Jack Martyn Wilbern 
passed away peacefully on May 17, 2013 in Palm Coast, Florida. Jack was born on May 8,1932 in San Diego, California, growing up in Glendale. A graduate of the United States Naval Academy, Class of 1956, Jack proudly served his country as a Naval Aviator, retiring a Captain in 1980, while raising a family of two sons and a daughter. His service may have defined his early life, but was really only the beginning of his adventure. After the end of his naval career, and until his passing, Jack pursued his passion and joy for acting and the theater, supporting and appearing in scores of stage productions in San Diego, Northern Virginia and the Palm Coast area. In 1977 he met and later married Georgia Workman. For 33 years, Jack & Georgia cherished each other as soul-mates, enjoying the fruits of life and love. Jack's greatest joy was sharing life with Georgia, their family and friends. A man with an opinion on just about everything, who could fix just about anything, and a master of "gadgets", Jack was surrounded with people who shared his passion for life and commitment to a common purpose. Jack was always there, as the voice at the end of the table, as counselor, as team-mate, as golf partner and friend; taking great joy in having others feel appreciated and valued. Perhaps it's appropriate that Jack's final curtain-call was in a play called "Pygmalion", a story of commitment, hope, transformation and love. Rest assured that Jack will miss you as much, or more, than we all miss him. You, his family and friends, were his life and legacy. Published in Daytona Beach News-Journal on May 26, 2013.
