Born December 19, 1920 in Exeter, ON. Passed away peacefully on April14, 2016 at the Sun Parlor Home in Leamington. Predeceased by his parents Charles and Olive, and his beloved wife of 73 years, Doris Jean “Wynn” (Feb.6, 2016). Dedicated and loving father to Linda Rovere (Lorenzo) and Louise Dupuis (Don). He met his bride to be, Wynn, in Scotland while training with the RAF. They married and several weeks later he left for the war. As a Flight Lieutenant with the RCAF, Jack served his country during WWII, first training in Scotland and then as a commanding officer of several A.M.E.S. radar units in North Africa and Italy. After the war he brought his new bride to Canada, completed 4 years of study at the University of Toronto and graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering. Together Jack and Wynn established a home in Leamington and raised two loving daughters, Jack as manager of the Leamington Public Utilities and Wynn as manager of the home and family. Jack served on many municipal and provincial committees during his time at the PUC. He was president of two provincial electrical societies, the AMEU and the OMEA. He served Knox Presbyterian Church as an elder and for many years was on the board of trustees. Jack and Wynn had many wonderful friends with whom they traveled and socialized. His children, however, would consider his greatest achievement as being a wonderful father and a truly devoted husband. We know that Jack and Wynn are once again happy together. Theirs is a truly amazing love story. The family would like to express its sincere gratitude both to the current and former staffs on 3 West at the Sun Parlor Home for their care, kindness and compassion shown during dad’s time there. A private family service will be held at a later date.
