To: Jack’s family and friends:
Very saddened to hear of Jack’s death. Our thoughts, prayers and sympathies are with you. May all your fond memories comfort you at this time.
Jack and I (Harvey) were good friends through slo-pitch and the Y. Always enjoyed seeing and talking with Jack – particularly exchanging pleasantries about our favourite football teams – the Eskimos and Roughriders. Jack had a wonderful sense of humour, excellent knowledge on many subjects, was very easy going and usually smiling. His passing leaves a real void every time I visit the Y. He is now running freely (along with other graduates from the Edmonton Seniors Slo-Pitch) on the heavenly ball diamonds.
Our sincere condolences

I’ve known Jack ( Of Blessed Memory) since I was a child in Calgary. His mother Tiba (OBM) lived across the hall from my grandmother in the Devoniish Apartments on 17th Avenue. He used to visit often and always came to say hi to Grammy.
Years later he was a regular customer at our restaurant- Hello Deli. Jack was always a pleasure to take care of in the restaurant. He came in with Maryann (OBM) and business associates.
The world has lost a true mentsh.

Jack was in charge of Facilities at the former Edmonton Board of Health. It was a complex portfolio but he someone managed to keep all the balls in the air!
May He Rest In Peace!

So Sorry to hear about Jack.
Lots of memories of him from the Larry & Shauna Heisha & Tiba years and then later on in the Mary Ann years. Last saw him in 2015 at my Mother's Headstone Unveiling. Condolences to entire family. Laurie

Barb and I lived at 1403 Bearspaw Dr W for 36 years. Our earliest memories of Jack are of him was his daily routine of walking his dogs in the ravine. His daily outdoor presence allowed us to get to know him.
We supported his application to the city to have the memory bench installed at the top of the ravine.
I was honoured to have Jack and Mary Ann become patients in my Optometry practice.
Until we left our home in July, 2016, I would see Jack regularly at the "Y" as we both tried to "stop the clock from moving forward " too fast.
He was always pleasant and always smiled. We will remember him fondly.
Our sincere condolences. Len and Barb Bistritz
We will be away and will miss the memorial service.
