A celebration of Jack's life will be announced at a later date, when we are safely able to come together with interment of his ashes in Miami, Manitoba. In the meantime, Jack's family kindly requests that his friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour his memory by visiting his tribute page at EthicalDeathCare.com. A photo-biography, as well as memories and stories published by those who knew him, are available there.

Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
Met Jack through his involvement with the Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame. Had beers and talked baseball with him right up to the last day our watering hole was open. We also had shared experiences in Labour Relations, which we also discussed. I am shocked and saddened and will miss him dearly, as will our mutual buddy Bert, and our favourite waitresses Sherry and Sammy. Was looking forward to seeing him at Goldeyes games once again. Deepest Sympathies to the family. I will try to bring Bert and Sammy to Miami to pay our respects at the appropriate time. - Posted by: Jock Rodgers (Friend) on: Jun 12, 2021
