Jack passed away at Courtenay, British Columbia on Wednesday, October 31st, 2012 at the age of 91.

Survived by his son Jack van Zwietering (Alice), Ann Stroomer (Dirk), Jane Boulanger (Terry), ten grandchildren, seventeen great-grandchildren.

Jack was born in Bovenkerk the Netherlands on August 30th, 1921. He became a Canadian Citizen November 23rd, 1959. He worked for School District 47 creating our school fields, landscaping, and playgrounds many of us have enjoyed and still do over the years.

Dad loved to fish reminiscing old fish stories over a cold beer or glass of wine. Dad enjoyed his garden, sharing his flowers and vegetables with family, friends and neighbors and spent the most of his retired years in the Comox Valley.

Dad lived his life to the fullest and passed away peacefully of old age.

Always loved and remembered.
