CORNELIS JACOBUS (JACK) KUYLTJES (MR. K)

1935 – 2018 

On Monday October 15, 2018 Jack passed away peacefully at Boundary Trails Health Centre at the age of 82 years old. 

He leaves to mourn: his wife, Simone Frei (Landreville), and Christine Frei, his daughter, Marcie (Mike), his son, Kelly and his son, Stephen (Katherine), his grandchildren, Katie, Braedon, Danielle, Courtney and Lindsay, Patrick and Delaney, his brother, John (Joanne), his sisters, Joanne (Nell), José, Anna Marie (Leo), Trudy (Jim) as well as many nieces and nephews, the Landreville family and friends. 

Jack was born in Waalne, Holland Europe and came to Canada with his parents and entire family after the war. He spent most of his life in Alberta, formerly of Calgary. He moved to the Haywood area in Manitoba in 2012 and lived out his final dream on his farm. He loved nature, the wide-open spaces of the prairies and the big blue skies. He was a huge hockey and soccer fan and loved big boy toys. Jack spent most of his life as an oil field consultant in the oil patch. He always said he was a lucky man. He loved his work with a passion; it was his dream job. It took him many, many miles of travelling on the highways where he got to see as he would say, “this beautiful country.” The people he met, the friendships formed, and he loved to explore. He covered many regions and the love of the land. 

Simone and family would like to thank Dr. Convery, Dr. Mendez, Dr. Woelk, Dr. Gosselin and the huge team of doctors from the Health Sciences Centre who took care of Jack and never gave up; to the palliative ward at BTHC and to each and every nurse who took care of Jack. The comfort, compassion, dedication you all displayed showed you were truly angels and a first-class unit. You all did your jobs so wonderfully; an incredible team who all came together to care for Jack. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you, thank you – you are the dream team. To Tanya and nurses and team at the dialysis unit, thank you for the many great years you took care of Jack. As Jack always said, “my girls”. To Jack’s many friends from the dialysis unit, the friendships, the bonds, the laughter, the jokes – thanks for the memories. To Eric Pohl, you were a wonderful friend to Jack; he treasured your friendship. 

As per Jack’s final wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no service. Jack’s final remains will be inurned at St. Boniface Cemetery in Winnipeg, MB at a later date. So long, Jack. Rest in peace. 

Donations may be made in Jack’s memory to either the Boundary Trails Health Centre Foundation (designated to the palliative care unit or to the dialysis unit) or the Health Sciences Foundation (designated to prostate cancer Dr. Chowdhury unit).
