Alfons John Jester

It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that the Jester family announce the peaceful passing of Alfons Jester in Brampton Civic Hospital on Sunday, November 15, 2020 with family by his side at the age of 87.

Beloved husband of Ingrid. Loving father of Robert (Erin) and Stephen (Catherine) Cherished grandfather of Hailie, Avery, Judah and Caleb.

Alfons, an avid skier and traveler, was dedicated to showing his family the beauty of the world. His generosity and selflessness was apparent to all he encountered. He came to Canada from Austria in 1954 when he was 21 and gradually built a life one can be truly proud of. Ever the optimist, always the life of the party, Alfons will be greatly missed by all those who were fortunate enough to have had him in their lives.

What wonderful memories I have of Mr. J. My family was lucky enough to be his neighbour for the majority of my childhood. He was always smiling and was such a good person. My heart goes out to all of you. Love you
