Jack was predeceased by his father, Abe, his step-father, Jake Loewen, step-brother, Larry, and father-in-law, Herb Dyck. 

Jack’s early years were spent growing up in Winkler surrounded by family and friends. It was during these formative years that his brother and sister had the privilege of leading him to the Lord. He was a pretty happy kid who enjoyed many different activities and close friends. Growing up, Jack enjoyed most of the so-called normal sports that boys of that time enjoyed in their season. He would frequently be found hanging out with the neighborhood boys for impromptu times of fun and games. Two of the things he especially enjoyed doing were ice skating and swimming and Mom would buy him a season pass for both. One year he wanted to enter a skate-a-thon so a small ice rink materialized on the empty lot beside our yard. He practiced endlessly, even in the dark, to build up his endurance. When Mom remarried in 1975, he moved to Austin where he lived with Mom and Dad until he moved out on his own. As an adult he thrived on stretching his mind. He loved to read and discover things and with the advent of the internet, he would often spend much time researching many different topics. He loved his jobs, and with the one company he worked for, he held different positions and levels of leadership in Calgary, Winnipeg, and Langley, BC. Jack came back to southern Manitoba from time to time when he was on holidays to visit Mom and Dad, brother and sister and his nieces and nephews who always enjoyed spending time with him and everyone always found it difficult to see him leave for home. We felt the time together was too short because we all loved his company. He moved back to southern Manitoba in 1999 which is when he met Brenda, who became the love of his life. They married in September, 2000, and moved to Morden where they lived until the present day. Jack was a kind and gentle person, never wanting to offend anyone. He was also very meticulous and everything had its place. He loved to work with his hands, taking pride in what he could do with scraps of wood no one else wanted. One piece of furniture he had created and showed Diane was a beautiful, functional entertainment stand. Yard work and gardening were other areas he was passionate about. He kept his yard neat and tidy year round and every year he put in a small garden that usually produced well. Jack and Brenda were very devoted to each other, spending as much time together as possible. They were virtually inseparable. Jack would frequently tell Brenda that “We are a team,” and those words Brenda cherished deeply.  He was concerned and cared about Aron and Madison only wanting the best for them. After moving back to southern Manitoba, Jack encountered many health problems that sometimes made work trying, but he never quit.  If he was laid off he would willingly take up the challenge of finding another one. Sometimes it was discouraging but he never gave up. On Wednesday, May 3, 2017, Jack went to work happy, fully expecting to come home as usual; however, that was not to be. He suffered a heart attack at work and was rushed to the hospital where the doctors were unable to resuscitate him. To the end, however, his spirit was indomitable and forward looking, always hopeful. For the last number of years, communicating with family wasn’t always easy for Jack, so contact with him was, at times, sporadic, but he and Brenda were always close to the hearts and in the prayers of family. We loved him deeply and cherish the knowledge that we will be together again in heaven.
