To me and many others, Jack was a true working class hero. He made us proud to be working people and even prouder to be trade unionists. He inspired us to always do the right thing for working people, to fight the good fight and to not sweat the small stuff. He gave us strength when we were weak; he gave us courage when we felt fear; he gave us direction when we were lost.

Jack was a unique trade union leader - equally comfortable having coffee with loggers in a remote camp or having tea with the Queen of England. He had many great leadership attributes, but I think that his greatest attribute was his willingness to surround himself with the best people available. He treated his staff with respect, and they in turn were loyal to him for the entirety of their careers.

I had the honour of sitting on two Provincial Negotiating Committees under Jack's leadership and was constantly amazed at the respect he had from his adversaries. he understood what working people needed, but he also understood business. He had a great deal of common sense and found solutions when none seemed available. That is what generated the respect.

I will miss his humour, his humility, his gentleness, his wisdom and his commitment to the betterment of working people.

I would like to extend my heartfelt condolences to Deborah and the family. My sense of loss is great; your loss must be profound.

Joining IWA Local 1-80 in 1980 I very quickly learned about Jack Munroe, his leadership ability and efforts to help improve the lives of working people. I will always remember him as the greatest leader the IWA ever had. My sincere condolences to his wife Deborah and his family. He will be sorely missed by all.

Jack was the Regional President of the IWA when I worked for the IWA New Westminster local as editor of the union's paper. I had an opportunity to sit in IWA-Industry bargaining in 1970's for a few days as an observer. He was a great negotiator and was not afraid to stand up to industry bosses. He was one of the referees when I was appointed by the British Columbia government as Chair of the BC Council of Human Rights. He will be greatly missed

Jack Munro was friend of mine and a man who I respected more than any man I have ever meant. Jack did more for working people in BC and across Canada than any other Labour Leader to date Jack will never be forgotten by me and all of the Officers, Staff, Board Members and the membership of (IWA)USW Local 1-1937 We offer our most heart felt Condolences to Deborrah Jacks amazing wife and Life Partner.
