1935 - 2020

Generosity and hospitality were two characteristics that shaped Jake's life. He shared his building and fixing skills with family, friends and neighbours. Details were given meticulous attention to assure proper functionality and to be eye appealing.
Summers were spent at the family cottage in Falcon Lake hosting and enjoying family and friends.
Although his physical heart was severely damaged, his loving heart will continue to beat in the lives of his wife Frances, his son Colin (Cindy), his daughter Jocelyn, his grandsons, Cole, Rhys, Nico and Mylo, as well as treasured nieces and nephews and many cousins and friends.
Jake loved God and that love was reflected in Jake's unconditional love for others.
His parting words as a builder of many houses was:

" See you in God's House"
Dear to Friends
Dearer to Family
Dearest to God
