Biography: John "Jack" Durange, Jr., 58, of Littlestown, passed away on April 4, 2021 surrounded by his loving family.  Jack was born on Feb 22, 1963 in Baltimore to parents, Jack Durange, Sr and Dakota Sumers.  He loved electronics and entered the International Union of Elevator Contructors in 1981 where he was a mentor, colleague and friend to all.  Over the many years of working as an Elevator Mechanic, Jack rose to the position of Adjuster, working on many notable projects.  His crowning professional achievement was being hand selected and sent to Manhattan, NY where he spent two years helping to adjust the elevators in the 9/11 Memorial Museum and the J-Bank Observation Deck elevators in the Freedom Tower.

Jack was known for his sense of humor, infectious smile, good advice and kind compassionate spirit.  He was a father figure to many individuals outside of his own children. He also had a passion for working on tractors, collecting lighthouses and spending his free time with his family and dogs.  More often than not, you could find him working on multiple projects around the house.  He was truly a "Jack of all trades."

Jack married Michelle (Pickett) Durange, the love of his life in 1983 who survives him.  Jack is also survived by his three children:  John Durange, III and his partner, Nicole; Justin Durange & wife, Heather and Samantha Dell & husband, Joe; as well as his 9 grandchildren; his mother, Dakota; his sisters, Maria and Laura and a host of nieces and nephews. Jack was predeceased by his father, Jack.

Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Thursday, April 8, at 11 A.M. at St. Aloysius Catholic Church, Littlestown with The Rev. C. Anthony Miller Celebrant. Interment will be Rest Haven Cemetery, Hanover.  The family insists that donations in support of Jack's favorite charity be made to The 9/11 Memorial and Museum @ in lieu of flowers.  Online condolences may be shared on

My sincere condolences to the entire family. I did not have the chance to get to know Jack as well as I had wanted but, what I do know he was one of the best. I had often heard stories of what Jack had done not only for his family but for many others as well. He definitely had set the standards and will be sorely missed.
Michelle, you have been there for us all when we have had loss's of our own, please remember we are all there for you as well. My heart goes out to you and your family,
God Bless, Rest in Peace Jack.
