It is with profound sadness, that Jack’s family announces his sudden passing on Sunday, March 10, 2019 in Scottsdale, Arizona. Jack was born on October 10, 1931 in Charleville, Ireland and immigrated to Canada in 1952 when he was 21 years old. A couple of years after arriving in Canada, Jack proposed to his beloved Pat who travelled from Ireland to marry him in 1955. They shared their life together for more than 51 years before her untimely passing in 2007. Jack will be forever fondly remembered by his children Mark (Colleen), Jonathan (Michael), Shane (Joanne), Paul, Conor and Jacqueline and as a proud and devoted Grandad to Conor, Erin, Cameron, Kaileigh and Rachel. He will be sadly missed by his many loving nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. Family, faith and friends were the most precious things in life to Jack.
