To Uncle Jack’s extended Family, Gina and I would like to express our sincere condolences on hearing of the passing of Uncle Jack.

My fondest memory of Uncle Jack was as a young boy of about 7 when I injured myself running through a construction site and stepping on a long nail that went through my foot. I hid the injury from my Mom for a few days but my foot became badly infected. As it happened Uncle Jack was visiting in Vancouver and Mom (his sister Winnie) told him of my accident. Uncle Jack came to visit and brought me a fishing rod & reel that I was thrilled about for many years and to this day have never forgotten. Uncle Jack was to me a wonderful person, generous, soft spoken and kind.

Rest in Peace Uncle Jack ………………
