August 31, 1934 – March 3, 2022
Peacefully, John (Jack) Harry Halvorsen in his 88th year, passed on Thursday, March 3rd at Joseph Brant Hospital in Burlington, Ontario. He was predeceased by grandparents, parents, his wife Helen and daughter Brenda. They have no doubt received him with a stiff rye and ginger with plenty of ice. “Easy on the gingerale”
He is sadly missed by his longtime partner Irene Jacobson, son Brad Halvorsen (Annemarie), daughter Carolynne Mahy (Charlie), stepson Ricky Jacobson (Lorena), step daughter Leanne Jacobson and step daughter Tracy Jacobson. Loved Grandpa to 5 grandchildren, (Vanessa, Rochelle, Bubba, Alysha and Lauren,) and 6 great grandchildren. Deeply missed by his sister Jean Morden.
Heaven has one of the good ones now. Clear the cloud because Cadillac Jack has arrived!! Jack loved spending time with his family and friends. They would always wonder what he was going to say or do next. There was nothing left on his bucket list. He fulfilled everything he wanted to accomplish in life, with dignity, humility and honesty.
Thank you to the doctors and nurses at Joseph Brant and the PSW’s for their outstanding care and compassion. Cremation has taken place and a celebration of life will occur this spring. Come with a story to tell as we know there are many.
