Jack was one-of-a-kind and captivated people everywhere he went. He cherished his family and would do anything for them. Jack took great pride in his home, evidenced by how tirelessly he worked to make and take care of it. He loved and found so much joy in music, dancing, riding, boating, and telling all the best jokes and stories. Jack was a proud member of the Country Style Motorcycle Club, Tim Hortons Motorcycle Club, and the McDonald’s Morning Coffee Club. 


Friends and family are invited to a Celebration of Life at Jack’s home in Garden River on Saturday, July 6, 2024 starting at 1:00 p.m. Memorial donations to ARCH will be greatly appreciated by the family.
