Jack Alexander was one of our very special cousins and we will hugely miss him and his wonderful personality. When his Aunt Ruth La Roi, our Mother, was slipping away, Jack and his wife Deanna visited with her frequently, c/w good humor and affection. Back in the early 1950's, Jack, his late brother Don, my late brother Larry and I drove to northern Saskatchewan and had the most exciting and rewarding fishing trip ever, thanks in large measure to Jack, who was good at everything, including towing a canoe thru a swamp, mosquitoes and all, to get groceries! My family and that of Sister Rita Vail convey our everlasting love, gratitude and support to Deanna and her family on this day celebrating Jack's life and legacy.

I miss the times at the lake with Deanna and Jack and all our other friends. So very sorry for your loss. God Bless.
Uncle Jack was a character...he had a very dry sense of humor and I never knew if he was teasing or serious! But I enjoyed exchanging "barbs" with him none the less.
What was always evident to me was his love for his girls. He was so proud of them and their families. He and Deanna were fun parents and made a great match.
Some of my favorite memories were family gatherings at Grandma Irle's and Aunt Florence's homes in Thomasboro. What a great time we all had!
I pray that God will give you many happy memories through the days to come to ease your great loss of Jack.
He will be missed,
