Jack L. Proctor

June 4, 1939 ~ September 27, 2018 (age 79)

Jack L. Proctor, 79, of Calhoun, died Thursday, September 27, 2018 at his home. He was born in Floyd County, GA on June 4, 1939. He was preceded in death by his wife, Wanda Kay Wilbanks Proctor; his mother, Clara May Howerton Proctor; and his daughter, Nancy Proctor.


Jack was a well-known Master Mechanic. He grew up around garages and mechanics during his early years. He learned the trade by disassembling carburetors, transmissions, and engines, and reassembling them. Prior to establishing his own business, Proctor’s Garage, in 1970, he worked as a truck mechanic for Roy Davis Chevrolet. Jack enjoyed specializing in what no one else wanted to do or working on a project that everyone said couldn’t be done. That led him to become the legend he was. During his life he enjoyed his work, dirt track racing, Jeeping, traveling around the country, and of course, shop talk with his many friends and customers.


He leaves behind his sons and daughters-in-law, Shawn and Erin Proctor, Gary and Tina Proctor, Jackie Proctor, and Jeff and Tiffany Proctor; his daughter and son-in-law, Shae and Brandon Bishop; grandchildren, Wyatt, Corbin, and Codi Bishop, Jack and Jenna Proctor, and Christopher and Taylor Proctor Chavez; brother-in-law, David and Nancy Wilbanks, and their son Zachary; aunt and uncle, Bill and Frances Proctor; and a cousin, Linda Locklear and family.
