John “Jack” Edward Tweedy, 92, of Cut Bank peacefully entered eternal rest on March 14, 2017.

Memorial services will be Thursday, July 20, at 2:00 PM at the Cut Bank Elk’s Lodge this includes service by the Elks, then graveside service with military honorary, and a reception following.

John was born December 28, 1924 in Shelby to Samuel and Lottie Tweedy.  He had one brothers and two sisters.  John enlisted in the US Navy and served in World War II. He began his journey as a MSU Bobcat Alumni with a bachelor degree in science.    John and his wife gave generously and continuously to Cut Bank Scholars for scholarships for upcoming graduates. Jack was well known, respected, and loved by all.

"For this one Farmer the worries are now over,

lie down and rest your head.

Take off the work gloves, put them down,

all the farm duties can be at rest now.

Home is now heaven; no more must you wait,

your legacy lives on, your love of the land, and we will close the gate".

He was a strong business man, hard-working farmer. A leader in the Agricultural Industry. Farming wasn't just a job to Jack, this was who he was.

A devoted husband and genuinely a proud father. Jack and Torchy raised their daughter Amy Jo; the love of their life, from there, their family together only grew, with their extensive involvement and love for two grandchildren as well for five great grandchildren.

Jack was very proud of his family and friends and enjoyed their company and visits.

During downtime from the farm Jack would find pleasure in traveling, golfing and many social events with Torchy by his side. He also was an excellent cook; he enjoyed cooking for Elk's dinner events.

At home for Jack was him enjoying sports on tv; generally his favorite was college football. He still found himself getting out of the house and driving to the farm, also tinkering around in his yard and garage. There was never a shortage of books in Jacks and Torchy's home; as they both enjoyed reading books; love mystery and history novels seemed to be Jacks go to for a read. If there wasn't a book in his hand there was a paper and pencil as he steadily worked on crossword puzzles. Jack was a Boy Scout leader, an honorary Elk Lodge life member and in 1997 became a Noble Shrine.

Any that knew Jack knows he was a very patient and forgiving man with a bit of Irish Spunk.

Jack will be dearly missed by his community, friends and family. He was a very important part of many people's lives; very important part of his family unity.

"God saw you getting tired,

Staying was not to be

So he put his arms around you,

and whispered,

Come to Me

Although we loved you dearly

we could not make you stay,

that day... that day

had to be today

A Golden heart stopped beating

a hard working farmer at rest

God broke our hearts to prove to us

He only takes the best"
