God saw you getting tired,

When a cure was not to be,

So He closed His arms around you,

And whispered “Come with Me”.

A golden heart stopped beating,

Your gentle hands at rest,

God broke our hearts to prove to us,

He only takes the best.

Dearly Loved and forever in our hearts.

Linda DietrichTo all the family, I knew Jack when he lived in Grand Bend and I worked at one of the Banks, always enjoyed our talks and found him to be a caring man. So sorry for your loss.
Tom MathensikI knew Jack as a manager and friend since 1980 when I transfered over to the Computer Communications Group (CCG) from Network maintenance. He was instrumental in helping me get my amateur radio licence and I got him interested in the hobby of motorcycling! I'll miss him as a friend and mentor! 73's!
