John (Jack) Quintin Neubecker, age 88 of Lowell, passed away May 28, 2023, after a long illness.  John was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan on December 2, 1934, to Stephen Loyola and Alice (Hills) Neubecker. He was preceded in death by his brother Fred “Fritz”; sister-in-law, Dorothy; and sister, Edith (Bud) Neubecker.  John was sort of a “Jack of all trades.” He started working in the muck fields as a teenager and worked in the printing shop at The Freeport News, printing the Clarksville Record and Freeport News. Next, he worked at The Grand Rapids Press from 1963 to 1975 in the composing room. Then he wanted to start farming on the property he purchased in 1968. He raised sheep which cleared the land, then he went into the dairy business and after that raising show horses. He was a member of the “Boots and Spur” club in Lowell in his younger days. He also worked at Saskatoon golf club and the Hastings Reminder. After 10 years of traveling to Arizona and moving to Schneider Manor, he worked on the lawns and even helped his wife with the Koffee Klatch on Tuesdays along with the monthly potlucks.  He enjoyed watch and clock repairing but his eyesight was giving out.  He was a member of the Bowne Township Historical Society Commissions and served on the Township planning commission for many years. He is survived by his wife, Marcella G. (Humphrey); sons, Mark (Laura) Neubecker, David Neubecker; grandchildren, Melissa (Jon) Lyons, Kyle Neubecker, Keith (Lauren) Neubecker; great grandchildren, Ainsley, Asher, Wyatt, Harper Lyons, Renleigh, Kitt, Greyson and Quinn Neubecker.
