April 17, 1927 – June 5, 2013
Jack passed peacefully at home with family in attendance. Predeceased by parents Lydia and Adam, brothers Donald and Bobby and sister Corrine.
Loved and missed by wife Carol, son Douglas (Linda) of Campbell River, daughters Katherine (Robin) of Tswawassen, Erin of Lund, two granddaughters Jessica of Whiterock and Lindsay of Campbell River, grandson Spencer of Vancouver, sister Marjorie of Port Alberni, and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews.
The family wish to thank Palliative Care nurses Barbara and Marlene and the home care workers, and particularly Dani Holmes, Jack’s grand-niece, for their help and support during those last difficult days, as well as Dr.’s Carswell and LeBeuff.
Jack’s was a life well lived and we will all miss his quiet smile and wonderful stories. He loved nature and was at home in the wilderness, on the land or water and especially in the air.
The family invite his many friends and acquaintances to join us at the Maritime Heritage Centre at 4pm on Sunday July 7th to share stories and memories.
In lieu of flowers the family request donations be made to the Campbell River Hospital Foundation for the ICU and Emergency departments.
