Jack Rosamond

June 27, 1933 – December 20, 2016
With the dignity and quiet strength that defined his life, Jack slipped away from his family and friends from the complications of Parkinson’s.  His passing will leave wife Opal, daughters Deborah Scarlett (Michael); TerryLynn Rosamond-Whyte (Peter); son Jack Jr. (Lori), granddaughters Rebecca Milbank (Toma) and Trisha Wodnisky, grandsons Jeffrey and Christopher.
Jack also leaves six great-grandchildren, one brother William (Maria) as well as many extended family and friends.
Jack was an avid outdoors person, loving nature, hunting and fishing.  He belonged to several outdoor clubs.  He was selfless in his giving to others and loved listening to your story.  He will be sorely missed by all.
At his request there will be no service.

    My beautiful Aunt Opal and Cousins,

    We are so very sorry and heart broken hearing the loss of such an amazing and deeply loved Uncle and it is with great sadness that I am writing this condolence.
    I will never forget Uncle Jack’s protective love for all his family and his beautiful smile. He was remarkable. Not only was my Uncle Jack movie star gorgeous but also proud, strong and brilliant. He was a true man.
    He defined these qualities with bravery, committment and passion.The family has for certain lost an extrodinary person, he was the very essence of priceless and we will miss him immensely. My love and reget to all my cousins and to my beautiful Aunt Opal….Colleen(Rosamond)/Chris and Family.

  7. Dear Aunt Opal and family,
    My deepest warmest thoughts of Uncle Jack are what I will always remember. Thinking of you all and missing him! Sending love and hugs and kisses. xoxoxo

  8. Dear Opal, Deb, Mike and Family: My visits with Jack and Opal in Victoria have been a highlight in my life. We had great times, lots laughs and teasing. On my first visit Jack was in very poor health and I left thinking I may not see him again. Then he rallied and the last number of visits I was amazed at his great attitude and love of life. Of course the pillar of strength he lived with gave him those extra years and so many good times. Opal’s heart is broken now but she can use that unique strength to carry her forward with the knowledge that Jack had all those good years because they were such a great team and couple. Family makes the difference and Jack spoke of you with love and pride.
    I will miss him.
    Love Sue

  9. Dear Opal, Deb, Mike and Family: My visits with Opal and Jack in Victoria have been highlights in my lifetime. The first visit Jack was in very poor health and I left wondering if I would see him again. Over the next several years he rallied and I marveled at his great attitude and love of life. Of course the pillar of strength he lived with gave him those extra good years. Opal’s heart is broken but she can live with the knowledge that they were a good team and happy couple and there are so many good memories.
    Family makes the difference. Jack spoke of his family with love and pride.
    I will miss him!
    Love, Sue

    Dearest Opal, you and Jack were our best neighbours ever, we truly missed you when you moved west. We were so glad we visited you this past fall to reminisce and laugh like time hadn’t passed at all. I still remember when Jack had to put on his work overalls to go under our deck to untangle Bailey (he helped build that deck). What great memories. We send our most heartfelt condolences and prayers to you and your family. Love you, take care xoxo

I have been thinking of you and praying for you since I heard that Jack had lost the fight at the age of 82. Wishing for you peace and understanding as you go forward on your own. You have lost your best friend, may the lord give you strength at this time and the days ahead.
    Barry and Louise Quinn
