Jack Walker Ewart, age 91, of Georgetown passed away peacefully after a short illness and a remarkably healthy life on Sat., May 17, 2014 in Georgetown Memorial Hospital in Georgetown.
He was a compassionate and caring long time Presbyterian minister and clinical counseling chaplain who served in Barboursville, WV, Radford, VA, Aberdeen, NC, Dunedin and Clearwater, FL, Atlanta, Thomasville, and Toccoa, GA, and even after his initial retirement served again in McClellanville and at Tara Home for Boys in Georgetown County.
Raised in rural Blackstock, SC, he was educated at Davidson College in North Carolina and Union Theological Seminary in Richmond, VA, and later also at the Georgia Institute of Mental Health in Atlanta.
He played a major role in the desegregation of the Presybyterian Church, presenting a resolution to the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (US) in June 1953 urging racial integration in all church-controlled institutions, which prompted a subsequent formal report from the Council of Christian Relations supporting integration at the next General Assembly in 1954.
Jack was a beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather and will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
He was as well a great golfing buddy, playing into his late 80s after forming the “Old Course Walkers,” a golfing group of like-minded seniors at Litchfield Country Club who weekly walked while playing nine holes.
He loved all things Scottish and was also known for his love of trees which he planted wherever he lived, many growing over the years into beautiful groves.
Living on are Phyllis, his wife of 68 years; his sons, McCrea Ewart and wife Jan, Steve Ewart and wife Leslie, William Ewart, David Ewart; and a daughter, Laurie Ewart Chambo and husband Jim.
Jack and Phyllis also have seven grandchildren with one, Patrick, deceased, as well as four great-grandchildren.
A private memorial service was held at his home among the trees with an additional service planned among his forbears at Mulberry Presbyterian Church in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The Family urges that in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions be made to Tara Home for Boys, P.O. Box 955, Georgetown, South Carolina 29442; www.tarahall.org
