Together they lived and raised their family in Indianapolis. Paul was a servant of the Lord. All who knew him were blessed by his prayers, his stories and his warm smile. Together with Betty he raised and loved four children and many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren. Paul was a retired pipe fitter and a member of the Plumbers, Steamfitters and HVACR Service Technicians Local 440. He was a standing member of University Heights Christian Church for many years. In the 1960s he was instrumental in the founding of Southport Heights Christian Church on the south side of Indianapolis. He was a retired minister for Christian Chapel of Southern Indiana in Morgantown, Indiana. He spent his later years as an active member of Greenwood Christian Church where he could often be seen wearing his Sunday cowboy boots and carrying a well-worn Bible. He was a champion for Allendale Christian Camp and Retreat Center in Trafalgar, Indiana. Paul was preceded in death by his son, Paul David Jacks. He is survived by Betty, his wife of 75 years, and his sons Mark Jacks (Gina) and Timothy Jacks (Karen), daughter Deborah Harper (Michael) and his many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren.
