Nov 19, 1946 – Jan 18, 2018
With hearts broken, we announce the sudden passing at home, of our beloved Jack on 18 January, 2018 at the age of 71.
Born in Vancouver, on November 19th, 1946, Jack had a remarkable childhood, surviving two open-heart surgeries; a very rare feat in the 1950’s. With the support and fund raising of the close knit community, Jack became known affectionately as ‘Bradner’s Son’.
Jack enjoyed his career as a sous chef by trade, spending the final years catering the events at the Bradner Community Club. However, Jack’s true passion was music and guitars, spending many years playing throughout the Fraser Valley with his band, the Commancheros. He will be remembered fondly by everyone for his incredible zest for life, great story telling and sense of humor.
Predeceased by his parents, John and Beryl, Jack is survived by his loving wife, Lorraine and step-children, David (Teresa) and Robin (Kevin); as well as many cousins, family and friends.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, February 3rd, 2018, at 2:00 pm at Bradner Hall, located at 5305 Bradner Rd, Abbotsford.
