Jack was a founding member of the Bay View Athletic Club and hockey manager for their teams for many years. Sports were an important part of Jack’s life, as he was a dedicated fan of the Green Bay Packers and Toronto Blue Jays. Never to be slowed down by obstacles he faced in life, with determination and humour he enjoyed many years of bowling, bocce, hunting, fishing, travelling and visiting casinos. He delighted in a nightly brandy and frequent get togethers with family and lifelong friends. His warm, wonderful smile will be remembered by all.
