SCOTT – John “Jack”

April 13, 1911 – August 6, 2009

Jack was born in Belfast, Ireland and moved to Edmonton in 1912. He later moved to Mayerthorpe where he and Peggy farmed their homestead. Jack served with RCASC until 1945 when he went overseas to serve in England and North West Europe. Upon his return Jack and Peggy raised their family in Red Deer. Jack worked as mechanic for eleven years and continued his career as a service manager for American Motors Canada until retiring in Winnipeg. Jack and Peggy loved to travel and enjoyed telling family and friends stories of their adventures. Jack was always happiest when surrounded by his loved ones. He had a huge heart and the wisdom to give good advice. Jack’s later days were spent at Churchill House in the Colonel Belcher.

    I was sorry I was unable to get to Jack’s funeral. Jack was one of the first people I met when I joined Good Companions 50 Plus Club where we both belonged to the Community Kitchen Program. We had so much fun in that program. Jack was teased a lot about his attempts to cook, but he took it all in good part and gave as good as he got. He was such a friendly good-humoured man and so considerate and helpful to other people. He instantly responded if anyone needed help or the Club needed a volunteer. He was missed when he was no longer able to come along and many of us have tried to keep up with how he was doing. We were all sorry to hear of his passing. He lived a full and interesting life but it is always sad when the end finally comes. I hope his passing was a quiet and peaceful transition.
