Obituary - Jack E. Greer, Jr.

Jack E. Greer, Jr., 55, of Arkansas City, Kansas, passed away Wednesday evening, September 29, 2021, at the Kansas Medical Center in Andover.

Born August 15, 1966, in Olathe, Kansas, he was the son of Jackie and Mary (Stubbs) Greer. He was raised and received his education in the Olathe, attending Olathe High School, until moving with his family to Freeman, Missouri where he graduated from Midway High School in 1984.

Following high school, he purchased his own truck and began working as an over-the-road truck driver. He later worked in the construction field as a heavy equipment operator in eastern Kansas and Missouri. One day while hanging out with friends and “playing around” with a rope, Jack discovered his love for roping. That led to him becoming involved in team roping. While at a competition in Lawrence, Kansas, in 2008, he met Dana Nocero. The couple were united in marriage, in a barn, on horseback, on December 18, 2009. They made their first home in Louisburg, Kansas and moved several times with Jack’s work until settling in Arkansas City in 2019. In addition to team roping, Jack enjoyed going to the sand dunes with family and friends.

His family includes his wife Dana of Arkansas City; and his two daughters, Katlin Greer of Ottawa; and Emily Greer of Arkansas City.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

Memorial services will be held at 10:00 A.M., Thursday, October 7, 2021, at the First Baptist Church in Arkansas City, under the direction of Miles Funeral Service.
