Jack Allen Pickard, Sr. departed this world af­ter a lengthy illness on June 3, 2019 at Tennova Healthcare in Clarks­ville, TN. Jack was born on November 4, 1939 in Tipton County, TN to Edward Alexander {Ned} and Anna Delancey Pick­ard. Jack grew up enjoy­ing farming in the Gilt Edge community and developed into a stellar athlete, playing football, basketball and baseball for Munford High School.
