All fellow Model T'ers,
Please say a special prayer for Jack and Sue Daron.
They are both hospitalized. They need your thoughts and prayers now, more than ever. I don't feel I should elaborate in respect of their privacy, but neither are doing well at this point.
They are special people in this hobby and are wonderful ambassadors for the Model T. I wanted you all to know.
Respectfully,
Brent Mize

Prayers from Kim and I. Just saw and talked with him at Homecoming. He had brought with him a restored set of about a dozen different speed wrenches which he donated to the museum.

I will be out of town for a family getaway, so it will be hard to keep this thread updated. I will email Susan Yaeger to see if she can update this thread as more information is available.

Finally met Jack in person after alot of online contact, a couple months ago. He has been helping me on my 1913 Touring. Even had some body panels he was going to help me with in the future to work with my bad ones, and was going to teach me alot of other stuff. Really hate to hear all this. I was looking forward to learning from him, and visiting more.

I hope they pull through.

Unca Jack! One of a kind, a good guy and a good friend. I was really glad he came to Chickasha this year and I got spend some time with him.

I mentioned something once on the forum and received a package from Jack, just because he thought I should have it to go with what I was talking about. I would see Jack at Chickasha just about where he is standing in the above photo.
I hope the best for he and his wife.

My thoughts and prayers for Jack and Sue. I was lucky enough to visit Jack at his shop once while picking up a set of top irons / bows for Frieda. A more welcoming guy I have never met.

For those in direct communication, please pass on my best wishes for recovery and let them know I'm not far away, just up the road a piece in Michigan, if they need anything

A couple years ago I posted a want add for an original ignition key for my T. I got an email from Jack asking for my address. A couple days later I received an envelope from Jack with the correct key in it. He did not want any money and wrote Merry Christmas on the envelope. Such a great loss to the Model T community. Prayers to the Daron family.

I am so sad. Jack was the best. I spent a night with he and Sue 4 years ago on my way to the Richmond museum and THF. They took me to dinner and I gave him a spoke jack for his collection. I'll now cherish the visit we had at Chickasha last March. Please let us know when services are planned. Our prayers for Sue's recovery and the boys....george

We never know when it will be 'our time and turn'...
I didn't have the good fortune of meeting the Darons, but was always pleased with Jack's helpful information. My thoughts and prayers for the family. Since I don't do Facebook or others, could someone identify what happened?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Steve Jelf, Parkerfield KS on Friday, June 16, 2017 - 01:23 pm:

Marv, it's pure speculation on my part, but Jack had a bout with throat cancer awhile back. I suspect that's it. His voice was pretty weak when I saw him recently at Richmond.

Thanks, Steve.
Since both he and his Bride were simultaneously hospitalized, it portended of something else. Regardless, human compassion is not overlooked.

The following was distributed to the Indy500 Chapter & thought it should be shared with all.

Michelle Daron contacted my wife Susan yesterday to let us know that Jack and Sue Daron were both in the hospital. I forwarded her message to many in the club. It is with much sadness to report that Jack has passed away this morning. Jack had pneumonia and the esophageal cancer had spread to his lungs.

Michelle will keep me posted on arrangements which will take place in Jack's home town of Robinson, Illinois.

Sue is still a patient in the IU west hospital in Avon. Michelle reports that Sue is hanging in there but is exhausted. She has a weak heart causing her difficulty in breathing due to her weak heart muscles.

Please keep the Daron family in your thoughts during this very difficult time.

I never had the pleasure of meeting Jack Daron and his wife. However, they have been well known from coast to coast in this hobby for many years. They will be missed.
My sincerest condolences to their entire family, and all their friends. I hope the best also for his wife Sue.

Jack was a kind and helpful Model T guy who sought out opportunities to help fellow hobbyists. He was the exact opposite of the guys who hoard parts to keep them away from others. If Jack had it and you needed it, it was yours. Chickasha will never be the same. We will pray for Sue and the entire family.

Wow, just wow. I am in shock seeing this. Prayers sent to the Daron's.

Early on for me, ten + years ago, jack helped me with some parts. His part prices were super reasonable, his knowledge however was priceless. His post's here were filled with so much knowledge and helpfulness. So sad to see another great one gone. I wish I could have met him.

When I finish the frame for my new speedster I will be thinking of Jack when I bolt in the rear cross member he sent me for little more than postage.
Sorry that I never met him.

I'm glad I had the opportunity to know Jack. He was a class act, and his kind are rare. My sincere condolences to his family, and most concerned recovery wishes for his good lady Sue

Jack was one of the first real T guys I had the pleasure to meet. From past posts and such, when I was invited to his home to pick up some wheels, I didn't know what to expect. Sort of figured he'd be a crabby old guy, WOW, was I wrong, and happy to have had the honor to meet him. His patience with my new guy questions and a tour of his barn, put me at ease. What a nice man, a true asset to the T world. At the Homecoming, although he was "busy" he made time to answer a few more dumb new guy questions. Told me he was waiting for test results, and it's a shock to hear of his passing. Rest in peace, Sir. It is my hope that his family will get through this with the memories of the good times and realize how special he was to us. Godspeed Jack.

I met Jack at his place probably 15 years ago when he had some parts I needed. I was a newbie to the hobby and found his shop and knowledge outstanding, and was probably the visit that makes me dream of what my shop would look like when I retire. He once bought a box full of busted and rusted top irons from me (my leftovers) and later emailed me beautiful pictures of what he was able to restore that pile of scrap into. So sad to hear of his passing. So glad to have met him. rest in Peace. Doogie

When Jack's final arrangements are made, will you please post them?

I too am saddened to hear this. I never knew Jack, but I sure enjoyed his posts on here. I bought one of his repro TT jack handles several years ago and it was excellent. Thoughts and prayers to his family. Dave

May God be with you Uncle Jack. I'll see you up there in Model T Heaven someday. As R.V. said, Chickasha will never be the same without you. There isn't anyone in this wonderful hobby that knew Jack that didn't love him.

We were at Jacks house a few months ago and got the tour of his shop and barn. I thought then with the voice almost gone that he was in for another big fight. He was still working on projects as if nothing was wrong. Jack was even nicer in person. I had no idea his wife was in poor health but she was there and we had a good visit that day. Sorry to hear this was our last visit.

Jack was one of my first Forum contacts when I got started on Model T's all those years ago. He truly was a great ambassador for our hobby. RIP my friend. May you find comfort in the arms of our Lord! Prayers are said for his wife.

I have been at the Petit Jean swap meet since Wednesday and had no internet access. But one friend called me when he saw Uncle Jack's son's message on FB. Then on Saturday I got the news that he had passed.

This is such a sad time for the Model T community. Jack was a good friend and Sue is truly a sweetheart. When I went to Dearborn a few years back, Jack invited me to stay overnight with them on the way up. We went out to eat that evening and I was on my way again the next day. When I stopped by again on the way home, Sue had a pot roast fixed for dinner. It was delicious! She said after a week of eating restaurant food, she thought I needed a home-cooked meal. She was absolutely right. What a sweetheart.

My prayers go out to Sue and her sons in this difficult time. I hope and pray Sue makes a quick and thorough recovery.

Any more news on dear Sue ?
Brent ? Jeff/ Scott Daron? Any up date on Jack's
Service in Robinson, IL? It'll take me 3 days to get there
and honor the family of such an honorable man...
