Jack left this earth to join his daughter Sherry and son David on June 13, 2009 at the age of 86. Jack’s battle with cancer was long and courageous and he died with his family at his side.
Those who were privileged enough to have known him will be forever impacted by his wisdom, wit, compassion and kindness. He was a loving father to his children and many others, a teacher to young and old, and a friend to all who sought his understanding. Throughout his life, he touched others in simple and most profound ways, for that we will be forever grateful.
Jack is lovingly remembered by his family: his wife Linda, to whom he was married for 55 years, his daughters: Jackie (Randy) Burfiend, Holly Woods (Chris Shelley), Gai (Alex) Michie, Susan (Jeff) Demosky, daughter-in-law Michelle (Roger) Downing, his 13 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren, his sisters: Billie, Margie and SaraLee, along with many nieces, nephews and extended family. He was preceded in death by his parents, Blanche and Levi, and his brothers Russell and Carl and sisters Lois, Muriel and Jean.
His family would be pleased to have you join them in celebrating Jack’s life, on Saturday June 20th, 2009 at 2:00 pm in Vernon, BC at the Pleasant Valley Funeral Home with a reception to follow.
If it is your wish, you may remember Jack with a donation in his name to Hospice House or the Canadian Cancer Society.
“Tell your children you love them.” Jack Sager (June 28, 1922 – June 13, 2009)
