Jack grew up on his parent's dairy farm on Hornby Island and moved to Port Alberni in 1957. Former owner and operator of Greenwood Contractors, Jack spent most of his working life in logging, in and around the West Coast and it remained a large part of his life even after his retirement in 1990. He loved the outdoors and enjoyed spending time with friends and family at the float cabin in Kildonan, or on his boat the Sailorfish II. Jack was also a member of the local tractor club and could be seen in the parade driving his Ford tractor.
