Jack Eugene Joseph Bergeron

September 24, 1935 - September 20, 2014

Burial Date September 27, 2014

Service to be held at St. John The Baptist Heritage Church 537 Glencairn Lane – 1:00pm

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Jack Bergeron, a well-loved family man and friend, whose kindness touched many people.

Jack was born and raised in Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, where he resided for thirty-eight years. During that time, he held many interesting jobs, including crewing on his father’s boat to deliver mail and groceries to the homes and cottages on Lake Nipissing. They also chartered fishing trips and it was at that time that Jack met the Marx Brothers, including the infamous Groucho.

Known as a “Jack of all Trades”, he could fix just about anything. He was a volunteer fire fighter, owned a service station, taxi business as well as many other business ventures during a long and varied career. After moving to Trenton Ontario, he and his wife Kerry owned and operated A-J’s Family Restaurant and Catering.

Jack was an avid sports enthusiast, playing hockey, football, broomball, curling and bowling from a young age. Jack retired his jerseys eventually and became an avid and true Blue Jays fan seeing many games at the Dome in Toronto and never missing a game on TV where he and Kerry cheered their favourite players with great enthusiasm

In 2006, Jack and Kerry moved to Victoria, BC, where Jack planned to retire. It wasn’t long before he realized the “life of leisure” was not for him and he headed over to Wal-Mart where they gladly hired him as a “Greeter”. He loved working and only just retired in July 2014.

Jack leaves behind his loving family, wife, Kerry, his daughter Leisa (Joseph), his beloved granddaughters, Sarah and Emily Craddock, sons Jack and Evin (Heather), his step sons Robert and Kevin Steeves and their families.

A service celebrating Jack’s life will be held at St John The Baptist Heritage Church 537 Glencairn Lane, Colwood on Saturday September 27th, 2014 at 1pm.

In lieu of flowers donations to Victoria Cancer Society, Victoria Hospice or Canadian Diabetes.
