Jack is lovingly remembered by his wife Ellen; son JD; daughters Ashley and Miranda; grandchildren Sylvan, Kalo, Jonas, Curie and Arkham; sister Susan (Alan) Lasseter; brother Bob McLean; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Born July 3, 1962 at the Holy Cross Hospital in Calgary, AB to John and Evelyn McLean. He attended Parkhill Elementary, Rideau Park Junior High and Western Canada High School. Jack started his work career with CNR; later transitioning to construction and carpentry, he worked for various companies and most recently as a Site Supervisor for Trico Homes.

He was an avid CFL Stampeder fan. He loved golfing, fishing and tinkering with small carpentry projects. His greatest passion was spending time with his family and friends. He loved spending time relaxing at the family cabin in Trout Lake, B.C. He was always up to the challenge of a new adventure. Jack always had a smile, a kind word and a really great story to tell.

A Celebration of Life will be held at SOUTH CALGARY FUNERAL CENTRE, 12700 Macleod Trail South (at Lake Fraser Gate), on Saturday, June 1, 2019 at 1:00 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations being made in Jack’s memory directly to the Kids Cancer Care, (https://www.kidscancercare.ab.ca/).

Ellen, we are so sorry to hear this very sad news. Jack was one of a kind. When you moved in next door we couldn’t have been more excited. I felt like we became fast friends. Jack always had a kind word every time we saw one another and we loved sharing stories over the back fence. He was so sweet and would offer a hand whenever we were working on something. I’ve just learned that he went to the same schools as I did and we never met at school. I know he will be sadly missed by all of you and I just want you to know how much he meant to us and that we thought of him a lot after we moved. We’re sending you so much love right now. I’ll continue to smile when I think of him and know he’s smiling down on all of you. With much love always.
