  3. Vivian and I are extremely saddened to learn of Jack’s passing. Jack was an impressive man, whom I knew through work interests for the past 35 years. He contributed to preserving bridges in this province by constructing more than 100 deck rehabilitations on bridges using specialized technology. He served as one of the early Presidents of ICRI and was always extremely innovative in his work. Jack was a very good man and he will be missed. I am very sorry for your loss.
