It seems like yesterday Jack, Donna and Jill were here in the north
hunting for Diamond willow and enjoying the great outdoors with family.
Jack may be gone from our sight but will always live on in our hearts
and minds. His zest for life and the twinkle in his eye when he talked
about Donna and his family are something I shall always remember. I had
the pleasure of travelling in Mexico with Jack, on the Dempster Highway
with the Ashdown clan and visiting Jack and Donna in the south. The man
had a keen eye for cute girls, a strong sense of good drink and a
passion for life with Donna that I have always envied. Gone but never
forgotten your adopted son from the north.

Although I only spent one very memorable evening with Jack, along with Donna and the Ashdown's, it will remain a very special one.

So sorry for the loss of this obviously much loved, fascinating and kind man. My heart goes out to Brian, Donna, Debbie and Fay.

Hold your memories close until you meet again...

Thinking of you all.

To Donna and Family:

My condolences to you all.
Jack was a kind man and was so helpful to my husband Mike when he went from trucking into real estate.
Jack always had a friendly greeting with interesting conversations any time our paths met over the years.
Good memories last for ever.

Sincerely

To the Ashdown and Kennedy families:

We were honored and blessed to know such a wonderful, caring, and sharing person as Jack. Even his artistry - creations by "Herbie John" - added to our quality of life as we marvelled at his creative ability.
He was a special person who welcomed us into his extended family and will always have a special spot in our hearts and minds.
