On Sunday, April 4, 2021, Jack passed away at the age of 82 after a short illness that was too much to bear for anyone who knew him. He was a firefighter for 32 years, retiring as Platoon Chief to become as busy as ever for the past three decades putting anyone's needs ahead of his own. Everyone's favourite "uncle", bar patron, club member, errand runner, neighbourhood chat, and most of all, beloved husband, father, and grandfather, Jack will be missed more than we can express. Vi, his wife of 56 years, kids Todd and Julie, and grandson Ryan hope he has all the vacuums, lawnmowers, and running water he wants where he is now. Cremation has taken place.
