Obituary of Frank Kenneth Jegen
Frank Kenneth Jegen went west on August 05, 2020. He now resides with eagles in a land we only wonder about. He was born on 12-02-1937 to Charles and Meredythe Jegen in Chicago, IL. He was a miracle baby from the start, and never stood still his entire life. A born flyer, he owned an airplane before he could drive a car. Ken eventually turned his passion for flying into an enviable career at Delta Airlines, retiring as a senior Captain. He also served honorably in the United States Army for 7 years in the counter intelligence corps at Fort McPherson, GA. He loved boats ,motorcycles, and RV’s. Ken had a particular passion for sailing, taking many extended trips with his cadre of fellow enthusiasts over the years. He made many friends in his travels and faithfully kept up with all of them. Sadly, Ken’s beloved wife of 47 years, Georgianna Lee Jegen, born 10-21-1941 to George and Arta Berkut in Wilmington, NC, went to be with our Lord on 08-09-2020, four days later. They were a inseparable pair almost to their passing. Ken is survived by a son, Scott Kenneth Jegen of Atlanta, GA; a daughter, Patricia "Trish" Jackson McFall and her husband, Rick McFall of Indian Rocks Beach, FL; a granddaughter, Kenna Ray McFall of Daytona Beach, FL; a brother, Thornton Rodney Jegen of Chicago, IL; a sister Barbara (Calvin) Bouma of Holland, MI; and numerous nieces, nephews and in-laws.
