Jack was a very intelligent, kind human being and was always fun to be with.We had many laughs together as a family. He could always see the positive in life. He was a lovely man ---may he rest in peace.

God looked around his garden
And found an empty place.
He then looked down upon the earth,
And saw your tired face.

He put His arms around you
And lifted you to rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful,
He always takes the best.

He knew that you were suffering,
He knew that you were in pain.
He knew that you would never
Get well on earth again.

He saw the road was getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb.
So He closed your weary eyelids
And whispered “Peace be thine.”

It broke our hearts to lose you
But you did not go alone…
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.

Love you always

Jennifer, Jennifer Karen Hing..

He was a dear friend and wonderful acting coach. Remembering parties in our basement with him playing jazz on the piano. I love you and will miss you

While I knew that his health has not been so good in the past year, I was sad to learn that Jack has left us. Jack was a great man I had the opportunity to know better as a member my Communications' Committee at UNICEF Canada. We all loved his humour and dedication to the Committee's work and to the world's most vulnerable children. I learn a lot from his wisdom, joie de vivre and love of life. We quickly became friends and always enjoyed having a few beers together after our weekly meetings. I last saw Jack at Harry Black's funeral and, a week later, at a gathering of UNICEF Canada's colleagues to celebrate Harry's memory, I was pleased to meet again with the same old Jack, my friend. I will always cherish his friendship. Cheers to you Jack, until we meet again.
