It is with great sadness that we announce the death of JACK THOMAS WHITING on September 28, 2011 in Chilliwack, BC.
He was born in Vancouver on April 17th, 1956, pre-deceased by his parents Elsie and Frank Whiting.
Jack spent his childhood years in Vancouver and New Westminster and started his carpentry / lathing career in Fort McMurray & Edmonton, Alberta. After work on the oilsands projects and West Edmonton Mall he was happy to return to BC to work on the high rises in Vancouver and in Kelowna and the lower mainland.
Jack enjoyed the adventure of being outside with nature and walking with God. Several years ago, he and his daughter Alicia loved caring for his grandmother in Campbell River. He will always be remembered by his sense of humour and his love and caring for family and friends. But, somehow, depression took over and he took his life.
He is survived by his daughter, Alicia; grand-daughter, Carrie Rose; common-law wife, Wendy; sisters Belle and Brenda; brothers Reg and Bill and many friends.
Celebration of Life at 2:00 pm Saturday, October 8, 2011 at the Northside Foursquare Church, 1460 Lansdown Drive, Coquitlam, BC. Condolences to the family may be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org or 599 Cadder Ave., Kelowna, BC V1Y 5N5
