Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • The Richardson family is very sad to learn of Jack's passing. My parents, Frank and Bobbie (Roberta) Richardson, met Jack and Anne early on. My Dad and Jack were friends in elementary school in the 1940's in Fort William and Bobbie and Anne came on the scene in high school and from there a lifelong friendship took off. Jack and Anne were the Best Man and Maid of Honor at my parents wedding on September 1, 1951. Together, these two couples shared and supported one another through life's ups and downs making many memories over the decades. My sister Terry Richardson fondly remembers working at Transport Canada during Jack's time there, creating another link with our families. Frank & Bobbie and daughters Karen, Terry & Lynda - Posted by: Lynda F Richardson (Family friend) on: Jan 16, 2022

  • Anne and family, Our thoughts are with you at this sad time. Jack was truly a "gentle"man. - Posted by: Laurie and Bob Bouchard (Neighbors) on: Jan 09, 2022
