The Life of Jack Hayworth
Hayworth spent her time in Congress focusing on fiscal matters. She supported the cut, cap and balance budget bill while opposing further gun control measures.
After having spent time as a catcher with Nashville and Shreveport, he joined Detroit for 14 games to provide backup for starting catcher Cochrane against left-handed pitchers.
Early Life and Education
Jack Hayworth was born in Mechanicsville, West Virginia in 1927. At high school in Spencer he participated in both baseball and football; then attended Oak Ridge Military Academy under Earle Holt’s coaching where his strong, accurate arm led him to be more effective as a catcher than as a pitcher.
After spending time at Nashville and Shreveport, Hayworth earned a spot on Toledo Tigers Double-A team in 1929. While his playing time increased significantly, his hitting abilities remained subpar.
Hayworth made his baseball debut during World War II when he signed with the depleted St. Louis Browns of the American Association. Later he also served as backup to Milwaukee Brewers (American Association) and Rochester (International League).
Nan Hayworth is among 87 Republican freshman Congress members that are newcomers, each learning their respective rules for bill drafting and debating as well as how to vote (members use an electronic system that uses red dots to indicate when votes have been called).
She identifies as conservative, though not Tea Partyer; her interests skew to limited government and she would support repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Additionally, she represents Mount Kisco Medical Group which has grown over time amid national consolidation trends for family-run medical practices.
Hayworth is survived by her two sons, Jim and Gary of Purdon; daughters Jill Stone and Shelby Phillips; Chris Hines and Jenine Fitch as stepchildren; as well as five grandchildren. A memorial visitation will take place Tuesday from 6 to 8 p.m. at Griffin-Roughton Funeral Home.
Achievement and Honors
Hayworth was a member of Screen Actors Guild (SAG), winning numerous awards for her performances. Additionally, she received both the Presidential Medal of Freedom and Kennedy Center Honor for her contributions to arts.
Hayworth’s family and supporters crowded into her office hallway on her first day at the Capitol to eat soggy deli sandwiches and indulge in sugary cookies while straining to catch a glimpse of her on C-Span.
Hayworth is a freshman Republican Congress member representing the Tea Party-backed class of 87 newcomers. She embraces their philosophy of small government and opposes bailouts for banks and automakers; in addition, she stands firm against repeal of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” and the DREAM Act as well as serving on advisory boards of IKS Health and Bedford Physicians Risk Retention Group.
Jack was an active member of the Franklin congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses and an advocate for biblical truth and Jesus Christ. His friends and family look forward to the day described in John 5:28-29 when they will see Jack again.
Hayworth is a centrist who favors small government but does not share many Tea Party policies such as repealing “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell,” the DREAM Act or abortion rights. She opposes abortion and has strong opinions regarding gay rights but remains open to marriage between a man and woman; furthermore she strongly backs military service while upholding religious freedom – her personal life has been plagued by affairs with married men who she later had an intimate relationship with.
