November 26, 1922 – December 12, 2015

It is with sadness that the family announces that Jack passed away peacefully on December 12, 2015 at the Bradley Center with his family at his side. Jack is survived by his wife Laura of 37 years, son Mel (Rose) and daughter Moren, three grandchildren, Brad, Terri-Ann and Sean, four great grandchildren, Trevor, Chelsea, Claire and Liam and one sister June as well as many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his first wife Dolly in 1974, two brothers, Howard and Alfred, and a sister Beverly. Jack was born and raised in East Vancouver. As a young man, he joined the Army and served his county during WWII. After the war he returned to Vancouver, married his first wife Dolly and drove a bus for the City of Vancouver. In 1979 Jack settled in Chilliwack where he met his second wife Laura. He worked at the Dairyland plant in Abbotsford until his retirement. During his retirement Jack and Laura took many casino bus trips which they enjoyed and long walks around the neighbourhood touching base with their community. He was a people person and loved to talk and share his stories. He took great pleasure in having the neighbours over to watch hockey and football on TV as well as sharing laughs and a few beers. He loved his family and took enormous pride in their accomplishments. The family would like to thank Dr. Larsen and the staff at the Bradley Center for their kindness and care of Jack. A Celebration of his life will be held at a later date. On line tributes and condolences may be offered at
