John Walter “Jack” Sprecher, 82, formerly of Algoma, Kewaunee, and Milwaukee, WI passed away after battling Alzheimer’s disease on Tuesday, March 14th, 2023, in Wauwatosa. He was born December 24, 1940, in Milwaukee to Walter and Catherine Sprecher.
He is survived by his sister Judith “Judi” (James) Kaemmerling; his children Diana (Sprecher) Knight, Ron, Amy (John) Kelly and Anne; his grandchildren Nicole Pecha, Amanda Kelly, Mario Hart, and Noah Kelly.
He was preceded in death by the love of his life, fiancée, Gale Alexander.
Jack grew up in Milwaukee, WI and enjoyed many interests. Most notably was his life-long love of traditional Blues music. As ‘Jack Jr. Black’, he went on to become a prominent member of the Blues community as a local radio DJ for several decades. He traveled the country to visit various musical festivals where he met amazing blues artists. He loved sharing these stories with anyone who would listen. When he retired, to Northern Wisconsin, he pursued his interest in local sports. Under the moniker, ‘Jack O' Diamonds’, he became a familiar face at baseball games while maintaining the statewide website for the WI Amateur Baseball League. Jack spent his free time collecting records, listening to music, watching plenty of hockey and baseball games, spending time with his family and swiftly walking outdoors at local parks.
In lieu of flowers please direct any donations to the Alzheimer’s Association (act.alz.org).
Visitation will be Saturday, March 18, 2023 at Schinderle Funeral Home in Algoma, from 10:00 AM until time of the funeral service at 11:00 AM with Ken Kinstetter officiating. Burial to follow in the Evergreen Cemetery.
