Oct.10, 1924 – Sept. 19, 2007
John Kerwin (Jack) of Lindell Beach, B.C. died peacefully on September 19th surrounded by family. Jack is survived by his daughters Judy, Cathy (Wallise), Lisa (Peter), & Jane (Mark) and his grandchildren Buddy, Amelia, Isaac, Sally, Brianna, & Maren. Jack lived a successful and meaningful life. Valuing family and friends above all, Jack inspired creativity, generosity, kindness, and respect in others. Dad taught us how to make the most of God’s gift of life. As an avid angler, Jack found magic and solace in moving water. Quiet in nature, Dad enjoyed warm times with family and friends gazing at the beauty of Cultus Lake. Dad epitomized the phrase that still waters run deep. His intelligence and wisdom were relied upon often and his keen sense of humor kept us on our toes! The love and tenderness that he showed his family and friends will continue to lighten and inspire our lives. Our sadness at Dads passing is only eclipsed by our appreciation of having shared so fully in his life. We love and cherish you Dad.
“That best portion of a good man’s life, his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love.”
-William Woodsworth (1770-1850)
