Jack N. Lincoln died April 15, 2013.
He was born in Atlanta on Feb. 19, 1924. He was the son of Sam and Ida Lincoln. Jack was full of life, and no one that ever met him forgot him. He attended Boys High and Georgia Tech and was a Yellow Jacket through and through; he kept The Varsity in business.
Jack was a production manager and eventually the owner of D’Lang Fashions and loved his buying trips to New York. He made friends wherever he went. While working in the 1960s, he attended John Marshall Law School at night and graduated no. 2 in his class. He had a second career as a lawyer and mediator for the Justice Department and the Post Office. There is not a child that he met at the OK Cafe or the AA Synagogue who does not know “where dogs park their cars.”
He was predeceased by his beloved wife of 52 years, Zelda Chanin Lincoln, and is survived by his three children, Sheryl Lincoln (Peter Knight) of Washington, D.C., Linda Diamond (Michael Diamond) of Marietta and Barbara “Boo” Lincoln (Gary Rosenshein) of Atlanta; his grandchildren, Michael Knight (Philadelphia), Sam Knight (Washington, D.C.), Sarah and Benjamin Diamond (Marietta); and grand-dogs, Stanley and Banjo. Also surviving is his sister, Rita Joel, and many beloved nieces and nephews.
The family greatly appreciates and has much gratitude for the loving care of his caretakers Sonya Wright and Celeste Smith. Please sign online guestbook at edressler.com. The funeral was held graveside at Arlington Memorial Park on Wed., April 17, 2013, at 1:30 p.m. with Rabbi Neil Sandler officiating.
