He had a talent and love for woodworking and spent many happy hours in his workshop creating toys, furniture and crafts for his family, friends, and community. Jack enjoyed travelling, snowbirding in Florida, spending time with his grandchildren and sharing his passion for woodworking with them.
Jack was a man of faith, and a deacon in his church for many years. He enjoyed spending his time volunteering in the church and the community.
A family celebration will be held at a later date, followed by a dessert reception for family and friends. Anyone wishing to make a donation may consider Duncan Christian School, or a charity of your choice.
