John Harold Williamson

John Harold “Jack” Williamson, 70, of La Grande died Feb. 15 at his home. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday at the First Baptist Church in La Grande.

Jack was born May 26, 1936, to Harold and Shirley (Thomas) Williamson in Albany. He graduated from Jewel High School and later from Western Oregon University with a degree in teaching.

He married Sandra Allen from Portland Nov. 29, 1958, and they lived in Fossil. In 1960 he enlisted for one term in the Army. He went on to work for NASA in Pasadena, Calif., then did logging in Eastern Oregon and home construction in La Grande.

Jack will likely be remembered by community members driving around La Grande in his little blue pickup doing mobile RV repair. He was always happy to consider a new face a friend and eager to lend a helping hand. He enjoyed the outdoors, hunting on mule back and riding ATVs, but a handshake and a hug always brought him the most joy.

Survivors include his wife, Sandra of La Grande; children, Annette Lamb of The Dalles and Justin Williamson of Tigard; siblings, Jerry Williamson of Tucson, Ariz., and Bonnie Campbell of Heppner; four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren; and other relatives.

Memorial contributions may be made to the First Baptist Church for NoSU in care of Daniels Chapel of the Valley, 1502 Seventh Street, La Grande, 97850.
