  1. My dear brother, Jack, was a bright and capable man with many interests. He raced for the Victoria Wheelers Bicycle Club and raced his classic BMW cars in road rallies with his wife and best friend Sandy as navigator. Jack was an avid amateur mechanic and spent decades restoring cars and motorcycles. Jack and Sandy took many canoe trips all over Vancouver Island together. His proudest achievement was raising his three children – Jacob, Emmy and Jenna.
    Being only one year older than I, he was my first friend and as toddlers we were inseparable. Some of my earliest memories were being with Jack playing in the backyard with our two large dogs, then later with our two cats, Salty and Peppy. I also rode ten-speeds with him on training rides with our dad coaching us along. So many memories, yet he is gone far too soon.
    Jack was ever the optimist and I will miss him dearly for his self-deprecating humour, his impish grin and wry chuckle.

    • A cherished memory captured in a poem I wrote in 1974 as a teen, about Jack and me as toddlers based on a photo of us sitting together on the porch from behind taken by our Mom. Rest in Peace Jackie.

      “Dilly Dallying”

      Sun sitting
      we set ourselves on
      summer’s step

      Heat hides horizon
      in horticultural

      Doggies endeavor
      to delight
      our daydreams

      Watch waiting
      whimsical whilst
      whiling away the while

      Plays to pretend
      when pups ponder
      possibilities of pranks

      Better business
      is bestown upon babies
      than balm or bliss

      Sit in the sun
      with heat hitting heights
      his arm clasped ‘round me
      and mine ‘round him
      holding tight

    • Dear Suzanne and Family,

      So sorry to hear Jacques has passed away. I saw him at church from time to time and we always had a nice chat. My heartfelt condolences to you!

  2. Mary-Lucy Lorenson (Lucy to Jack)

    Jack proved to be a strong and true friend I saw him when on vacation here always very attentive to the needs of his family, always ready to play croquet maticulously making sure all the brackets were aligned according to the rules, shucking oysters canoeing all kids across the lake chopping and stacking fire woods. Helping me to fix things on my home. A great guy Full of fun and energy for adventure. Very easy going fellow. A great loss to us all 💞💞💞

  3. I knew Jack in my teens, when I lived in Victoria. I loved his caring, fun loving nature.
    May the memories and love of family surround you all and give you strength together now and in the days ahead.
    Forever remembered. With deepest sympathy.

  4. Father William Hann

    My deepest condolences to his beloved children Jacob, Emmy and Jenna and his kin and clanfamily. Together with Sandi once more. May forever memories comfort be assured of my prayers.

  5. So sad to hear of Jack’s passing. We are first cousins and I remember our first and longest visit was when the Moreau’s visited us at the lake in Saskatchewan. How did all 11 kids and their parents fit into that small trailer??? Swimming, games, cards and bonfires every night. So fun. Condolences to the Moreaus and all his friends.

    • Thank you for that wonderful memory, Janice! That trip was about 60 years ago and one of my best memories, too. I think Mom and Dad would’ve been masters at Tetris if it existed back then!

  6. Jack you are a forever friend.May you be forever happy with Sandy. Piece be with you both and thanks for being a great Knight George and Lynne.

    Dear Cousins. I am so sorry for your loss in Jacks passing. My husband and I were looking so forward to attending Jacks vigil and seeing all of you once again, but circumstance simply didn’t allow it. Mom would have loved for me to be there too, as Jack was her Godchild, and he always had a special place in her heart. Randy and I had the absolute pleasure of having dinner with Jack and Phil last year at Jerry’s. I’m so glad for that memory.
    Many blessings to all of you. I will keep Jack in my prayers.

    • Thank you so much Pat, I really wished I could see you! I see “Pot’s Pine” often as I live a short distance from our parent’s place. I’d love to visit with you and Randy and you’re welcome to stay with us in Victoria if you would like to visit.

  8. I am so sorry to hear about Jack sending my condolences to his children
