Our heartfelt sympathy to our dear friend Margaret and Sandra and Malcolm at this sad time.
Jack will never be forgotten, his humor, friendship and big hugs we will miss.
Our visits to Niagara over the past 20 years we will cherish. We have lots of photos to remember all the great times there.
I will also miss my yearly jar of pickled beets which he always made and gave to us around Christmas.

God bless you Jack, you will always be with us.
Much love Pauline and Alan.

So sorry to hear of Jack’s passing, we are here in Daytona where we met you both, so many happy memories, Jack singing Roger Whittaker songs. Toasts to the Queen across the ocean. Never to be forgotten.
God Bless

Judy and I were very sad to hear the news. One thing you could always count on when visiting Jack, you were always made extremely welcome. We often visited for a BBQ when we lived in Ontario but were not in touch as much when we moved to Quebec. Too bad, but we have fond memories nevertheless.
Condolences to Margaret and the rest of the family.

Was blessed to be one of the many who received a lovingly crafted piece to help me celebrate along a fresh start in life...always felt like a part of the family being teased and cajoled by Jacks humour. Thank you for being you Jack, and welcoming all of us into being even a small part of your journey. Be at peace and know you gave us all a special part of you we can always look to , and smile. Until we meet again, save us a seat on the couch to watch a game with you. Xo Heather and family

So sad to hear of Jacks passing, our thoughts and prayers are with Marg and his family. We enjoyed Jacks company many times at Cairncroft in Niagara Falls and his visits at our trailer at Maple Leaf Acres in Fergus.
