December 1, 1941 - October 21, 2020

Peacefully on October 21 Jack passed away at the age of 78.
He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 57 years, Audrey, his daughter Sandra (Morgan) and his son David (Helena). Jack was very proud of his five grandchildren, Stephanie (Maurice), Scott (Megan), Eric (Emily), Lauren (Brayden) and Marissa, and also his three great-grandchildren, Logan, Dean and Chloe. Jack is also survived by his two brothers, Andy (Cheryl) and Bruce (Arlene), his sister-in-law Dorothy Thomson, and sister-in-law and brother-in-law Barbara and David Duff.
Jack was predeceased by his parents, Agatha and John, his sister Joan (Wally) Norquay, brother-in-law Douglas Thomson, and in-laws, Dorothy and Jim Dunn. He also leaves many nieces and nephews.
Jack loved all sports especially curling. He was very proud that he was the youngest person to ever curl in the Brier, which he did in 1958. He also represented Manitoba in the Canadian High School Championship in 1959.
Jack loved his family more than anything and he will be greatly missed by all of us.
Due to Covid-19 there won't be a formal service.

  • Dear Audrey, Thinking of you with deepest sympathy. Jennifer, Ken, Colin and Craig - Posted by: Jennifer & Ken Swanston, Colin & Craig (Friends) on: Nov 13, 2020

  • Played lead for Bob Davidson when we played Jack in the Semi-Finals of the Free Press Main Event of the School Boys Bonspiel played over the Xmas holidays in December 1958. We lost to Jack but did gain a spot in the provincial Playdowns only to be disqualified as we had three members of our team who had repeated a grade in High School. That meant that only 9 teams competed in the January 1959 playdowns instead of ten teams. Jack of course went on to win and represent Manitoba in the Canadian School Boys Championships. Jack was a very fine curler and a real gentlemen when we lost to him at the Granite Curling Club. - Posted by: Gary McEwen (Curling Competitor) on: Nov 03, 2020
