    I worked with Jack at the Canada Permanent Trust Company on Barrington Street in Halifax in 1972/1973. At one time I was his secretary and during the time I was there he was a pleasure to work with. I recall one afternoon after he had a lengthy lunch with his friend Jack Quackenbush, they were shooting elastics and laughing – they taught me how to shoot an elastic further. A fond memory. I have lived in Calgary since 1974 and did not know he was living here. It would have been nice to contact him.

    My sincere condolences to your family.

    Ellen Stewart (nee Macnab)

    Dear Aunt Jean,
    Thinking of you today as you put Uncle Jack to rest. Although there is much distance between our families, fond memories and laughter are what I will be remembering today and always. I can still see uncle Jack teaching the girls a magic trick with string and the look on their faces when the string disappeared! We love you.
    Michele, Morgan and Dana
