John E. Lingo, Jr. September 15, 1930 - August 2, 2018

John E. Lingo, Jr. slipped the surly bonds of earth on Thursday, August 2, 2018 at the Masonic Village in Burlington, NJ. John (Jack) Lingo was born in 1930 in Camden, NJ. He graduated from Collingswood High School and was a standout football player and SJ High Hurdle Champion. He attended the Univ of Delaware and studied civil engineering. He then joined the United States Air Force where he served his country as a fighter pilot during the Korean War era and then as a member of the Reserves and the NJ Air National Guard. During that time, he took over the Lingo family flagpole business in Camden, NJ making him the 4th generation to do so. Not only was Jack an industry pioneer, but his passion for flying lead him to become a certified flight instructor so he could share his love of flying with all of his students. Later in life he renewed his love of the water and spent many wonderful days on his boat in the Chesapeake Bay with his wife. He was a member of the Willingboro Presbyterian Church, Quiet Birdman (QB), and Riverside Kiwanis Club.

Mr. Lingo is survived by his beloved wife Gail, his son Jeffrey Lingo and wife Donna, son Douglas Cook and wife Julie, and sons Bradford Lingo, Tyler Lingo and John Lingo; and grandson Jeffrey C Lingo along with seven other grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
