John "Jack" Rease, age 71, of Painted Post, passed away July 6, 2022 at Arnot Ogden Medical Center, with his loving family at his side.
He was born in Niagara Falls, NY to Cleo (Davis) and John Rease. He married the love of his life, Phyllis Kinary on April 20, 1968.

Jack is survived by his loving wife Phyllis, daughter Tammy (Alan) Austin, son Jack (Michelle) Rease, and son Shaun Rease; grandchildren, Cody Austin, Nicole Austin, Taylor Rease, and Braeden Rease, and great-granddaughter Olivia Martin.
Jack worked at Dresser Rand for nearly 30 years. Jack was an avid outdoorsman and loved cruising to tropical places with his beloved wife and family.
