John Bone

February 16, 1942 — October 12, 2019

John “Jack” Thornhill Bone, age 77, of Crookston passed away early Saturday, October 12 at the Riverview Hospital in Crookston after being ill for three years.

Jack was born on February 16, 1942 in Wichita, Kansas and proud to grow up in Wichita.  He attended school in Wichita and afterwards enlisted in the United States Marine Corps being stationed in Hawaii. After being honorably discharged, he began his lifelong career in the computer field. He was proud to work with IBM, Northwest, and Delta Airlines.  In 1983, he married Betty Peet and lived in the Minneapolis area before retiring.  Betty and Jack moved to Crookston in 2005 where Jack became an active and dedicated member of the Eagles, including being a past president.  He also enjoyed fishing and building and working on computers. His blunt and honest opinion will be cherished and missed by many.

Jack is survived by his wife of 37 years, Betty; daughter, Jacquie Smith; sons, Kai and Robin Bone; stepchildren, Joan (Mike) Blomquist, Jim Limper and Richard Limper; several grandchildren; and sister Debi Edmiston.  He was preceded in death by his stepdaughter, Dawn Crenshaw.
