Born in the Netherlands, Jack travelled the world in his career as a marine engineer and later in life he stayed closer to home as a stationary engineer. In his retirement years, Jack provided guided tours to visitors as an active member of the BC Aviation Museum and he was a member of the Knights of Columbus, Sidney Branch.
Jack will be sadly missed by his wife Mae of 39 years, and his children and grandchildren. There will be a private family celebration of Jack's life.
The family would like to thank the SPH Palliative unit staff for the loving care provide to Jack.
