In loving memory ~
Jack was born and raised in Saskatchewan and passed away in Ty Watson House in Port Alberni on Saturday, June 4, 2022 at the age of 83 after a short battle with pancreatic cancer.
Jack moved to Port Alberni in June of 1955 and started to work at the Alberni Plywoods until 1963 then to the Pulp Mill until 1976 and then to the City of Port Alberni Works Department until his retirement in 1999. Retiring at 60 he began his passion of working with wood and building and finishing homes and cabins. He was a ‘Jack of all trades’ and helped out ever so many people over the next several years. His love of family, travelling, going to Bluejay games, golfing down south and bowling were his other passions.
Jack is predeceased by his son Tim in 2006.
Survived by his loving wife Sharon of 36 years, daughters Barbara (Dean), Claudine and son Robert; numerous grandchildren, nieces and nephews; beloved brother Bob (Marj) and sisters Margaret and Marilyn; also many friends and relations across Canada and the US.
A Celebration of Jack’s Life will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Jack’s memory to the Tim Fletcher Scholarship Fund, c/o North Island College, 3699 Roger St, Port Alberni, BC., V9Y 8E3.
A sincere thanks to the Dr’s and emergency staff at West Coast General Hospital and the Staff of Ty Watson House for their amazing care.
