Jack C. Flack Jr.

Jack “Skip” Flack of Port Washington, Wis., passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, Jan. 13, 2022, at the age of 59 years.  

Skip was born Feb. 3, 1962, in Indianapolis, Ind., the son of Jack C. Flack Sr. and Shirli Brinker Flack.  

The family moved to Port Washington, Wis., shortly after he was born and that is where Skip grew up. He attended Lincoln Elementary and Thomas Jefferson Middle schools as well as Cedar Grove-Belgium High School when the family moved to its home on Lake Michigan in the Town of Belgium.  

He married the love of his life, Sylvia Hoerig Demge, on Aug. 23, 2003, in Elko, Nev.  

Skip spent his career working at the family company, Allied Insulation Supply, starting as a youngster working alongside his parents and eventually becoming plant manager of the company’s headquarters in Milwaukee.  

He was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed sailing, hunting and riding his UTV with Sylvia and friends in the Northwoods.  

Skip and Sylvia enjoyed their lake home on Lake Winnebago in Brothertown and had plans to build a new one this spring.  

He sailed many years on Lake Michigan with his parents, and their first sailboat was named Skipjack. They participated in many races over the years on Skipjack, Skipjack 2 and Vivere, including the Queen’s Cup and Clipper Cup races across Lake Michigan.  

He was a dedicated deer hunter and spent many years hunting at the family camp in Argonne and more recently at John Leiviska’s cabin in Wabeno. Deer hunting was always a special time with family and friends.  

Skip was an accomplished bowler. He belonged to three bowling leagues and competed in county, state and national bowling tournaments. One of his proudest accomplishments was his first 300 game.

Not only was Skip a devoted husband, son and father, he was a friend extraordinaire who did anything and everything that he could imagine others needed. He was a ton of fun and his life was filled with joy.  

He was so proud of his son Jack and was especially proud of Jack’s military service. He was so looking forward to Jack’s graduation from Marquette University Law School in May and his continued military service as an attorney in the Army JAG Corps.  

Jack and his wife Rachel welcomed their son Carson six weeks premature in mid-December, and Skip was thrilled to meet him on Jan. 2.  

Skip is survived by his wife Sylvia; his son Jack (Rachel) Flack III; stepson David (Sara) Demge; stepdaughter Laura Demge; and grandchildren Carson Joe Flack, Ryan Demge and Isabel Demge.  

He is further survived by his mother Shirli Flack; sisters Vici (John) Dohrwardt, Rose (Jeff) Morgan, Anita (Bob) Woods, Laura (Kurt) Goranson and Holly (Matt) Stubbs; brothers Mark (Laura) Flack and  Andy (Mary) Flack; and brother-in-law Richard (Hae Suk) Hoerig.  

He is also survived by many nieces and nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews, Tim and Ben Lewis and many, many friends.

He was preceded in death by his father Jack C. Flack Sr., his mother-in-law Marianne Hoerig and his father-in-law Helmut Hoerig.

Funeral services will be held at Friedens Church, 454 N. Milwaukee St., Port Washington, on Saturday, Jan. 22, 2022, at 4 p.m.  

Visitation will be held at Friedens on Saturday from noon to 4 p.m.
