JACK DUCUMMON, Lot 3, In Memoriam

Our community was deeply saddened by the news that Jack Ducummon, Lot 3, passed away on May 13, 2024, at age 82. Jack and his wife, Anita, have been members of Timber Valley for the past 11 years, getting their lot on March 4, 2013. They were high school sweethearts and married in 1962. They started their married life in Southern California but soon his job moved them to Chelalis, WA, where they raised 3 children, worked, and enjoyed life for more than 40 years.

Jack and Anita were exposed to camping in the wild outdoors from an early age, and carried this passion with them right up to the current time. They hit the road more or less full time in 2003 and sold their house in 2006. They were camphosts at Panguitch Lake in Utah for 4 summers at more than 8,000 feet of elevation, where they developed an exceptional ability to process oxygen in thin air.

They got on the AWL at Timber Valley in 2010 and got their lot in 2013. They were active on the Landscape Committee, the PCM Committee, and were the Park electric meter readers for many years. They also took care of the Jacks and Jills Ice Cream Bar freezer, stocking and restocking the frozen treats as needed. Jack had a quick wit that would catch you off-guard with his humor and, always, a wave from his deck when you passed by.

Jack is survived by Anita, sons Jack Jr. and Charles, and daughter Dorothy.

The entire Timber Valley community extends condolences to Anita and the family. Godspeed Jack Ducummon.
