Obituary

My Dad, Mr. John Oliver Jack who passed away peacefully at Northview Nursing Home, Englehart, with his loving nieces Ellen, Anne and Vicky by his side on Sunday, February 16, 2020 at the age of 87.

Dad and Mum, Catherine (neé McLean) were married for 47 years but after Mum's untimely death in 2002, he found loving companionship with Helen Berringer until he entered Northview Lodge. John is survived by his loving daughter Catherine Davidson of Scotland. He had only one grandchild, Helena-Catherine, of whom he was very proud, affectionately calling her "Dolly Punkins".

Dad was the best example I know of someone who turned their life around to become a greater and better person - he acknowledged his faults and mistakes in his life and did his best to correct them. He had a quick temper, but it was like a brief, summer storm and sunny skies always followed. Dad loved wild flowers, driving, rhubarb, and his favourite, redcurrant pie. He was a man of few words, but those words were full of wisdom and understanding. He was loved by many, many people, a charming and courteous man. It was a privilege to be his daughter.

In keeping with John's wishes, there is no visitation or service at this time. Condolences, contributions and memorial candles may be left at www.mcdonaldfuneralhome.ca.

Many happy memories of my brother-in-law, and subsequently my uncle when I married his nephew George Dudgeon.
He visited me in Montreal, when I was still single, then visited us when in Englehart. we also shared many good times when he and my sister lived in Glasgow, Scotland.
It was a privilege for George and I to sit with him on Friday and Saturday and share memories with the other visitors.

My dear Uncle Oliver. Many memories of Uncle Oliver when he came to stay at my parents home - Bernice & Chester Smith.
Whether he was in the Canadian Army or retired he would come and stay for a visit. From when i was young to being an adult. He was a very quiet man- knowlegeable in many things. I have good memories. ❤😊❤

sorry to let you go but had no other choice, I will certainly miss you. You did not go alone as Ellen, Victoria and I sat with you to the bitter end. You had such a strong heart it didn’t want you to go.
You where the last member of your family to go, now we are the next generation. RIP dear Uncle until we meet again. Love you forever. Anne
