I met Jack through a college classmate, Al Rummery, who was a school mate of Jack's and a member of Jack's high school curling team. I remember several parties in the basement of Jack's parents house on Minto Street, probably some of them when the parents were on vacation elsewhere.
Marlene and I have lived in BC since April of 1975 and have only kept up with Jack's life through the occasional visit in Winnipeg with Al & Nancy Rummery

Our condolences to Audrey and family on the passing of Jack.

We will always have very fond memories from the time we met him on the curling rink when he was 15 years old.

Our trip to the Brier in Victoria in March 1958 was an incredible trip for all of us and our families - it was an experience of a lifetime!

Throughout our times together over the years we will always remember him for his thoughtfulness and concern for others.

RIP Jack
