It is with great sadness we announce John "Jack" Clinton Watters, 66, passed away on Sunday, July 4, 2021, in Winnipeg. Jack was born March 14, 1955 in Niagara Falls, Ontario. He was predeceased by his parents, Lee and Dorothy Watters.
Jack is survived by his wife Karen, daughters, Trina (Paul), Tannis, Kelsy (Paulo) and son Clint (Jess), grandchildren, Colton, Blake, Logan, Mateo, Tiago and Khloe, brothers, Terry, David (Lena), Rob (Nicole) and sister Darlene (Don), along with numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
Jack came to Winnipeg at 15 to work on a farm, this was followed by many different jobs. He was a "Jack" of all trades until he found his passion owning his own company and being his own boss. Jack and Karen started Reliable Heating & Air Conditioning making sure it became a legacy to be passed down.
He loved playing sports. Baseball, curling, shuffleboard and of course golfing. Jack enjoyed travelling with his friends and family. He was definitely the "planner" He planned many family reunions to see his aunt Jean, his cousins and siblings in Michigan. He also planned many friends and family trips to various locations. He always enjoyed finding different golf courses around the world. If Jack wasn't working he could be found at Rossmere Country Club or sitting by the pool in Phoenix enjoying the Cardinals and the Blue Jays with a cigar, cold beer or a nice glass of red wine.
His laugh and quick wit will be greatly missed by all of those who knew and loved him. He loved all of his friends and family.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
Donations, in lieu of flowers, can be made to CancerCare Manitoba.
A special thank you to 3E at Riverview for the care that Jack received.

Condolences & Memories (9 entries)

  • Such a beautiful and amazing man that we always wanted to be around. I loved to hear his voice on CJOB during his commercials and always wished we could get together for a round of golf and a few laughs. It was amazing to sit back and watch his mannerisms that drew attention. He was the life in the room that got things going. Our deepest condolences to Karen and family. He will be sadly missed. - Posted by: Reg and Tammy Hordeski (Friends) on: Aug 06, 2021

  • First met Jack in Niagara Falls. I think we got into trouble the first night we met. Always good for a laugh. I was from Winnipeg and Jack had been out here working on a farm so it wasn’t long before we decided to come back out West. Wasn’t long before my old man said maybe you and Jack should move out! We got an apartment at the King George Court and the party really started. I think half of Winnipeg partied at that place at one time or another. Never a dull moment! Will miss you my friend. My sincere condolences to Karen and the kids. - Posted by: Pat Werner (Old friend) on: Jul 17, 2021

  • Deepest condolences to the family on the passing of Jack Watters. Clint even as a kid out of high school, you were deeply devoted to the business your dad & mom started. It seems to me that the apple didn't fall far from the tree! Thinking of you all with sympathy & sadness. The Ruban Family (from Island Lakes} - Posted by: Lynda Ruban (reader) on: Jul 12, 2021

  • Our condolences to Karen and family. We will always cherish our memories of Jack. He was such a bigger than life guy with a smile and a joke or comment to all. We feel very blessed to have know him! Hugs to you all in this difficult time! - Posted by: Moe and Vern (Friends) on: Jul 12, 2021

  • I knew Jack for 40+ years and I have to say, he sure did a lot of living in his 66 years, more than most guys that live into their 90's. He was energetic and always busy, he worked hard and played hard. He was a character, I always enjoyed being around him to hear what he would have to say next, especially on the golf course. No shortage of witty comments, he was smart, caring and generous and we are going to miss him...big time. - Posted by: Geoff Bryant (Friend) on: Jul 12, 2021

  • Another good man down. I met Jack 20+ years ago as a young warehouse kid at Wholesale Heating. He was good for a daily laugh. Crude and hilarious. If anyone could call a spade a spade and get away with it, it was Jack. We had some fun adventures over the years, and most involved golf and fishing, but mostly beer and laughing. Condolences to the Watters Family. Thoughts are with all of you. - Posted by: Jeff Morin (Friend & Supplier) on: Jul 10, 2021
