July 21, 1949 – October 23, 2020

Jack passed away suddenly on his 49th wedding anniversary.

He loved camping, fishing, hunting, and his thirty years of motorcycle trips with his friends the Lemmings.

He loved the outdoors,  and his flowers and garden were second to none.  He kept meticulous care and attention to his lawn and his strategic magpie control measures.

The thing Jack cherished most in life was family.

Jack will be lovingly remembered by his wife Trudy, his brother-in-law Daryl (Judy) nephews Sam (Katie), and Lucas (Kayla), and his niece Jenny (Cary).

He is also survived by his father Harold, siblings Duane (Irene), Cheryl, and Ron (Melody); his mother-in-law Juanita Wade, sister-in-law Joanne Fox (Dave), and his numerous nieces and nephews. Jack was predeceased by his Mother Margaret.

Jack will be forever loved and never forgotten.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of Alberta and Northwest Territories.

In lieu of a funeral a small family gathering has taken place.

  1. What a loving tribute to Jack.

  3. Jack and I worked together both at EDTEL and at TELUS as well. Jack was always one to share a good story, a good/bad joke and loved talking about his motorcycle and fishing trips. Jack was a fun guy to be around, he had a passion for “doing a job well done” and never shied away from taking on a tough task. He was someone that you could count one. He will be missed and always remembered as friend and someone you were proud to call a friend and a compatriot.
