LEE – Jack

August 27, 1934 – June 2, 2011

Jack Lee of Calgary, passed peacefully away on Thursday, June 2, 2011, at the age of 76 years.

A true Albertan and proud Calgarian, Jack was born in Crossfield, AB, as the third child and second son of Charlie (Ho Shuit) Lee of Canton, China, and Mabel Lowe of Victoria, B.C. He is survived by his aunt, Lil Quan, of Victoria, B.C., and by his brother Raymond (Loretta) Lee and sister Ruby (George) Fong, both of Calgary. He is also survived by nephews Larry Fong and Brian Fong of Calgary, Brad (Eleanor) Lee, of Toronto, Mike (Kelly) Lee of Calgary, and niece Karen (Kevin) Tom of Madison, New Jersey, and their families.

Fondly known as “Uncle Jack” to his extended family and many friends, Jack worked for thirty-two years at the old post office in downtown Calgary and at the Harry Hays federal building before retiring in 1989. After retiring, he enjoyed his painting and good conversation, and his art was shared with many of his friends. Jack also loved sports, cheering for the Vancouver Canucks and the Calgary Stampeders. He was optimistic about life and when he passed away it was with hope in his heart.

  1. My sincere condolences on Jack’s passing.

    He had such a positive outlook on anything that life offered. When I worked at the Calgary Transit downtown office, I would watch for him, he would watch for me and we would take the opportunity to chat a bit. He would reminise about people from Crossfield both past and present. We always had lots to chat about, catch up on and he always stayed interested in everything about Crossfield.

    Jo Tennant- former Mayor Town of Crossfield (present Deputy Mayor Town of Crossfield)

    Shopping trips to the Market Mall just aren’t the same anymore! For quite a few years, after I retired and would walk to the Market Mall to shop, I would often find myself “spotted” by Jack, who would rush up, squeeze my arm and ask “What’s wrong with those Flames!?” or “What’s wrong with those Stampeders!?” After an animated discussion about the team of the day, Jack would always ask about our son, Scott, who played hockey as a youngster with his nephew Michael. Jack would bring me up to date on Michael’s activities and we would say “good bye” until the next encounter.

    I enjoyed our imprompt meetings and I am missing him!

    Dovell and I wish to express our deepest sympathies with all of Jack’s family. He always spoke warmly of you. He was a treasure!
