Jack William Greenway, age 77, of Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, formerly of Greenville, Michigan, passed away unexpectedly at home. Jack was born on May 11, 1940, in Alma, Michigan, the son of Charles T. and Virginia Bell (Marvin) Greenway. He attended Greenville Area Schools graduating with the Class of 1958, and continued his education earning a Bachelor’s Degree from University of West Florida in Pensacola.

During his twenty-five year career, he served in several capacities and was honorably discharged as a Master Chief Petty Officer. He then joined Lockheed Martin and worked as a Manufacturing Supervisor on component systems used in the space shuttle program. He loved his work and earned the coveted aerospace “Silver Snoopy Award” for his work on safety in-flight issues, among many other commendations along the way. He enjoyed fishing and most recently his favorite pastime was spending time playing cards and socializing with his comrades at the American Legion Club and The Veterans of Foreign Wars Club near Bay St. Louis, where he was a member.
