Jack Yonge, who spent his business career in real estate and investments in Texas, died June 28 at 92. He graduated from the University of Texas where he was a loyal member of Delta Kappa Epsilon. Jack often said the brothers he met at Omega Chi became dear friends for life.


Active in the Episcopal Church, Jack was a talented vocalist who was known to sing both reverent, prayerful hymns as well as great American show tunes. He especially liked “Fly Me to the Moon” and other Frank Sinatra songs.


Jack loved to swim and made it a point to spend time swimming laps every day. After settling in Brownsville, Texas, he eventually moved to South Padre Island where he swam almost every day in the ocean.


He is survived by his sister and nieces and nephews.
