Jack Colin Arledge

April 21, 1937 — September 30, 2021

Jack C. Arledge, 84, of Durham and formerly of Asheville, passed away Thursday, September 30, 2021, in Croasdaile Village Retirement Community.

Born in Polk County, Jack’s work with the NC Department of Transportation took him to Asheville where he met Edie and her sons in 1969. Jack will be remembered by his sense of humor, infectious smile and as an energetic greeter at Biltmore Church in Arden and Grey Stone Church in Durham. He loved conversing with folks and would chat with anyone who would stop for a moment.

Jack was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Edith Hook Scott Arledge. He is survived by his stepsons Stephen J. Scott (Janet) of Durham and Douglas J. Scott of Roxboro; a granddaughter, Lauren Scott of Atlanta, GA; a sister, Patsy Williams (Ken) and a brother, Donald Arledge of Mill Spring; a brother-in-law, Johnny Hook of Lexington, SC; a sister-in-law Bettie Hook of Ravenel, SC; and many loving nieces and nephews.

A service of remembrance will be held on Saturday, October 9, 2021, at 1:30 pm in Few Chapel at Croasdaile Village Retirement Community. In lieu of flowers, a tribute gift may be made to either the Durham Rescue Mission online at or by mailing to PO Box 11368 Durham, NC 27703, or the charity of the donor’s choice.

The family would like to express its heartfelt appreciation to the staff and caregivers at the Croasdaile Village Pavilion for the care they provided over the past five weeks.
