Jack D. Giles, 74, Nashville

Jack D. Giles, 74, of Nashville, died at 8:40 p.m. Tuesday, July 30, 2013 at Brown County Health & Living Community.

Mr. Giles was born in Bedford, May 9, 1939, to Arvern W. and Nora G. Brewington Giles. Jack spent his childhood in Bedford attending high school and enjoying his life with friends and family.

In 1962, he joined the U.S. Army to serve his country. Jack was assigned to Italy. That is where he met the love of his life, Regina Boscato. Jack and Regina wed Sept. 12, 1963. They returned to the United States in February of 1964.

Jack worked as a security officer at Cummins Engine Company until he retired in 1996.

Jack and Regina made their home in Nashville. Regina worked and managed the Fiesta Restaurants in Columbus and Nashville for 20 years. Jack and Regina were loyal friends of owners Irene and Harold Moore and children.

In 1981, Jack converted to Catholicism. He found great comfort in his religion. Regina and Jack attended church every week to celebrate life and their love. They remain members and supporters of St. Agnes Catholic Church. There are many loving friends of the church who will miss Jack.

Jack Giles was a friend to many. He was the kind of friend who never questioned, never doubted, always gave, and always supported. Whenever you needed Jack, he was there. He was true and protective. Jack always protected his loved ones, especially Regina. One thing you could always be sure of was, Jack would tell you the truth! Jack had a great sense of humor, laughing at himself as well as situations. He would be the first one to admit a mistake and apologize. He didn't live to hurt your feelings. He was a sensitive soul, very compassionate to everyone. So this is the kind of human being we loved and we will miss. This is the human being who was "our family" and who we will always remember in many moments of our lives. He will always be with us, always remembered.

Jack is survived by his loving wife, Regina Boscato Giles of Nashville; brother, Larry Giles; sister-in-law, Jymme Giles; and nephew, Takodah Giles of Seymour; sisters, Renda Lawson and Trafina Bennett of Columbus; nieces and nephews; and cousins, Mary Ann and Richard Arthur of Ellettsville, and Donna and Clifford Hammond of Bedford.

Mr. Giles was preceded in death by his parents; aunts and uncles, Ennis and Roy Giles, Avis and Walter Pilgrim and Aunt and Uncle Brewington. Always family, always with us.

The Mass of Christian burial will be at 11 a.m. Monday, Aug. 5, at St. Agnes Catholic Church, 1008 McLary Rd., with Monsignor Bill Stumpf officiating. Family and friends can call from 10 a.m. until service time Monday at the church. The committal inurnment service will be at 2 p.m. Monday, in the Sermon on the Mount section at Garland Brook Cemetery in Columbus. Full military honors will be presented by the Bartholomew County veterans color guard.

Memorial contributions can be made to St. Agnes Catholic Church. Arrangements were entrusted to Barkes, Weaver & Glick Funeral Home.
