Robert John "Jack" Ketelsen is a devoted father of two, and grandfather of five.  He is currently battling stage 4 lung cancer, which has been diagnosed as "terminal."  Jack was born on June 30, 1948 in Davenport, Iowa, to Russell and Margaret Ketelsen...the 4th of 4 boys.  He is a proud brother to these 3 brothers: Gerald (deceased), Thomas, and Steve.  Jack served his country as a Marine in the Vietnam conflict, and has had careers in franchising, insurance, and accounting.  He loves riding motorcycles, his dog Oscar, and his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  Jack has been on numerous Christian mission trips, where he served the "least of us", and spread the good news of the Gospel to those that would hear.  He is the teller of amazing "dad" jokes, a lover of action movies, and most of all...a good man.  Leave a message of support if you feel inspired to.
