Jack always lit up the gym when he arrived. I enjoyed listening to all his stories while we sat around and had our coffee. He will be missed by all who knew him………..

From: Kim Senko
Relation: Friend from Matsqui Rec Centre

Jack was one of the most honorable, cheerful, optimistic gentleman I ever met. He had a sparkle in his eyes and the rosiest cheeks you ever saw in a man. You knew he was so full of life the moment you met him. He shared his wisdom with all who would listen and always had a very good story to share. I feel very privileged to have had him as a friend and know he’ll be off on another adventure above. Love ya Jack!
