Mr. Partlow, age 73, loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, known to his family as "Pa," passed away Monday, June 30, 2014.
Born on July 25, 1940 to the late Samuel Anderson and Alma Rebecca Lannom Partlow, he enjoyed his early childhood days in "The Glade" with his friends and family. He was a 1958 graduate of Lebanon High School, a 1963 graduate of John A. Gupton College of Mortuary Science and a member of College Hills Church of Christ.
Mr. Partlow established Partlow Funeral Chapel in 1979, fulfilling a lifetime of compassion and service. Jackie enriched so many lives; whether he was taking care of others, traveling with friends or simply putting a smile on someone's face with a handshake or a big hug. But of all his accomplishments, his greatest was his family, which he referred to as "his little bunch."
He is survived by his beloved wife of 50 years, Linda Partlow; daughter, Jnae R. Partlow; son, Jason Partlow and his wife, Kathy; grandchildren, Ashley Blair Greer and her husband, Michael, Hunter Lee Reynolds, Jack Anderson Partlow, Grant Alexander Partlow; great-grandchildren, Samuel "Critter" Paxton Greer and Pollyanna "Little Miss" Rose Greer; and many special friends.
Jackie's family would like to express special thanks to the staff at The Pavilion for all their love, care and support and special friend and cardiologist, Dr. Tom McRae and his wonderful staff.
In lieu of flowers, the Partlow family requests contributions be made to the "Jackie Partlow Fund" at Cumberland University, 1 Cumberland Square, Lebanon, TN 37087. Partlow Funeral Chapel is in charge of arrangements, 615-444-7007, obit line 615-444-7700, partlowchapel.com.
