Stubbington John Henry (Jack)

1928 – 2015

We are sad to announce the death of John Henry (Jack) Stubbington who peacefully passed away on March 28, 2015 at the age of 86.

Born May 11, 1928 in Wawota, Saskatchewan, he is survived by Winnie, the love of his life, wife of 62 years, four children, Ray (Linda), Don (Gayle) Darcy (Randy) Nessie, and their 10 grandchildren Nick (Tara) Jonelle, Nadine, Brittany Stubbington, Jessica & Nicole Jamison, Ryan & Tyler (Trina) Wetter, Derrick & Rozlyn Magee, and sister Marie Baker. He was the 8th child of 11 children.

Jack and Winnie were married in 1953, moved to the coast in 1956 where they enjoyed a lifetime of ‘giggles’ together. Loyal and devoted to his entire family,

Jack lived for his wife and kids. He always said, “life is for the living”; he fully embraced and loved life. He was passionate about sports & hobbies, was an inventive and creative builder of endless projects, which started at the kitchen table and ended in the back yard. Swamp buggies, freezer trailers, and so much more. Renowned for his amazing sense of humor and quick wit, Jack was a generous, kindhearted man who will be sorely missed.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Jack’s memory to the heart and stroke foundation, or foundation of choice. As per Jack’s wishes, there will not be a funeral service, however, please join us for Tea at the Eagles Hall, in Ladysmith BC, from Noon – 3:00 PM, on Thursday April 2nd, 2015.
