Jack Johnston (March 21, 1939 - November 25, 2017)
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Jack. He died surrounded by the love of his family, after a lengthy illness.
He leaves to mourn, the love of his life, his wife of 58 years, Edna. From the moment he first saw her riding her horse he was in love. He was so serious he learned to ride so he could meet her. Though he was successful in his pursuit of her, it wasn't because of his riding skills. They were married in Fairview Alberta on July 20, 1959. They moved from Northern Alberta to Kelowna in 1973, and they raised their family here in the Okanagan surrounded by horses and dirt bikes.
Also left behind are his eldest daughter Lianna (Troy), his son Duane (Lisa), and his youngest daughter Jackie (David). His grand-boys Ryan, Tanner, Cole, Kaden, and Matthew. Though these were the children of his marriage, many, many more called him dad and papa. He loved them all like they were his, and each are better people for knowing him. They are his legacy and the sun rose and set on all of them. He made us all feel like we were his favourite.
He was predeceased by both parents and his oldest brother.
A celebration of Life will be held at the Westbank Lion's Community Centre, 2466 Main Street, West Kelowna, BC on Monday December 4, 2017 at 1:00 pm. All who knew him are welcome.
His extended family is vast both by blood and friendship, the impact he had on those he touched won't soon be forgotten.
