Jack “Jay” Donald Saggart Jr.
Jack “Jay” Donald Saggart Jr., age 63, of Branson, Missouri, passed away suddenly June 6, 2021. He entered this life May 29, 1958, in Kansas City, Missouri, the son of Jack Saggart Sr. and Mary (Slater) Saggart, who have preceded him in death. He was joined in marriage January 23, 2000, to Heidi (Bayburt) Bruders.
With a talent for creating beautiful arrangements, Jay served as a florist for 30 years; working in the Kansas City area, as well as Hilo, Hawaii and Fort Myers, FL before moving to the Branson area. He was a loving husband, proud dad and an animated grandpa. He lived life to the fullest, had a great sense of humor, the uncanny ability to strike up a conversation with anyone that he met; all while making them feel comfortable sharing their life story. He enjoyed traveling, playing golf, a nice glass of whiskey and a good cigar on occasion, and spending time with family and friends.
Jay is survived by his wife of 21 years, Heidi Saggart; three daughters: Courtney (John Worland) McCauley of Cameron, Missouri; Jessica (Alex) Amidjaya of Richmond, Virginia; and Nicole (Jeremy) Kliewer of Overland Park, Kansas; two sons: Hunter Bruders of Kansas City, Missouri, and Jack Donald Saggart III of Misawa, Japan; five grandchildren: Daniel, Savannah, Camden, Atlas, and Mathilda; two sisters: Jan (Dennis) Burkhart, and Michele Belson; and two step-siblings: Page Dickeson and John Dickeson.
