Jack adored his family and cherished their get-togethers at a family cabin. He was blessed to travel the country with Gloria and enjoyed many summer fishing trips to Canada.  A carpenter by trade for 50 years, Jack also enjoyed hunting, fishing, trapping, and creating artwork in his brass and aluminum foundry.

 

Jack is survived by his sons Gregg (Eileen) Beuse of Denver, Iowa, and Todd (Melana) Beuse of West Des Moines, Iowa; grandchildren Melissa (Anton) Shoemaker, Stephanie (Caleb) Joens, Ashleigh, Abby, Hannah, and Walt Beuse; and great-grandchildren Madison and Payton Shoemaker, and Ethan, Eli and Ian Joens.
