Jack D. Mace, of Richmond, VA, went to be with the Lord, 8 days before his 94th birthday, on Saturday, February 20, 2021. He was loved by all who knew him. He was honest, patient, hardworking, with a quick wit. Known to his family as “Pa”, he could fix anything. A proud WWII veteran, he served as a Seabee for the US Navy. After serving in the military Jack continued his career as a professional truck driver, accomplishing 3 million Safe Driving Miles. He retired after 39 years, but that did not keep him off the road. Jack and Peggy became traveling gypsies, exploring the countryside in their RV. He was also an active member of West Richmond Church of The Brethren, and a 32nd Degree Mason with Masonic Lodge 14.
