Stockwell, John Kent (Jack) of Leamington, Ontario

StockwellJackPaper

Stockwell, John Kent (Jack)

It is with great sadness and yet profound peace that the family of John Kent Stockwell (Jack) announce his passing from this world on Sunday, September 29, 2013. He died at home peacefully after having had the gift of an incredibly special last day with his family. His wish to be with the love of his life Eileen Cecelia (deceased July 2011), has been granted. Jack was born May 30, 1925 in Leamington to Charles and Hazel Stockwell. He was a premature twin to his brother Jerome William (Jerry 1971). Weighing in at just under 2 lbs each they survived against great odds and grew into fine men. Jack lived all of his life on his farm, celebrating 88 Christmases at the same dining room table and enjoying many happy holiday and family occasions in the old house. Jack was a wonderful son, brother, husband, father, papa, uncle and friend. He took the time in the last few weeks of his life to speak individually to each family member, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren which was a much treasured experience. Jack farmed his family farm and took the responsibility of caretaker as a tremendous privilege. He kept this legacy for his family. He grew a one truck operation with his life long partner, a wife and friend, into a large regional international carrier. Even after retiring he always wanted to know what everybody was doing and what they were hauling. He enjoyed boating, fishing, hunting, golf, his cars and lawnmowers, his collection of hats and good dogs, a glass of scotch, his family and his friends. His integrity and work ethic earned him the respect of many. He was a man who met each day with incredible courage and optimism, an infectious sense of humour and an irrepressible enthusiasm for life. A story teller to the end, he remembered people, deals made, events and loved an audience for his tales. His simple faith in God guided and comforted his last days. His spirit, guidance and love comfort and guide us now. Jack was predeceased by his beloved wife of 63 years, Eileen ( July 2011) and his infant daughter Charlene Anne. His family is as follows; Sharon Stockwell and her son Sean Jeffery (sons Matthew and Tyler) her daughter Alycia and husband Joe Bento (BrieAnna and Ryan Bento), Michelle Stockwell and her husband Dr. Paul Links (Braedon, Duncan and Madison Links), John and Lynn Stockwell ( Jeremy, Jaclyn and Jenna and their families) Stacey Stockwell-Davis and her husband John Davis ( Kate Davis), Charles (Chip) and Tracey Stockwell (Marissa and Sterling). Life long special friend to Jack and Eileen, Jo Evans. Special uncle to Jerry and Rita Stockwell’s children, Van, Tim, JeriAnn, Meri, Cameron and LouAnn. Jack and his family appreciated the support of CCAC, St. Elizabeth’s, Bayshore, Hospice and Drs Sabga, Tawill and Gall. Special thanks to Kate Davis for her TLC. Not everyone is fortunate enough to have the support and resources to be able to die at home with dignity surrounded by family. In recognition of the importance of this, Jack and his family request that donations be made to the Hospice of Windsor/Essex (Leamington Campus). Funeral Mass to be celebrated by Fr. Ben Huyge and Rev. Robert Lemon at St. Michael’s Church, 21 Elliott Street, Leamington on Thursday, October 10, 2013 at 1 p.m. Interment at Evergreen Memorial Park Cemetery.
