Jack, 80, of Sequim, Washington passed away peacefully on August 11, 2014 at Bremerton Hospice. Born July 22, 1934 in Princeton, Texas to Olin Benton and Mary Henritta Godwin. Jack married the love of his life Sharron Hindman on September 6, 1958. Immediately after marrying they moved to Chicago where Jack attended Devry Institute majoring in electrical engineering. After graduating their first job was in San Diego, California where Jack worked on missile defense systems. The majority of his working career was in the power industry performing plant startup and operating services. Jack and Sharron were the all American couple outside of work; when you saw one of them the other was there.

Jack always enjoyed helping other people in the community.
