It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our Dad, Jack Deck, on Saturday, April 1st, 2023 at the Lacombe Hospital and Care Centre. Jack was born in Denzil, Saskatchewan on March 25, 1933 to Jacob and Lena Deck. He was the youngest of 8 children. The family moved to Lacombe in 1946. On October 9th, 1954, Jack married Edna Johnson. They had 3 children.
Jack worked for many years at the Lacombe Experimental Farm/Research Station as an Agricultural Plot Technician while farming and raising cattle west of Lacombe on the farm in the Lincoln District. He also had a few horses, which were his favourite animal.
In 1991 Jack and Edna moved to Lacombe, where their large yard allowed him to plant a large garden and lots of flowers. He also often got on his ladder to fill his many bird feeders.
In 2020, Jack and Edna moved into the Lacombe Seniors Lodge. Edna passed away shortly after the move. Jack loved music (especially country gospel), dancing, curling and most of all his Toronto Blue Jays. Jack really enjoyed his time at the lodge where he participated in many activities. He loved playing cards, socializing and eating all the wonderful food.
Jack made it to his 90th birthday. We are sure that is what kept him going these past weeks as well as his strong faith, which helped him through his later years.
Jack was predeceased by his wife Edna, parents Jacob and Lena, brothers John, Frank and Roy and sisters Helen, Kay, Josephine and Irene. Dad will be missed and lovingly remembered by his children Juanita, Melody (Brian), Stacey (Jennifer) and many nieces, nephews and friends.
A private graveside remembrance will take place at the Gull Lake Cemetery in late spring of 2023.
