JACQUES, Bernard

It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the passing of Bernard Joseph Raoul Jacques, September 11, 2012 after a brief but courageous battle with cancer. 

Bernard is survived by his loving wife, Volda, of 43 years; two daughters, June (Paul) Dal Monte of Burnaby and Marcelle (Scott) Chisholm of Vernon; one son Andrew of Vernon; six grandchildren: Sheila, William, Dylan, Taylor, Ryan, and Sydney; three brothers: Michel, Serge (Susan), and Eric, all of Quebec; one sister Betty Lunam of Victoria; numerous nieces, nephews and many other relatives and friends.

The family would like express gratitude to the wonderful nurses of 2 East at the Vernon Jubilee Hospital with special thanks to Drs. Ainslie and DeBeer for their compassionate words and sincere honesty.

Those friends wishing to honor Bernard’s memory can do so by spreading the word about the Vernon and District Association for Community Living’s bike shop “Cycle Cycle”.  Bernard volunteered many hours working in the bike shop and helped so many people find the perfect, affordable bike.

The Memorial Service will be held on Wednesday, September 19th, 2012 at 2:00 P.M. in the chapel of Pleasant Valley Funeral Home. A reception will follow in the tea room.

Arrangements have been entrusted to:
