  1. Will always remember Jack for the gentleman he was and the many laughs we had fishing and pheasant hunting.

    Hopefully there are no limits on the fish catch where he is now.

  2. TJ loved Salmon fishing and I consider myself honored to have fished and hunted with him. We had some oil patch business dealings as well, but our true affinity was the fish patch.

    Dennis

    I am sorry to hear of your Father’s passing

    I just met Mr. Hall, and we talked about the Manitoba discovery. Also in that conversation I was suprised to hear he remembered Dennis’s lab rabbit, from micro biology.
    He must of had an amazing memory.
    Truly an amazing man.

    Uncle Jack was an amazing man who always had a great story over the campfire. I will always remember the smile he had on his face when I was late for my wedding and he walked me down the aisle and said you’re just like “Jo”. Thank you Uncle Jack we will miss you … Love to all the family, Theresa, Roman and Mark Kezman.

    Dennis and family, sorry to learn of your Dad’s passing and know that there are a host of memories that will last forever of hunting, fishing and doing business in the oil patch. Still think of the ’59 Chev he allowed a bunch of teenagers to drive and how he had room for one more on hunting trips. Best regards to your Mom and sisters.
