We were Jack's neighbors for several years in Acadia and have only learned of Jack's passing recently while visiting our son who still lives next door to Jack.

Jack was such a character and a great jokster. We'd often talk with Jack over the fence when we'd be in the neighborhood or join him in his backyard for a visit. He was always so thoughtful and kind.

You'll be missed Jack, rest in peace with Heather and Scott.

I worked with John at Pembina for 17 years until his retirement. John used to do drafting in the Drayton Valley Office, when he started at Pembina. I was also a draftsman, and worked on many drawings that John had prepared. He was a talented draftsman, an excellent printer, and very knowledgeable about Pembina's pipelines and facilities. John was the company's Surface Landman when I started at Pembina. He was always willing to share his knowledge with me, and I learned so very much about the company from him. We spent many hours together drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes in our offices. Smoking was a bad habit, and when Pembina moved into the Husky tower, we were not allowed to smoke in our offices. Well it wasn't more than a couple hours into our first day, and John came out of his office to talk to someone with a lit cigarette. Everyone hollered at him to put it out, and he scrambled back to his office. We all had a good laugh. I saw John and Heather at Pembina's 60th anniversary party, and that was the last time I saw them both. When I think of the "Good old Days" at Pembina, I always remember John. He will never be forgotten. I offer my deepest condolences to Johns family.
