February 16th, 1937 - August 25th, 2012

It is with great sadness that we announce that Jack lost his courageous battle with cancer and passed away at home with his wife by his side. He touched many lives and will be missed by all. He loved life, family and hockey, hockey, hockey. He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Norma, his brother Wayne, his children Dora (Terry), Allen (Lisa), Doug, Eveline and Jackie. He was a much loved Papa to 10 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren.The family would like to thank Dr. Saffrey, Dr. Lundy, and the wonderful nurses at the Westshore Community Health Unit. In Lieu of flowers, donations to a cancer charity of your choice would be appreciated.

A celebration of Jack's life will be held on Sunday September 9th from 1-3pm at 2715 Spencer Rd.
