Obituary

With his daughters by his side, our father passed away peacefully Monday morning to join his mother Christine, father Frank, and Mary, the mother to his 4 children. “Grumpy” to some, “Grampa” to others, beloved father, grandfather and great grandfather.

Born in Hearst, Ontario the oldest of 9 siblings, and raised in Geraldton, Dad left home in 1953 at the age of 16 to join the military. He served in the Air Force for 28 years as an aero engine technician before joining the private sector. Dad enjoyed tinkering with engines and loved to spend his Saturdays watching Hockey Night in Canada. He was an avid reader of current events and kept his mind sharp by doing crossword puzzles until he was no longer able to see the words written on paper.

In his earlier years Dad was actively involved in the Church. He had a big heart; opening the door of our family’s home to people in need on more than one occasion. He helped who he could along his path and touched the lives of many people wherever he went.

Dad was an outspoken father and husband; you knew where you stood with him, yet might not have recognized the depth of his love. Dad was quick to forget and to forgive.

Dad battled and survived cancer for more than 10 years before succumbing to dementia without ever knowing the world around him had changed overnight.

Our family would like to thank everyone at Cama Woodlands Long Term Care Facility in Burlington for the wonderful kindness and care they showed our father during his final months.

Cremation will take place on Thursday April 2, 2020 and a private memorial will be arranged at a later time.

We miss you already Dad.

Dear Dad
As Easter Weekend falls before us I am remember fondly how we spent our Easters together as a family. We spent the entire weekend in church. It always brought us closer as a family and even as children we didn’t mind going.
I have so many memories of you dad. I will hold each and everyone close to my heart and every now and then something will happen and I will pause for a minute and think hey my dad did that or said that.
Remember when you tried to teach me how to drive. And I flew into a driveway with deep ditches on each side. You yelled I cried and then you made me drive back home. I still don’t drive and you loved to tell that story.
I will always remember the night I gave birth to Sara. You and mom were there. You were the rock that kept us together during the pain of contractions and the tears of the unknown. It hurt you and mom to see your young daughter in pain. We survived this and it made our relationship stronger. I will always treasure our memories.
I love you dad so so much and I am so thankful that Alanna and I were with you the day you left us. One more final memory and the saddest.
I know you are in a better place, free from pain and suffering. We didn’t abandon you dad. You were so scared to be alone but we were there for you. I will miss you dearly and you will not be forgotten.
Love always Your little girl ❤️

Dear Bernice and family,

I am so sorry for your loss, please accept my sincerest condolences and deepest sympathies and know that my thoughts and prays are with you.

Jack was a close friend of mine since I came to Canada 20 years ago. I worked with Jack for over 5 years. Jack was a fantastic man who cared and loved everyone. I was privileged to work with him and became a close friend of him. He was a remarkable friend, indeed a delightful and knowledgeable man who had a good sense of humor.

Jack was a family person, every time I met him or chat on the phone he always talked about his family, his wife, his children and grandchildren. He was so proud of his beautiful family and always showed me the beautiful pictures of his family. What he impressed me the most was that he had a super good memory as he remembered everyone’s birthday of his family.

My parents came to Canada and visited me in the year of 2016. Bernice and Jack invited them to their home. My parents were so grateful for their hospitality and loved the tea pot Bernice and Jack gave to them which my parents use it all the time in China. They always say that I am so lucky to have loving friends like Bernice and Jack who treat me like their family member.

Jack may not recognize me when I saw him last time in the hospital. I know Jack are in a better place now. Jake is home in heaven. All the pain and grief is over. Jack is now at peace forever.

I will miss Jack dearly. I will always keep a corner in my heart for Jack and thinking of him with the fond memories of we worked together and as friends.

Love
Jenny

I honestly don't know how to properly write this. As a grandson of Jack (Or Grumpy as I called him) he was able to always bring joy to me. I still have loads of memories of him from when I was little. One of my favorite memories was the Christmas hat we bought him that said "Grumpy" on it. I'd always be exited to see him whenever I visited. Mostly sharing stuff I wanted to talk about with video games. I remember even remember playing Minecraft on his phone, when no one else would let me since I was young. I have countless memories with him and it would be impossible to list all of them here. But in the end, I'll always remember him as my Grumpy.

I'll always miss you and I hope you're in a better place now.
Your grandson T.J.
