Jack Edgar “EG” Tysinger, Jr., 82, of Roanoke, and originally of Thomasville, N.C., passed away and reunited with his wife on Tuesday, June 9, 2020. He was born in Thomasville, NC, to the late Jack Edgar Sr. and Rachel Arlene Clodfelter Tysinger.

Jack was the superintendent of laundry and linen services with Servitex for many years and was the co-owner of Aerial Way Self Storage in Roanoke, Va. from 1999 to 2010.
When he was younger, Jack, liked to hunt and fish as much as possible. Being outdoors was his passion and Jack wanted to be outside whenever he could. He never backed down from any challenge of repairing anything others thought of being unrepairable. Jack was known as a “jack of all trades,” where his carpentry skills were appreciated and left those around him in awe of his skills. At the age of nine, Jack’s gift of playing the drums became real. He eventually, along with mutual friends of music, formed a band called “The Four Jacks.” Using his talent, Jack performed with artists such as Elvis Presley, Billy “Crash” Craddock, as well as Bill Deal and the Rhondals. His musical abilities also led him to record and perform 4 songs with Billy “Crash” Craddock. Above it all, the love he had for his wife and family will always be remembered as a wonderful and much cherished memory.

In addition to his parents, Jack was preceded in death by his wife, Helen Marlene Howie Tysinger; son-in-law, Gregory L. Goehring; and sister, Jane Cagle.

Left to cherish his memory includes his daughters, Kim Owen (Teddy), of Roanoke, Va., Mandy Williamson (Rob), of Wilton, NY, and Jacki Goehring, of Rocky Mount, Va.; sister, Vicki Forest (Jim), of Mt. Airy, NC; grandchildren, Bryce, Sam, Cody, Jake, and Carly.

A celebration of Jack’s life will be held in Thomasville, NC at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please plant a tree.

I will always remember Jack, from High School until now. My deepest sympathies to his family. He always spoke lovingly about his "girls", and his grandchildren, he was so proud of them..and his baby sister. His love for Marlene was never ending. I'm sure there will be a big celebration in Heaven. Rest in peace my dear friend.

I was sorry to read about your loss of your father. Jack was fun to talk to and work with. He and your mother, Marlene, were my clients for a number of years and it was a pleasure to work for them. God bless you on your loss.
