“Remembering Jack”
He always said how lucky he was, growing up on Manitoulin where he could be outside all the time. He lived a life of independence and adventure. He loved fishing, hunting, golfing and skiing and along with his career, he pursued them all with determination and passion. In the end, family mattered most and home on the Island was where he wanted to be.
We miss him.

A graveside service will be held on the May long weekend at Mindemoya Cemetery.
Donations to the Centennial Manor Aux. or the Mindemoya Hospital Aux.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. I grew up with Jack and all the Becks family, and the Hodgins, and all the extended family. We had a great time at Lake Mindemoya. Jack was a gift from God- we thank God for his life.

Remembering Jack and his so much above average wisdom right from a very young age......yet he could be lots of fun in the school yard and out fishing or on the golf course. Jack was truly exceptional, I can't forget what a wonderful dancer he was when he danced with the very elegant Jane Erdmann on the dance floor. I don't ever recall Jack being mean or nasty in his youth, a wonderful friend to grow up with back in the day.

John and I were so sorry to hear about Jacks passing .

We didn’t get to see him often but when we did, he was such a conversationalist and so knowledgeable about so many things.

I’ll never forget him dancing at Liz and Johns wedding, boy could Jack dance .
Country boots and all.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this very sad time .
Love Carolyn and John

Condolences to the family. Jack was a fun-loving school friend. We shared the same classes for five years from Grade 9 through Grade 13. It was always great to run into him in the grocery store and share our travel stories. He will be missed.
