Jack William Funk

Posted on March 16, 2018 3:12 pm

Jack came into this world on March 31, 1938 and left peacefully in the early hours on March 12, 2018, just shy of his 80th Birthday.

He will be lovingly remembered by his two daughters Cheryl (Phillip) and Kerri (Trevor) both from Kamloops, BC, as well as his granddaughter Avery. Also survived by his three sisters Norma, Ann and Eileen as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his wife Vivian, father Henry, mother Mary and brothers Ernie, Len and Richard. Will also be sadly missed by his furry buddies Cocoa and Gracie.

Dad was an electrical contractor and business owner from 1969 until his retirement in 2014. He was also a long-time member of the ECABC from 1981 until his retirement in 2007 and served as president from 1994 until 1996. He also belonged to West Jets from 1984 until 2008. He was a pillar of the Westsyde community for over 50 years.

Dad lived life to the fullest, never letting the grass grow under his feet. You were likely to find him with his family, working in his garden, playing a round or two on the golf course, enjoying coffee with the boys or having a good ol’ time at the Casino. He was always connecting with family and friends, he loved all walks of life.

During the last four years of his fight, dad never complained and never gave up. His will was strong. He touched more lives than we will ever know and we have learned so much from him.

You will be missed dearly dad.

A special thanks to Dad’s long-time friend and family physician Dr. Sven Kip, as well as all his office staff.

Dad’s Celebration of Life will be held at Calvary Temple on Saturday, March 24, 2018, 1205 Rogers Way, starting at 1:00 pm with reception to follow.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice House in Kamloops.

Condolences may be expressed to the family on the Shoenings Website.
