My deepest condolences to Jack's family. I was very saddened to hear about Jack's passing. We lived in the same condo Bldg in Winnipeg for over 20 years. I called him my parking lot buddy because we parked next to one another. We had many many chats over the years and I admired him a great deal. He was so kind, easy to talk to, enjoyed life, loved his family and loved his outings, be it bowling or coffee. He was a wonderful man and I missed him when he moved. I am so glad he got to spend the last year with his son and family. He loved travelling to see his kids and grandchildren. He made this world a better place by being in it. Sincerely Donna Kolbuck-Street & Jerry Kolbuck
