Jack Row was born on December 11, 1934, in Webb City, Oklahoma, to Pauline and Raymond Row. He passed away in Amarillo, Texas on May 14, 2021.
He attended Phillips High School and was a loyal Phillips’ Blackhawk supporter, and a Dallas Cowboys fan. He attended Frank Phillips College and then worked in the auto parts business for most of his life. He retired from Amarillo Hardware in 1997 but continued to work part-time delivering auto parts for various dealers for eight years.
He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Ramah, a son Brian Row and wife Jolene of Amarillo, a daughter Donna Ray and granddaughter Elizabeth Sprout of Wallace, West Virginia, nephews Justin Hutson and wife Christina of Stillwater, Oklahoma, Philip Floyd and wife Sherry of Amarillo, David Mathis and wife Jan of Amarillo, niece Brandi Smith of Mustang, Oklahoma, brother-in-law Charlie Hutson of Mustang, Oklahoma, mother-in-law Estelle Parrish of Amarillo, and his faithful dog companion “Mottley”.
He was preceded in death by his parents, a sister Shirley Parrish, and a granddaughter Vicki Daugherty.
Jack loved to travel, but even more, he loved to plan trips. He had a saying “Not all who wander are lost”. He and Ramah traveled all over the continental United States, Hawaii, Mexico, and Canada. He always had a project going around the house. He loved old cars and pickups and going “antiquing”.
Visitation will be from 6:00 P.M. – 7:00 P.M., Monday, May 17, 2021, at Boxwell Brothers Funeral Home, 2800 Paramount Blvd. Private family burial will be at Llano Cemetery. A family celebration of Jack’s life will be held later, as per his wishes.
