Jack Milliorn, 87, passed away July 2, 2019.  He was born August of 1931 in Pendleton, OR to Tom Milliorn and Ethel Speilman. He graduated from Pendleton High School and then joined the Navy where he served 2 years as a radioman. After leaving the Navy he joined the Pendleton Fire Department and served until 1961.  Jack then moved to Richland, WA where he worked for GE.  He then went on to work for Battelle until he retired as manager of Craft Services in 1993.

Jack met the love of his life, Dolores Tesinsky when they were both working for GE.  They were married in May of 1963.

Jack and Dolores spent many fun filled weekends and vacations waterskiing, RVing in the Blue Mountains, golfing, and growing bountiful gardens.  Jack also loved to write wonderful stories of all their adventures.  One of his many passions was being a ham radio operator, as well as playing the organ/electric piano and singing along.  Another passion of his was having several good books to read wherever he went. 

 Jack was preceded in death by his parents.  He is survived by his wife Dolores, sisters Donna (Paul) Nielson, Darla (Keith) Swenson, Daphna Belden, Molly Johnson, and Glenda Battershell (David), sister-in-law Shirley (Duane) Menghini and numerous nieces and nephews as well as grand nieces and nephews.

  • I was sorry to hear about Jack my condolences to the family, I am out of town and can't make the service but I wanted to write something. Jack hired me at Battelle back in 1973 and I recently retired from there after almost 40 years of service. Jack gave me and my family the opportunity for a better life as a result of working for Battelle. He was a great mentor to me and I looked forward to our meetings . I started working cutting the grass, a craftsman and at the end of my career I was also a Manager of Crafts Services and actually was in Jack's old office when I retired. He helped me and many others through our careers and he will be greatly missed by all.

  • Jack, I will remember you for your work and support at Battelle and your long hobby of Ham radio. You did a lot for Ham Radio as one of the founders of the SSRA. I think there is only one remaining charter member. Thank you Shipmate for your service in the US Navy . Thank you for being friend of almost 50 years. Dolores, thank you for sharing Jack with all of us, so sorry for his going. God Bless and be with you.
