CLEMENTS, John Leslie (Jack)

John Leslie (Jack) Clements
October 7, 1923 ~ June 2, 2020

Jack passed peacefully, surrounded by his family.

Husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, uncle, soldier, sheet metal worker, psychiatric nurse, art therapist, therapeutic touch practitioner, stained glass artist … Jack was all of these and so much more.  Although his last two years were difficult after the passing of Yvette – his wife for 71 years – he met them with humour, gratitude and courage.  He loved nothing more than meeting new people and that is reflected in the number of friends he made around the world. His hugs and smile could brighten up the darkest day!

Profound gratitude to Sandi and her amazing team at Heritage Place who cared for Jack with such love.

A Celebration of Life will take place when circumstances permit. Until then, enjoy a slice of pie in his honour and love and laugh as much as you can!
