Jack was born July 17, 1946 on the family farm in the  Hinchliffe area. He grew up on the farm and continued his adult life there with his daughter Juanita. He loved the farm and lived there his entire life. It brought him much joy. Jack married Shelly Lawson September 30, 1988. Their daughter Tara was born April 28, 1989. She was their pride and joy.  They farmed, raised cattle and Jack had logging contracts for several years. He was considered a "MacGyver" and could fix most anything he put his mind to. 

In his early years he worked winters away in places like BC. 

Jacked loved fishing, hunting, trapping and anything outdoors. His stories were serious but hilarious.  He enjoyed visiting with neighbours, playing cards and going for coffee. He loved teaching the young ones in the family, most recently his grandson Scott, about handling a gun, hunting, fishing and mechanics. 

He and Shelly grew a huge garden and took pride in the abundance of produce to share with family and friends. 

When Jack's health deteriorated and he spent more time indoors he took pride in making little wooden cars and trucks and leather work like mukluks, mitts, belts and wallets. He enjoyed making cabbage rolls, perogies, pickles and much more with Shelly, again to share with others or donate to fundraisers. 

Jack was a hardworking man who spoke his mind but loved fiercely, trying not to show it. He liked joking and telling stories. His family was very important to him. 

Jack is predeceased by his parents, Metro and Annie (nee Antoniuk); brother, Henry; sister, Mary; brothers-in-law, Bill and Julian; sister-in-law, Pat; nephews, John and Michael.

He is survived by his loving wife, Shelly; daughters, Tara (Brooke), Juanita (Michael); grandchildren, Scott, Tristan, Sienna, Amber, Megan, Austin and Joshua;  great-grandchildren, Aerial, Kyra and Atlas; sisters, Nettie and Rose (Gene); and brother, Mervin (Pearl) along with numerous nephews and nieces.
