John “Jack” Hertzog passed away on February 2, 2024 at the Bruce McCandless Veterans Center in Florence, Colorado at the age of 81. He was born on April 17, 1942.
He was an avid bowler, coin collector, St. Louis Baseball Cardinals fan, trivia guru, jokester, people person, genuine good man and devoted to his Church.
Jack’s parents divorced when he was only 5 years old. His early life wasn’t easy but he did join the Air Force at an early age. He was honorably discharged after a short time due to a chronic health condition. He spent the following years visiting virtually every state in the country picking up work where he could as well as washing windows and finding himself.
Jack eventually settled in Texas where he found his Church and the love of his life Wanda (nee Blummer). They married in Texas on March 21, 1983 and eventually moved to Roswell, New Mexico.
Jack is survived by his half sisters Cherie (née Hertzog) and Nancy (nee Ballard). He maintained a special bond with them as well as a stepsister Joanne (nee Nero) and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
He was preceded in death by his wife Wanda; his parents Elizabeth (nee Pope) and John Hertzog; his stepmother Margaret and stepbrother John Nero.
There will be no service as he donated his body to science as did his wife.
He will be interred at the Fairmount City Cemetery in Denver at a later date.
