Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • Jack and I were friends and classmates at Melrose Junior High and Miles Macdonnel Collegiate in East Kildonan. There were four of us who would hang out together during high school, Bill Briskie, Dave Garvie, Jack and myself. Friday nights we would meet at the Roxy Theatre and on Saturdays we would pile into one of our dad's cars and head out to the only A&W in Winnipeg, way out on Portage Avenue. In those days Papa Burgers and Root Beers were twice the size they are today, so it was worth the long drive. Of the four of us, Jack had the best sense of humor and kept us laughing. He was the best athlete.and was an outstanding curler. We all went our separate ways after graduation in 1958 - Jack into banking, Garvie to accounting, me to engineering. Bill died of Meningitis in 1961. Dave G passed in 2012 and now Jack, so it's a sad feeling to be the only one of our four left to carry on into old age. Even though it was a long time ago, I remember Jack as a good friend and it was a privilege to have known him. - Posted by: David Shimozawa (Friend) on: Nov 16, 2018
