Birth: 1932
Death: 2010

J. R. Jack Batten, 77, passed away suddenly on March 24. 2010, at his home in Deweyville, Texas.

Jack was born in Franklin, Texas to John Henry and Mina Klein Batten, on October 4, 1932, the oldest of six children. He grew up, in Tabor, and held a love in his heart for that part of Texas. He was a member of Cottonwood Baptist Church. Jack raised his family in Clute, Texas, while working for Dow Chemical. He was a kind man who never met a stranger, loving to visit and joke. He had a special place in his heart for children, spoiling them whenever possible.

Jack is preceded in death by his beloved wife, Jeannine Elliot "Neenie" Batten, his parents; John and Mina Batten, two brothers; Bob Batten and Richard Batten, and one sister, Margaret "Sissy" Niski.

He is survived by his daughter, Jackie Linn Batten Martin and husband, Jeff, of Lake Jackson, Texas, sister, Nelda Bishop and husband, Bud, of Hearne, Texas, one brother, Ralph Batten, of Franklin, his wife's sister, Cheryl E. Cobb and husband, Ralph, of College Station, sister in law's; Madlyn Batten, of Tabor and Peggy Pratt, of Milano, as well as numerous nieces and nephews, and special friend, Dorothy Rheel and family of Deweyville, Texas. He will be missed by all who knew him, and not the least by his many four-legged buddies, especially his constant companion, Harley.

There will be a visitation on Sunday the 28th from 1 until 4 p.m., at the Restwood Funeral Home, in Clute, Texas.
