John “Jack” Thomas Bang, the son of Jonas and Anna (Salamack) Bang, was born on January 17, 1933, in Brooklyn, New York. He was raised in Greenpoint, Brooklyn and received his education in the New York school system. Jack enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1953. He was stationed in Iceland and served his country during the Korean War. Upon his honorable discharge, Jack returned to Brooklyn.

In 1959 Jack was united in marriage to Eleanor Przybilski. The couple was blessed with a son, Emil. Eleanor passed away in 1966. During his lifetime Jack worked for different Chevrolet dealerships as a parts manager in the NYC metro area until his retirement. In 1997 Jack along with his brother Edward and sister-in-law Anne moved to Ute, Iowa, to be closer to his niece and her family.

Jack enjoyed everything about cars, collecting coins, and maintaining his lawn. He loved to tell stories from when he was younger as well going for car rides in the countryside. Jack spent his final years as a resident of Maple Heights Nursing Home in Mapleton, Iowa. He enjoyed the care and compassion of the staff.

Left to cherish his memory include his son Emil Bang of Massapequa, NY; numerous beloved nieces and nephews; great nieces and nephews that he loved as his grandchildren: Robert, Jackie and John of Long Island, NY and Christian and Kirsten of Ute, IA.

He was preceded in death by his parents Jonas and Anna Bang; wife Eleanor Bang; brothers Fred and Edward (special sister-in-law Anne); sisters Anna, Mildred and Betty.
