Our father was all and more of the tributes to his life on this earth. He was happiest with family surrounding him and a crib board in front of him. Dad always enjoyed the family reunions and any party that included the whole family, he took great being with his grandchildren. A hard working man, but his family always came first, when Mom was ill he only left her side to do what had to be done at the time, I have never seen a weekly grocery shopping be done so quickly!!I am unable to be home for Dad’s funeral but am at peace with this because of the time I spent with him at Georgian Manor and Fairvern.
I had the privlage of spending a week with my Dad at Fairvern and because he had lucid moments in the mornings we had some wonderful talks and many many walks during the night. I was able to spend several hours with Dad just before I left for BC and although he was sleeping alot at this time, he would open his eyes to make sure I was still there, but he did awake at one point and it was Dad, we talked for a few moments and he voiced how he worried about me being on the the road so much and to try and not to be on the road quite so much, but slipped back into the depths of his dimentia When I left that day Dad hugged me more tightly than he normally had and as walked out of Fairvern I knew it was his goodbye, I live in peace now knowing he is in a better place and with loved ones that left this earth before him.
Dad you will always live on in my heart.
Thank you to all that celebrated his life and those who wrote wonderful tributes to him.
He is happy I am sure reuniting with his Mom and Dad and our Mother.
Dad we will always love you and remember your patience, you were a great man!

I was deeply saddened to hear of the death of Uncle Jack. Memories of him will be cherished by many, and I feel so lucky to have had him as a Great-Uncle.
I got to know him well when he attended our weekly Sunday dinners with my grandparents, parents, and myself. I enjoyed playing cards with him – something he loved to do. He would be on the same team as my Granfather, and the two of them would get so upset when my Grandma and I would FINALLY win a game!
He always told the best stories about growing up in Huntsville with his friends. Occasionally, he’d even tell us about his time overseas at war. I am so proud to have had him represent our country in fighting for freedom overseas.
Although regretfully, I am unable to attend the services, I want you all to know that our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
