Dennis Bruce Jacks, 62, of Greenville died Saturday, Aug. 26, 2017, at Hunt Regional Medical Center in Greenville. Memorial service will be 10 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 2, in the Coker-Mathews Funeral Home chapel.
Bruce, as his family knew him, was born Aug. 7, 1955, in Greenville. He was the son of Dale and Bennie Bowen Jacks. He married Molly Wooten on June 14, 1980, in Greenville. He was a graduate of Greenville High School and a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps. He was a Master Plumber for 30-plus years.
Bruce loved his wife, children and grandchildren more than anything in this world. In his spare time, when he was not playing with his grandchildren, he liked to hunt, fish, and work in his yard if you ever drove by his home, you knew it was the best groomed and most beautiful yard in Greenville. His home away from home was Ammo Depot in Caddo Mills, Texas. He worked on the gun range not only helping people in the range, but he cooked on the weekends, he babysat their children, always had candy for the kids and a movie for the kids playing at all times. He always decorated for the holidays and especially loved Halloween. Bruce was a very hard working man and his son said our hearts hurt for Bruce being cheated out of the years with his wife, kids and grandkids. They were most important to him.
He is survived by his wife, Molly Wooten Jacks of Greenville; parents Dale and Bennie Jacks of Sherman; children Dallas Clayton Jacks and wife Magen of Greenville, Caleb Jacob Jacks of The Colony, and Emily Jacks Bragg and husband Zak of Greenville; grandchildren Lillian Jacks, Levi Jacks and Greyson Bragg, all of Greenville. Also surviving are siblings Brian Jacks and wife Mary of Waco, Keith Jacks and wife Peggy of Wylie, Jana Hamilton and husband Lloyd of Waco, Kara Helm and husband Mark Stephens of Pottsboro and Kevin Jacks and wife Ginger of Montgomery, Ala.; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law Randy Wooten and wife Gayle of Richmond, Texas, Tim Wooten and wife Cassie of Greenville, Jon Wooten and wife Nancy of Sanger, James Wooten and wife Marie of Plano, and Polly Wooten Langford and husband Mike of Greenville; and many nephews, nieces, cousins and friends.
