Jack was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to George and Louise Barr. (Kuich) After graduation from Pulaski High School, in 1944, Jack enlisted in the United States Army and served in the Pacific Theatre of Operations during World War II. After his military service Jack earned his Bachelors degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. After earning his undergraduate degree Jack met and married Beverly Rogstad, June 6, 1953. After several periods of employment in Milwaukee, Jack and his family moved to Stevens Point in 1969, and worked for Sentry Insurance until he retired in 1989.

After retirement he was involved in many volunteer activities which he thoroughly enjoyed. Jack served on the Common Council for 14 years, seven of which he served as council president. He was also a member of the Police and Fire Commission and served on the Board of Review.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 61 years, Beverly; his parents George and Louise; brothers, Earl, George, Jim and Tom; sister Elaine.

He is survived by his son David, of Menomonee Falls; his daughter Marie of West Bend, and grandson Nicholas, also many nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank the staff at Brookdale/Dimensions Living for all they did. Their kindness and care are appreciated beyond words, and will always be remembered.

I had the great honor of meeting and knowing Jack while he served in City government. In my eyes and mind, he was absolutely one of the best common-sense elected and appointed City officials that I knew during my quarter century employed by the City. My heartfelt and deepest sympathy to all the family.

Had the privilege of living next to Jack and Beverly since ‘06. They were great neighbors. I will always remember Jack sitting in front of his garage listening to the Brewers game on the radio. He always had a kind word and enjoyed when I’d bring my golden retriever, Sam, over so he could pet him. Rest In Peace Jack.
