Obituary for John "Jack" Hevener

December 5, 2021
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


John "Jack" Hevener passed away peacefully on December 5, 2021. He was 85 years old. Jack was born in Philadelphia to Margaret and John Hevener. He is survived by his brother, Ronald Hevener (Marcia); several nieces and nephews; and many great nieces and nephews. Jack is preceded in death by his sister, Dolores Monroe.

He worked at the Philadelphia Civic Center until the day it no longer stood. Jack will be remembered as one of the most caring and generous men you had the privilege to know. His love was unconditional. He gave selflessly to all, and supported many charities - even when he didn't have it to give. He was a religious man who loved country music.

Jack loved baseball! Attending games, visiting different stadiums, collecting memorabilia, going to conventions & signings - he loved it all! His memorabilia collection is astonishing! He could talk baseball all day. While his love of baseball dates back to the Philadelphia Athletics, there is no doubt that Jack was a Phanatic! He loved all things Phillies, and his favorite player Robin Roberts.

Relatives and friends are invited to Jack's Life Celebration on Saturday, December 11, 2021 from 10:00AM to 12:00PM at John F. Givnish Funeral Home, 10975 Academy Road, Philadelphia, PA 19154. A prayer service will begin at 12 noon. Interment will follow at Mount Peace Cemetery.
