Obituary: Jack Nathan Ferguson


BOSSIER CITY – Jack Nathan Ferguson, 57, of Bossier City, Louisiana, passed away August 28, 2014, after asking his sisters if they heard the angels sing. Graveside service will be held at Hill Crest Memorial Park, Haughton, LA on Saturday, August 30, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. Family is asking everyone in attendance to wear LSU attire in honor of Jack.

Born May 13, 1957 in San Antonio, Texas, he was the son of Richard N. Ferguson and Betty Cloud Ferguson of Bossier City. He was a Parkway High Class of ’75 graduate and was a star player on the football team. His jersey number was “1”. He married Cheryl Kirk in 1983 and they resided in Greenville, Texas.

Jack loved fishing and riding the roads on his Harley. His dry sense of humor, one of his many qualities, and his friends enjoyed the stories he could tell about everyday life. He was an animal lover and was known to carry home stray dogs because he didn’t want them to suffer. He loved playing his guitar and wrote and recorded several good country songs. He was so hoping that he would feel good enough to watch LSU play Wisconsin in the season opener this weekend. So, GEAUX TIGERS! He was also a big Saints supporter. WHO DAT!

Jack is survived by his sisters, Becky Bison of Haughton, Debbie Baud and husband Gene of Birmingham, AL, nieces Gloria Carson, Amy Stewart and husband Tyler, of Moody, Al, and Rachel Baud of Birmingham, great-nieces Madison and Angel, and great-nephews Silas and Stone of Moody, Al. Also left behind is Jack and Cheryl’s beloved dog Maggie.

In his final days his wish was to remain at home in the care of his sisters.

He is preceded in death by his wife of 24 years, Cheryl Kirk Ferguson, his father, Richard N Ferguson, his brother Richard Steven Ferguson, and his nephew, Matt Bison.
