    Our families were close through the years, neighbors at the trailer, and bonded with our Legion family in Mississauga. From this a multitude of memories were built. Jack was always in for a good blockade road party in Meadad or whistling Elvis tunes through the window fan. He was a fun, loving protective family man. Many years ago my Dad was Jack’s executive secretary while he was President..oh how they loved to play around with that joke. If I had a dollar for everytime my Dad told someone about his “Buddy Coveyduc” I would be rich. He was a very good friend. I will miss his hugs. I am attaching a favorite photo💙 Condolences to all the ducs in the pond.

    I wanted to share a memory but there are so many. I settled on the most precious to me.

    I was 17 years old when I first met him. He was broad shouldered and the strongest man I had ever seen. I was immediately intimidated and a bit cautious of him. He spoke very few words as he took his inventory of me.
    You see, I was a stray and in need of love and security. A safe place to learn and grow. Little did I know at that time, he saw right through my tough girl act. He knew better than I did at the time, as he ALWAYS did… That life was a dangerous affair and no place for a young girl on her own. He knew that I was in love with his son. So he opened up his home and invited me to stay..

    He never feared my judgment or scorn as I was raised differently than he was raising his own. I caused a great deal of anguish for him throughout my stay. Arguing and defying his wishes. He didn’t bat an eyelash. He accepted this as easily as pineapple gravy on ham steak! I like to think he had some practice with his own daughter prior and found it rather amusing whenever I had repeated words or actions. I found this increasingly frustrating as he had the right thing to say ever time to disarm and educate.

    Jack saved my life as a young girl and I’ve regrettably taken too long to express that very fact to him.

    He is the strongest person I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. He was one of the few men in my life whom I held respect for and talked about when I had to give myself examples of real men to my children. He will always be my Savior and I believe now he knows my deepest thoughts and real feelings toward him.

    To Lorna, my deepest sympathy and love. My heart aches for the loss of your life partner. You both were my truest example of love and commitment. I can only express that these gifts will be passed on in your memory.

    Wherever you are Jack, thank you, may you rest in grace and peace!! Xoxo

    Jack will be miss immensely. For anyone who got to know Jack, he has such a big heart. He loved and was so proud of his family. When I think of Jack I think of words like caring, protective and funny. I used to love when he thought of something funny he had to get it out to the world. He always wanted to make people laugh. I also most respected his opinion. When he had something to say there was value it. It was time to listen. My condolences to all that loved him. He will be missed so dearly. What a massive void to the world this has created. RIP Jack. You and Brandy are lounging in a lawn chair listening to Elvis. That’s how I will always remember you.
