Brigham, John K. (Jack) 8/4/1924 – 5/8/2019 Dexter, MI.
He was an outstanding leader for the Boy Scouts of America. Jack first served as a Cub Scout Leader and then moved to Scout Master of Troop 477 in Dexter. In his over 60 years leading scouts in Dexter his troop honored close to 125 Eagle Scouts.
When his own children grew up and were married his “Boysies” (scouts) became such a big part of his life. Monday nights was scout night in the cabin that Jack and his scouts built called “the Eagles Nest”.
All the many scout camps every year were so important to him. He really enjoyed helping the scouts work on thousands of merit badges over the years. Jack, with his fellow scout leaders through the years, was dedicated to helping all scouts along on the Eagle Trail.
Another highlight Jack enjoyed each year was the Christmas party with games, a favorite was called “the object in the middle”, as well as a reading of “The Night before Christmas”.
