November 28, 1928 – February 12, 2018


In his 90th year Jack passed away peacefully with his family by his side.  Jack was predeceased by his beloved wife Barb and son Jamie. His children, John (Vera Lynn), Cheryl (Ron), Suzanne (Ron), daughters in-law Sue (Clayton), and Faye, will remember him as a loving man who gave them the gift of strong family and personal values. His grandchildren, Tiffany, Tyrell, Natalie, Kyle, Sarah, Andrea, Shikara and Cole, and great grandchildren, Malcolm, Violet, Lucy, Mason, Chase, Samuel, and Kaelan will miss their papa dearly. He will also be lovingly remembered by his sister in-law Beth (Joe). Jack worked at G.E. for 23 years, and enjoyed his retirement years in the house he built himself 60 years ago. He loved his garden in the back 50, riding his bike through town, and mostly enjoyed spending time with his family and faithful companion, Maggie. Everyone who knew Jack will never forget his smile, his blue eyes, and that he called everyone “love”. A special thanks to all who have provided their love and support these past several years when Jack lived alone. A Celebration of Life will take place on Sunday, February 25th, 2018 at 1:00pm at Ferndale Banquet Hall, 24 Ferndale Industrial Drive. In lieu of flowers, donations to CMHA (Simcoe Branch) or the Heart & Stroke Foundation would be appreciated by the family. Condolences may be forwarded through
