He is survived by his wife of 66 years,
Elizabeth Klassen, his sons, Victor (Caroline), Willy (Nicole), daughters, Maria (Dieter),
Elsie (Chris) and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Jake's passion in life besides his family was his love of gardening, fishing and enjoying the outdoors. Jake was a carpenter and was well known across Winnipeg for his skills. Long after Jake had retired, he could be found helping out his family with projects. Jake and Elizabeth were faithful members and servants of Sargent Avenue Mennonite Church since 1960. A special thank you to Pastor Marla Langelotz for her spiritual
support to dad and our family.
A special thank you to the staff at
Riverview for their loving and compassionate care over the past three months.
A celebration of Jake's life will be held at Sargent Avenue Mennonite Church, Monday May 27 at 11:00 a.m. with viewing prior to service.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Canadian Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation or Mennonite Central Committee.
