Nov. 1, 1920 - Nov. 17, 2012
After 92 years Jack moved to his next adventure, fully aware of the love, hugs and goodbyes expressed by many loved ones.
Many thanks to Dr. Howard and staff at St. Joseph's and Casa Loma. Jack leaves behind, Enid his wife of 64 years, four children and spouses, seven grandchildren and their spouses, twelve great-grandchildren, and many relatives in Canada and England.
Born in Gwelo Southern Rhodesia, Jack moved to England in 1930. He was a "home boy" who at sixteen was sent to work on farms in Ontario, moving west with the drifters and hobos, dreaming of a cowboy life. From 1938-45 Jack served the Loyal Edmonton Regiment in Sicily, Italy, France, Belgium, Germany and Holland. He was our family's war hero. He worked for the Alberta Department of Highways starting as a surveyor and retiring in 1975 as Highway Inspector. He loved his job and built Alberta highways that are his legacy. Jack and Enid lived in many small Alberta towns before settling in Lethbridge. They also lived in Quebec and Penticton where they remained for 27 years before moving to Comox, making friends all along the way.
An extraordinary citizen, husband, father, grandfather and great-grand-father and supporter of the Baha'i Faith, Jack was a precious human being who will be dearly missed by all.
