Jack Truax

Jack Truax, age 84, passed away at Lancaster Manor on March 21, 2022.  Jack attended Waverly high school and graduated in 1956.  Jack was an All-Star athlete in basketball, boxing, football and track.  In high school, he met Vicki Milleson on the school bus and it was love at first sight.  In 1958 they married and within the first year they had started a  family.  They took care of Vicki’s brother Clay Milleson and shortly afterwards their daughter Kim was born in 1959 and their son Corey was born in 1964.  One of Jack’s biggest accomplishments was being a father.  His children Kim and Corey called their dad a superhero.  He was always there for them through their ups and downs, and taught them to enjoy every moment life has to offer.  Being a kind and dependable father was of upmost importance to Jack and he certainly did not disappoint when it came to wholehearted loving his family.

Jack worked at the Burlington Northern for 30 years.  In his spare time he loved to throw horseshoes, play basketball, and spending time with his family.  He was a kind loving partner to his wife Vicki, as well as an amazing father to his children and grandchildren.  Jack always would talk to people and was kind to everyone he met.  “This is how he chose to live his Life.”  He always aimed to make people feel welcome in their life, whether to help someone move, offering sage advice, or just being supportive.  Jack would go above and beyond.  When their daughter Kim and their son Corey got married, he welcomed their son-in-law Jeff and daughter-in-law Michelle with open arms.

He is survived by his wife Vicki and children Kim and Jeff Slosson, Corey and Michelle Truax, Clay and Gina Milleson, his brother Bill Truax, grandchildren, Nathanael and Joshua Slosson, Tyler and Ryan Truax and his great grandchildren Liam, Luke, Lily Slosson and Carter Truax.  Jack is preceded in  death by his dad Frank and his mom Ruth, brothers Lee, Buzz and Frank.

Jack was a true man of God and will now rest in peace with our heavenly father.

The visitation will be held at Wyuka Stables on Friday, March 25, 2022 from 2:00-4:00 P.M.


  1. Truax family, Please accept my deepest condolences on Jack’s passing. He was a mainstay around boxing and always one of the Emery family’s favorite boxers.

  2. Vicki, Corey & family, condolences on your loss. I remember Jack from way back in the day. May you all find peace in your memories.

  3. What a wonderful friend and Christian brother. He was always upbeat and positive. I think back fondly to the games we competed in and the good times we had. Sitting in church in our softball uniforms because we wouldn’t have time to change before the game. Will look forward to seeing you once again at our eternal home.
