Jack was born and raised and lived his entire 92 years in the Cowichan Valley. Jack lived on George St as a little boy and eventually built a home for his own family on George St where he lived until going to Cairnsmore in November of 2018. He was a lifetime member of the Cowichan Fish and Game association, he spent over 30 years with Island Processing rendering plant and retired from Managing the plant in 1991. Jack and Freda spent a few years traveling down south in the winters in their 5th wheel enjoying the Arizona weather and spending time with friends. One of Jack’s passions was fishing, Jack and Freda spent many summers out at Port Renfrew. He also enjoyed prawning with his close friend Harry Driver. Jack enjoyed playing horseshoes with Freda and their many friends out at the range in Glenora. He lived a wonderful life full of family, friends and adventure.
We would like to thank Dr Kubatskyy and the amazing staff at Cairnsmore Place for all the care you gave him. He wasn’t always the easiest to deal with, but you all took such great care of him and helped make his last 8 months a little more comfortable. There are a few of you that went above and beyond for Jack, his wife and his daughters. Thank you so much for everything.
A celebration of Life will be held at HW Wallace 5285 Polkey Rd Duncan BC on September 14, 2019 at 1:30 PM.
In Lieu of flowers please make a donation in Jack’s name to the charity of your choice.
