After spending his formative years in Harbour Buffett, he came to Halifax to join the R.C.A.F. and go to war as his father before him had done in the Great War. During a bombing mission over Luxembourg, his plane was shot down and a few weeks later, he was reported as missing in action, presumed dead. During his time, he was twice mentioned in newspapers as having paid the ultimate price, yet his family and friends never lost hope that he was still alive. He moved through enemy territory evading capture for over four months, first making his way through occupied France and then crossing the Pyrenees Mountains on foot before entering Spain, where he was interned for three weeks. He arrived back in England before returning to Canada where he served with the NO 1 N.A.G. in Yarmouth as a Flying Officer Pilot and then as Squadron Adjutant. He was mentioned in a dispatch for Distinguished Service by the late King George VI.

After the war, Jack returned to Halifax where he attended Dalhousie University and TECH - Nova Scotia Technical College, graduating in 1950 with his P.Eng. After graduation, he worked with Nova Scotia Light and Power, and later on for the Nova Scotia Power Corporation. During this time, he successfully completed the Harvard MBA Advanced Management Program. Before his retirement, he was manager of the Thermal Division.

Jack was very active in his community, working in his church, St. Philip's Anglican, and with the Boy Scouts. He was a member of the Royal Air Force Escaping Society, Canadian Branch; Honorary Life Member of the Professional Engineers of Nova Scotia and past president of the Rotary Club of Halifax Northwest. In his retirement, he enjoyed camping and always maintained a list of friends who he visited, especially those in Camp Hill Hospital.

Jack is survived by his wife of 63 years, Iris (Wareham); son, John R., Halifax; brother, Jim (Marie), Harbour Grace, N.L.; sister, Ethel Burton (Freeman), also of Harbour Grace; many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by sisters, Dorcas and Myrtle (Anderson). By his request, cremation has taken place. A private service will take place at a later date in St. John's Columbarium, Rev.
