John Airmet

February 2, 1938 — October 6, 2022

John Douglas (Jack) Airmet III, beloved husband, father, grandfather (and soon to be great-grandfather), brother, uncle and friend passed away peacefully, surrounded by family on October 6, 2022, in American Fork, at the age of 84.

Jack was born February 2, 1938, in Salt Lake City, to John Douglas and Viola Burt Airmet, and had two younger brothers Steve and Dave. He grew up in the Avenues and South Salt Lake, graduating from Granite High School in 1956, where he made many lifelong friends and enjoyed sports, playing basketball, football, and running track, and being student body president. In track, he was All-State in the 440 yard dash, which earned him a track scholarship to the University of Utah. He graduated from the U in 1962, with a B.S. in Business. He served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from 1958-1960 in the Gulf States Mission, which included all of Texas, Louisiana, and half of Mississippi. After graduating from college, he worked first in Salt Lake City and then in Detroit for two years for the Ford Motor Company. However, Jack spent most of his career in commercial real estate.

Upon returning to Salt Lake, he met Kathy Rex, and they married in the Salt Lake Temple on December 14, 1967. They raised their family in Holladay and Sandy, and after retirement moved to American Fork. They were blessed with three wonderful and amazing children, Diane (Jim Haslam), Mary Ann (Aaron Rose) and John (Jennie Prince), and fifteen beautiful and treasured grandchildren, with one great grandchild on the way, as well as three grandsons-in-law and one granddaughter- in-law.

Jack was a loving and supportive husband, father, and grandfather. He was always involved in his children's lives, coaching their sports teams, taking them on many family camping trips, and especially encouraging them in their church activities. He was a positive, kind, and loving man, who felt that every day was a new adventure. He was always there for all of his family, he is the rock of our family, and he will be deeply missed. He demonstrated his testimony and his complete faith in Christ in the way he lived and served in many church callings. After retirement Jack and Kathy served a proselyting mission in Oklahoma from 2003-2004 and later as service missionaries at the Special Needs Seminary at the Dan Peterson School in American Fork.
