Jonathan Joseph (Jack) Piefer (December 7, 1947-September 6, 2022 ) died peacefully in his sleep at home with his family after a short illness. Jack was born in Manitowoc, Wisconsin to Joseph and Floraine (Luzi) Piefer. He and his family lived all over the Midwest finally settling in Alvin, Texas, in 1963, where Jack graduated from Alvin High School in 1967. He proudly served in the U.S. Air Force from 1967 to 1971, and later went to work at BP Amoco for over 30 years. Jack loved the Green Bay Packers, the Houston Astros, airplanes, and a good bottle of scotch. He was a hard worker, a good friend, but most of all a devoted husband and father. Jack married his beloved wife Shannon (Froberg) on October 9, 1971. The two of them lived life to the fullest; whether it was dancing to Motown hits in the kitchen, enjoying a good steak, debating history, or traveling to new locales. They were partners for over 50 years, devoted to each other until the end. Jack’s daughters, Stephanie and Stacey were his biggest fans, and he returned their love in multitudes and with no strings attached. He was the original Girl Dad. In his eyes, there was nothing “my girls,” couldn’t or shouldn’t do. Play a sport, try it! Study art, sure! His love was unconditional, never doubted and never taken for granted. There were few absolutes in his life but the four of them were a unit, always going through life together and always there for each other.
Jack is preceded in death by his parents and is survived by Shannon, Stephanie, and Stacey; his loving son-in-law Terry Niemeyer, his adored brother Joel Piefer and his wife Chantal, his treasured brother-in-law John Froberg and his wife Jayne. Jack had numerous nieces and nephews, four cats who never left his side, two granddogs, and three grandcats. Jack’s friends, Mary Barber Leavitt, Johnnie Mae Powell, Tommy and Becky Peebles and all of the Pecan Grove neighbors, Buddy Mitchell, and Randy Langston all helped make his life complete and special, and they visited with him often and regaled him with stories from the past keeping him company and sharing a laugh or two. Jack’s family thanks Dr. Robert DeWitt and his office staff, caregiver Almeda Thatcher, and the team at Harbor Hospice for taking such good and kindhearted care of Jack in his final weeks of life. As a lifelong animal lover, Jack would like you to remember him with a donation to the Alvin Animal Adoption Center (https://www.alvin-tx.gov/page/animalshelter.home); 1500 S Gordon Street, Alvin, TX 77511.
