Jack was a great family man, remained devoted to his family throughout his life. Having supported a few positions within the Tillsonburg area, DeCloets Farm Equipment, Balthes Farm Equipment, and Tillsonburg Fabricators.
His passion of hockey heeded a role for many years with the Tillsonburg Maroons Intermediate “B” which was his joy, we called that passion his second family. When the team expired he took up his second passion which was a true heart fan of the Tillsonburg Slo Pitch both men’s and ladies teams, especially the teams his son and daughter played on. Then on comes the next generation of baseball players (granddaughter). He was the ultimate fan, umpire, and coach all from the bleachers.
The family will be receiving family and friends at Ostrander Funeral Home 43 Bidwell Street, Tillsonburg on Thursday December 29, 2016 2 – 4pm, and 7 -9pm, where the Funeral Service will be held on Friday December 30, 2016 at 11:00 am. with Rev. Pat Cook officiating. Interment to be scheduled for a later date.
