Trutta, Thomas Jefferson and U.S.S. Sunfish.  Jack married his wife Jolinda (nee Anderson) on July 7, 1964.  Retiring from the Navy, he worked for Com Ed in nuclear engineering.  Jack was an active member of Christ Lutheran Church as well as the Palatine Kiwanis Club where he served as Spiritual Director.  Although he loved travelling and cycling across the world with Jolinda, his favorite pastime was driving his Shelby Mustang GT 500, in which he recently completed a racing school at the MidOhio Sports Car Course.

He is survived by Jolinda, his wife of over 52 years, as well as his children, son Yngvar II (Kristine Mosier), daughter Lara Joy, grandson Yngvar Brynildssen III (Var), many nieces, nephews and friends. Jack was preceded in death by his father Yngvar, mother Alletta and sister Joy M. Draper.
