Jack Thomas Sheffield passed away peacefully at the Sanctuary Hospice House on Wednesday, June 26, 2024, at the age of 84. He was born in Tupelo on December 4, 1939. Jack proudly served his country in the U.S. Army in Germany during the Vietnam War. In February of 1963, he married the love of his life, Clara Cochran Sheffield and they enjoyed 57 years together before her passing on January 28, 2020. Well known in his community, Jack was the owner of Skyline Tire and later became a route driver for Wonder Bread. His most recent venture was ownership of J and S Furniture. He was a man of great faith and a dedicated member of Boguefala Baptist Church. Jack’s family remembers with a smile, he was always tinkering on something. From old refrigerators to radiators, don’t throw it away because Jack can fix it!
