Jackie Wayne Couch, 62, of Sacramento, Calif., passed away on Friday, April 16, 2021, after a valiant battle with cancer. He fought long and hard for quite some time. His greatest fear was losing his memory and intelligence during the chemo and radiation process, but he remained sharp as a tack until the very end. He was witty, sarcastic, and always gave everyone a good laugh.

Jack was born March 7, 1959, in Chico, Calif., and graduated from South Lake Tahoe High School in class of 1977. He went on to study drafting and architecture at Cal Poly. In 1988, he was diagnosed with AIDS and only given a year to live, but he persevered through 33 more amazing years.

The job he enjoyed most was working as a booking agent for Royal Viking Cruise Line, something he was very good at. Jack also loved gaming, and was exceptionally great at the Vampire live action role play interactive game.

Jack is survived by his loving mother, Mary Couch, and father, Wayne Couch of Dixon, Calif.; brother, Ron Couch of Denver, Colo.; devoted nieces Randi Couch and Mackenzie Couch of Denver, Colo.. He was preceded in death by his brother, Randy Couch, South Lake Tahoe, Calif.. His intelligence and witty sense of humor will be greatly missed.

Friends and family are invited to a visitation on Sunday, May 2nd, 2021 from 12-3 p.m. at Milton and Carpenter Funeral Home at 569 N. First Street Dixon, CA 95620. Burial service to follow on Monday, May 3, 2021, at 1 p.m. at Happy Homestead Cemetery at 1261 Johnson Blvd, South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150.
