Jack Strachan

NOVEMBER 20, 1922 – NOVEMBER 2, 2012

Jack Strachan died peacefully on Nov 2nd, 2012, just a few weeks shy of his 90th birthday. Jack was born and raised in Glasgow, Scotland. He served 6 years with the Royal Air force during World War II.

In 1949, he met the love of his life, Mae, and they married in 1951. In 1957, Jack and Mae packed their two boys and all their possessions and immigrated to Canada. They settled in Oshawa, Ontario, where Jack was employed by General Motors for 25 years. Jack and Mae retired to the wonderful Comox Valley in 1984. It was here, that Jack pursued his love of tennis, golf, skiing, biking and playing guitar with the “Heart Strings”.

Jack is survived by his loving wife Mae, sons Ian (Patti) and Doug (Noreen), granddaughters Courtney (Jeff),

Jessica, Kelly and his precious great-granddaughter Peyton.

We would like to extend a special thanks to the staff of Cumberland Lodge, who took care of Jack for two years with grace and dignity.

A Celebration of Life for Jack was held at Stevenson Place on November 8th, 2012.
