and the history he experienced growing up, with his family. To keep Jack's patriotic spirit alive, please consider a donation to Wounded Warrior Project in memory of Edward Chapman.

Jack will be missed terribly but he was blessed with a long happy life and we are all blessed to have known him.
