Former Lubbock Mayor Jack Strong dies at 92

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The former Lubbock mayor who played a huge role in transportation across the Hub City has died.

Jack Strong served as mayor from 1962 to 1964. He died Sunday at the age of 92.

He was a member of the Lubbock Lions Club, the UMC Foundation Board and a supporter of Children's Miracle Network.

A park in South Lubbock is named after Strong who oversaw the planning and start of construction of Loop 289 during his time as mayor.

Current mayor Tom Martin says he will be greatly missed, "Jack and Mary Nell have been involved in about every aspect of life in Lubbock for more than 50 years. Particularly during the 1950s, 60s, 70s and 80s. They were active in so many community activities and affairs we couldn't list them all if we had ten minutes."

The funeral for Strong will be Tuesday at 2 p.m. at First Methodist Church.
