August 6, 1951 – May 1, 2011
Angels are around us and one went home on Sunday, May 1, 2011.
Jack is with his beloved twin Max, playing all the sports he was only able to watch and keep score. Born mentally challenged, no matter what his medical condition, with his sparkling blue eyes, he faced life. He taught those around him kindness, bravery, not to complain, how to laugh, and in any argument, he was always right.
Jack is survived by two sisters and a brother-in-law, Lorna Rae Wilton and Glenda and Murry Parson; nephews, Will Dunn (Gwen), Chris Parson, Jeff Parson (Christina); great-nieces and great-nephews, William, Kyle, MacKinna, Nathan, Noah and Joel. He is also survived by his adopted family, Lorelei Gnam (Wayne), Nickey, and Adrienne. He was predeceased by his twin brother Max, and his parents Fran and Max Wilton. A special thanks to those who supported Jack: staff at Rockyview Hospital, SCOPE and Options, Dr. D. Isaacs and Dr. T. Cran, special workers Coulette, Karen, Michelle, Gerry, and Jen, as well as all the friends who prayed for Jack the past many years.
