Obituary of Jack Boyd Shirley Jr.

Jack Boyd Shirley passed away at his home in Murfreesboro, Tennessee on February 15, 2022 at the age of 77. He was born in Indianapolis and spent much of his adult life there before moving to Tennessee in 2014. Jack was a Regional Vice President at Osburn-Hessey Logistics before his retirement. He spent many years as “Captain” Jack at Lake Monroe where he enjoyed time with family and friends. Jack loved to water ski, play tennis, and he took up running - completing both the Los Angele & New York marathons in the same year. He closely followed sports of all kinds and his favorite teams were the Indiana University Hoosiers and Tennessee Titans. He is remembered for his infectious smile, wit, faith, and abiding love for his family. He was predeceased by his parents, Jack Sr. and Martha Shirley, and his sister Georgia Bates.
