September 03, 1930 – March 11, 2010
It is with heavy hearts that Debbie and family announces the passing of Stanley Jackson, who was called home on Thursday, March 11, 2010 at the age of 79.
Stanley lived his life to the fullest. He was one of the first owner operators for D. Armstrong -United VanLines and worked with them for 35 years. This allowed him and his wife to travel nearly all of Canada and USA. He was a great inspiration to all that he knew. He always had a story to share, and was always willing to lend a helping hand. Through-out the last year, his health declined. And he was diagnosed with a number of different health problems.
He leaves behind three wonderful grandchildren Casey (Steve), Courtney & Cody. As well as the newest addition to our family, his great grandson Kayle Reinhart. Along with Randy Pickering, Lee Pinder, numerous nieces, nephews, extended family, neighbours and many friends. He was pre-deceased by his loving and caring wife Gerry of thirty four years, Mother Ruth McNabb of Beausejour Manitoba, and Father Stewart Jackson who was born in Ireland.
A Celebration of Stan’s life will be held at MCINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W.) on Saturday, April 10, 2010 at 11:00 am. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. We would also like to thank all the support staff at the Southwood Nursing Home (Fairview Unit) for their on-going care, support, and love as well as Dr. Quall.
In living memory of Stan Jackson, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Telephone: (403) 243-8200.
Still Trucking From Above
I have a warm and friendly feeling as I think of you each day.
And I wish we could visit again, but you’re many miles away.
I’ve heard you spin many a yarn and even say “you bet”
A better person I’ve become, because one day we had met.
The Lord has blessed us with a t ruck driver, which we have all
come to love.
God’s hand was always watching him and sometimes even driving
He travels freely now over heavens rolling hills to its shining sea.
He was a special man God made just for you and me.
As heaven and earth now divide us, the special memories of you
bring us near.
The common things of life we shared, laughter and sometimes a
heart felt tear.
So, father in heaven hear my prayer when I think of our beloved
one each day.
Please protect our husband, father and friend, while he’s many,
many miles away
