John “Jake” McLoughlin

On July 28th in 1928 the world became a brighter place. On that day John “Jake” McLoughlin entered this world as the son of Margaret and John McLoughlin. He was a descendant of the Comox Valley pioneering Grieve and Parkin families.

Jake spent his entire life in the Comox Valley working at various jobs most notably Seale and Thomson, Nib Johnson Motors and Barrs Mobile Homes.

Jake caught the eye of Christina Odebust. That gleam turned into a 59 year marriage resulting in 4 children Daryl, Leslie (Steve), Wayne (Michele) and Brad (Jen), 7 grandchildren Christopher (Kari), Tyler, Ashley, Austein, Tristan, Hilary and Lucas and 2 great-grandchildren, Tenley and Teegan who are now living in the Comox Valley, Willow Point, Winnipeg and Denman Island.

Jake loved to golf and was the captain of the Sunnydale Golf Course for many years. When health forced him to retire from golf Jake ramped up his hobby of baking bread and cinnamon buns with a passion. He was a man who loved to spend time with his family, had a big smile, great sense of humour and a huge heart that helped countless people throughout his life.

His departure from this world on February 10th has left a hole in the hearts of his family, friends and neighbours that will be missed forever. Grandpa loved us all. The family wishes to thank Dr. Reggler as well as the South Team Home Care Nurses and Home Care assistants for their outstanding compassionate care. Cremation has taken place. Jake had requested that there not be a service.

We love you Dad and we hope that you are winning big time at the meat draw in the sky. In lieu of flowers please a donation to the charity of your choice would be appreciated.
