Jack (John) REINHARD

REINHARD, Jack (John)

May 22, 1928 to September 20, 2011

Jack passed away peacefully with his children by his side. He was predeceased by his loving wife Jean Reinhard, his parents John & Catherine Reinhard, his son-in-law Dave Haug, and his brother-in-law Ed Haley.

He is survived by his children John (Laure) Reinhard, Joanne Haug, Janine (Andy) MacIntyre; grandchildren Camille (Mike), Danielle (Chad), Shaun (Yolande, Brandon), John (Lindsey), Geoff (Jen), Jake and Cole; great-grandchildren Taylor, Macy, Atley, Callee, Liam, Sydney and Graden; his sister Catherine Haley, and niece Karen (Harold) Grass.

Jack was a 3rd Generation Nanaimoite who spent his whole life in Northfield. He loved the outdoors and was an avid hunter who enjoyed his trips north for moose. He played ball and soccer in his youth and liked to follow his grandkids in the various sports they played. He started his working life by driving a gravel truck but his dream was to be a commercial fisherman. He was lucky enough to achieve his dream early and had a successful career as a West Coast troller fisherman.

A celebration of his life will be held on Sunday October 2, 2011 at Bowen Park Auditorium between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.

Jack lived life to the fullest. He was much loved by us all and will be greatly missed.

Dad you are forever in our hearts.
