Jack Steven Sandberg

Jack Steven Sandberg, 62, passed away Thursday, December 22, 2022.  He was born May 28, 1960 in Atlanta, GA to the late Leroy and Edna Sandberg.  Jack was employed by Stingray’s and Arby’s. 

Jack had a love for Rock n Roll music and you would often find him singing and playing his guitar.  His happy place was sitting in the sunshine on the beach on Tybee Island.  He also loved watching his local sports teams, the Atlanta Falcons and Georgia Bulldogs.  Most importantly, Jack loved the Lord and he always knew where home was.  His favorite verse was Isaiah 40:31, “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run, and not be wary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his sister, Mary Goodman, and brothers, John Sandberg and Robert Sandberg.  

Surviving Jack are his daughter and son-in-law, Paige and John Shoemaker of Zebulon, GA, his ex-wives, Patty Miller, and Joyce Brook Ryan, nephews and niece, Chuck and Emma Wurtsbaugh, and Jason Wurtsbaugh, and Sabra Wurtsbaugh.  Also surviving are numerous other nieces, nephews, and his many friends at Arby’s, Stingray’s, and Tybee. 

Jack touched many lives in his lifetime and will be missed by many.

A Celebration of his life will be announced at a later date.

Jack, thank you for the memories that have been created throughout the years. I’ll forever remember the days of “hey Mike, how bout them dirty birds son?” To the days of watching you jam out on the guitar singing “MUDDDDDDYYYY WATER!!!”. I’m glad that after many years of not speaking, because neither of us had each other’s numbers. We were finally able to reconnect for the past 2. You’ll always be in my heart and mind. Miss you sir and tell Bobbie I said hello.
