Jackson Bertie Moore passed away on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 in Summerland, BC. Predeceased by his father K.C. Moore in 1989, Jackie will be remembered by his mother Elaine, sisters Linda (John), Jane, Trudy (Bob), brother Steve (Arleen), and special sister Sue (Tom) Kelly; also by niece Ali (Chris) and nephews Drew (Tara), T.J. (Kari), and Brett (Lauren) and their children.
Jack left this world as he had lived, totally in charge of his domain. He had an active life in Northern Ontario of biking, snowmobiling, fishing, and family fun. This was followed by years in Summerland, where interests included art, music, swimming, mini golf, and bowling.
Always the center of attention, Jackie was blessed to have been constantly surrounded and cared for by a cadre of loved ones and the community at large. His strength and determination allowed him to carve out a full life for himself when it was not always obvious that there would be one. Jack’s attempts to cope with and conquer the hand life dealt him taught us all the real meaning of a blessing.
It was an honor to have known him and to have loved him.
Jackie will have a smile on his face when he gets to meet “Stompin’ Tom” at the Pearly Gates. Goodbye Brother.
