Jack’s career spanned more than fifty years as a trader on the floor of the Toronto Stock Exchange. He was well-liked and respected by his collegues on the floor. When the floor of the exchange closed, he continued trading for W.D Latimer Co. Limited online until he retired at the age of 76. He was cherished by friends for his sense of humour, integrity and his kind and generous nature. Jack enjoyed an active life that included skiing, golf, and tennis. Jack and Fran enjoyed tavelling the world together with family and close friends. He cherished time in the Kawarthas on Cameron Lake.
