John “Jack” David LANGDON

John “Jack” David LANGDON

1949 – 2015

With great sadness we announce the passing of Jack on May 31st. 

Predeceased by his mother Dot in 1969, his brother Tom in 1980, and his father Jack in 1986. Jack is survived by his loving wife, Wanda, their three children, Tom (Jennifer), Chris (Sarah), and Jocelyn (Kory), and their grandchildren, Nolan and Mikayla. He is survived by his siblings, Gary (Paulette), Sue (Ian), Leigh (Corby), Leslie (Jack), and Joe. 

Jack was born on March 9, 1949 in New Westminster to his parents, Jack and Dot. He was the eldest of seven children. He graduated from Gulf Islands Secondary School in 1967. He married Wanda in 1980 and they built a home on Long Harbour Road where they raised their three children.

Jack was incredibly hardworking, and thought of his logging and fishing co-workers as his second family. He was strong, generous, and selfless. Jack continued to exhibit incredible strength and courage as he fought to the very end. Though he wouldn’t admit it, Jack had a huge heart and cared solely about the happiness and health of those he loved. He will be forever remembered and missed by many. 

A service will be held on Friday, June 5 from 1-4pm at the Salt Spring Legion.

In lieu of flowers or other gifts, the family kindly requests that any memorial contributions be made to help fight pancreatic cancer via Pancreatic Cancer Canada at
