Our deepest condolences to all those who had the pleasure and opportunity to know, admire and love Jack Belgum.
In keeping with the theme of having fond memories of him, I wish to share my early memories of Jack.
During the mid-80’s, I and my brother had resided in Berkeley. We were excited when Jack, Annette and Elena moved to the Bay Area!
We so enjoyed exploring San Francisco together and I clearly recall visits to Golden Gate Park and the panoramic views from the Sutro Tower area of The City.
The following year, we planned an outing to Yosemite’s Curry Village. I will never forget our meandering climb to and from Bridal Veil Falls. We all had smiles even though I’m not sure which was more uncomfortable...the intense heat or the burning thigh and knee pain. During that trek, Jack had taken the time to teach me the use of slow shutter speeds to accentuate flowing water and many other functions on my newly acquired Pentex ME Super 35mm camera. I attribute my love of 35mm photography to Jack’s patient approach when teaching me camera skills as it related to optics and exposure settings!
Additionally, Jack instilled my appreciation of steam locomotives!
We are sooo glad we attended Jack & Annette’s 25th Anniversary Celebration...yet another wonderful memory!
In closing, we can only wish our ‘life path’ would have allocated much more time with Jack (and his family).
Jack will truly be missed as he now lives on in our fond memories of him.
Rest In Peace, Jack.
