It is with great sadness we announce the passing of David Jack.

David was born in Larder Lake, Ontario one of 6 boys and 3 girls. Predeceased by his parents Arnold and Janet and brothers Sonny and Hank. David leaves behind his partner Leah, brothers Melvin, Randy and Alan, sisters Lucy, Edith and Jean, nieces, nephews and many good friends from Larder Lake, Calgary and Courtenay. David will also be missed by his extended family, Leah’s children Randy and Karen, brother Brian, sisters Gail and Judy and brother in-law Rick.

David worked in the mines in Ontario before moving to Calgary where he lived for 18 years forming many long lasting friendships. In the early 90’s David moved to Courtenay to be near his brother, Hank. He worked as a painter by trade but was knowledgeable and enjoyed all aspects of the construction business. David loved the outdoors. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, camping, panning for gold or just going on a nature walk.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC in David’s memory.
