Jack Compton

August 7, 1935 — August 10, 2021

Jack D. Compton, 86 of Little Creek passed away on August 10, 2021, in Lexington, Kentucky. He was born on August 7, 1935, in Yeager, Kentucky to the late Wilburn and Cordelia (Hopkins) Compton. The third of six siblings, he was a 1953 graduate of Virgie High School. He served in the U.S. Army and, for a time, was stationed in Germany. He continued to support our troops and veterans throughout his life, a cause that meant a great deal to him. He was a believer in the Old Regular Baptist faith and regularly attended services at the Little Creek Church for many years. After retiring from working in the coal industry, he spent most of his time gardening at his home in the mountains and spending time with his family. Perhaps his favorite role was being “Papaw” to Zoey and Millie. He is predeceased in death by his parents and two sisters, Glema Franklin and Mary Sue Collins. He is survived by his wife of nearly 55 years, Nova Jeanette (Meade) Compton; one daughter, Angela Thompson (Brian) of Lexington, KY; two sisters, Reba Kinney of Jackson, MI and Minda Lou Mitchell of Pikeville, KY; one brother, Kyle Compton (Lynn) of Pikeville, KY; two granddaughters, Zoey and Amelia “Millie” Thompson of Lexington, KY; and a host of friends and extended family who will miss him dearly. Visitation will be held at Lucas and Son Funeral Home in Pikeville from 6:00-8:00 PM on Friday, August 13th. Funeral services will be held at Lucas and Son Funeral Home on Saturday, August 14th at 11:00 AM, before he is laid to rest at the Potter Cemetery at Yeager, KY. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) or Bluegrass Care Navigators (Bluegrass Hospice) of Lexington, KY.
