Jack Fleming, 89, of Spartanburg, died Saturday afternoon, November 4, 2023, at Spartanburg Medical Center. He was born on August 17, 1934, in Pacolet, SC. Jack was the son of the late Charles and Nannie Fleming.
Jack graduated from Pacolet High School and Fruitland Baptist Bible College and served in the US Air Force for four years. He retired from Draper Corporation.
Jack was a member of Croft Baptist Church. He loved sharing his knowledge of the Bible and taught many Sunday School classes over the years. Some of his best times were spent fishing on the Pacolet River, dancing, cooking, and playing golf at The Creek Golf Club. Jack always had a funny story or joke to tell. Most stories included his good friend, Floyd Watts, and his antics growing up as an identical twin. The family will cherish memories of him and his ability to always put a smile on their face.
He is survived by his daughters, Kim Fleming (Mark Mahaffey) and Lisa Stephens (Reno); three grandsons, Christopher Martin (Candi), Andrew Martin (Lindsey), and Kasey Fleming (Brianna); his 5 great-grandchildren, Aubree Jane Martin, Cameron Martin, Maverick Martin, Kolton Fleming, and Kenji Fleming. In addition, he is survived by his twin brother, Joe Fleming: his sister, Mickey Pettigrew; and many nieces and nephews. Jack was predeceased by a son, Eric Fleming; a grandson, Kellen Fleming; sisters, Mary Etta Fleming, Vera Wilkins, and Gena Hill; and a brother, Victor Fleming.
Over the last several years, Jack called White Oak at North Grove his home, and the family will forever be grateful for the care and compassion of the staff that assisted him on a daily basis. The family would also like to thank the Pavilion 4 ICU nurses at Spartanburg Medical Center who, not only cared for their dad, but touched them with their compassion and support as their father left this world to enter into his eternal home with his Heavenly Father.
A graveside service will be held 10 a.m. Friday, November 10, 2023, at Greenlawn Memorial Gardens, 1300 Fernwood-Glendale Road, Spartanburg, SC, conducted by the Rev. Dr. Michael Bradley.
The family suggests that in lieu of flowers, memorials be made to Croft Baptist Church Joy Club, 4190 East Croft Circle, Spartanburg, SC 29302.
