Jack Moon passed away on September 7, 2018, the age of 93. He was born on October 2, 1924 to Travis Lee and Marie Shaughnessy Moon in Spokane, WA.

He was in the class of 1943 at Gonzaga High School in Spokane and joined the Army Air Corp in February, 1943.

Jack flew combat as a gunner on a B-29 with the 315th Bomb Wing. He and his crew were on the last mission of WWII, August 14 and 15, 1945.
