John David Ibbotson

Ibbotson John D.


Jack was born in Winnipeg Manitoba, moved to Nanaimo in 1946 with parents Herb and Mary and his brother Bob. He worked at Harmac for over 43 years and moved to Ladysmith in 1980. Family, fishing and fun at a casino were his passions. He is survived by his best friend and wife Jo-Anne, daughters Jackie and Julie, their husbands Rob and Kent. His brother Bob, sister-in-law Verona, niece Melody and Robert Kozoris, nephew Kevan and Karen Ibbotson, Wally and Fay Ilott and their families will also miss Jack.

Special thanks to NRGH, Dr. Lisinski, Roxanne, the Ladysmith A&W and all of Jack’s coffee buddies whose support and gift of friendship meant so much to Jack and Jo-Anne.
