After a lengthy illness, Jack passed away at St. Boniface Hospital on Tuesday, July 20, 2021, at the age of 78.
Jack was predeceased by his parents, Daniel (Danny) and Cecile Marie Bartlette, and many aunts and uncles.
Left to mourn are his wife Gail, children, Dean (Erin/Kyle), Jeff (Lisa), Michael (Jenn), Candice (Kirk) and Sara (Sean); grandchildren, Ashley (Anton), Alison (Zak), Samarah, Hannah, Kayden, Nora and Cole; sisters, Joan Black and Diane Johnson, brothers, Danny Jr. (Martha), Glen (Linda), Tom (Debi), and many nieces and nephews.
Jack had a very full and adventurous life, travelling to many different countries, speaking often and fondly of Portugal. He enjoyed summers at Grand Beach, and backyard BBQs... always with many friends and family in attendance. Jack LOVED to cook.
Professionally, Jack had a long career with Canada Safeway, where most of his 25 years were spent as Merchandising Manager for Western Canada. After leaving Safeway, he did food service consulting for Victoria General Hospital and was later hired as their Manager of Materials Handling, where he remained for five years. His final position was with Precambrian Wholesale as General Manager, retiring four years later.
When Gail retired three years ago to babysit granddaughter Hannah, Jack (Pa) and Hannah established a fast and furious bond. Kayden arrived a few years later and his bond with Pa was quickly forming.
In accordance with Jack's wishes, cremation has taken place and no funeral will be held. A private service will be held with immediate family at a later date.
I want to express my sincere appreciation to the staff of St. Boniface General Hospital.

Sweetheart, you were deeply loved,
you will be fondly remembered
and you will be forever missed.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. Boniface Hospital or charity of your choice.

Condolences & Memories (7 entries)

  • Our condolences to the entire Bartlette family. Jack was a lot of fun to be around as he prepared his sumptuous dishes. We have fond memories of food, family, beverages and haircuts. - Posted by: Nicki and Kevin Hughes (Family Friends) on: Aug 04, 2021

  • My heart goes out to my Friend Dean and the family, God Bless. - Posted by: Ted Dalen (Friend of Dean's family ) on: Jul 30, 2021

  • We’re so terribly sorry to read about Jack’s death. We knew Jack from the Canada Safeway days but lost touch over time. We remember his sense of humour and how unruffled he seemed to be when grocery shipping and receiving orders went wrong! We send our sincere condolences to Gail and his family. R.I.P. Jack. - Posted by: Judy & Bob Labossiere (Safeway Co-Workers) on: Jul 26, 2021

  • So sorry for your loss. I so seldom see my name spelled exactly as my family name. I believe that my father, Roger Bartlette, a long time barber in Morris, Manitoba and Daniel, Jack's father were brothers. That would make Jack my cousin. I often heard about Daniel so many times although I didn't meet him. All the best. Sandra Birdsell (Bartlette) of Winnipeg. - Posted by: Sandra Birdselll (Bartlette) (cousin?) on: Jul 25, 2021

  • My condolences to Gail and the girls, as well as my Dad and his brothers, and the rest of the family. Wishing everyone comfort at this time. Grandpa was such an incredible force, it literally can not be stressed enough what an amazing cook he was. But most of all he was just the funniest Grandpa. Alison and I were so lucky to have his wonderful sense of humour in our lives. We loved going to our grandparents when we were little, and visiting with him and the girls when he moved to Iriqous. Grandpa was always playing pranks on us and making us laugh and I’ll never forget those stories and memories. I’ll always look back on those times fondly. I’m so sorry for everyone’s loss and I love you Grandpa. - Posted by: Ashley Bartlette (Granddaughter ) on: Jul 24, 2021

  • Our sincere and heartfelt condolences to the Bartlette Family. Our thoughts are with you all, today, tomorrow and always. - Posted by: Gobeil Family (Friends) on: Jul 24, 2021

  • Marta and I offer our sincere condolences to Jack's family. We had some great times watching him cook and of course eating the delicious outcome. He was an inspiration to all the Bartlette boys learning how to cook without recipes. His sons Dean, Jeff and Mike used the words to 'step on it' meaning throwing in different ingredients to change a regular dishes taste. We all learned to cook that way. Mystery Menu. He will be missed. R.I.P. Brother. - Posted by: Daniel ( Danny) & Marta Bartlette (Brother, Sister-in-law) on: Jul 24, 2021
