Jack Edward McMunn


During the early hours of Wednesday, September 23, 2015, Jack McMunn of Drayton Valley passed away at Drayton Valley Hospital and Care Centre at the age of 78 years. In 1954, Jack began his transportation career with CP Rail in Winnipeg. In 1984, Jack left CP Rail and joined Canpotex Limited in Regina as Traffic Coordinator and Manager; then transferred to Saskatoon and retired in December 2000 as Director, Supply and Distribution with Canpotex. In addition to Jack’s great love for his family and career, he was active in various professional and community organizations, including Transportation Coordinator for the Western Canada Summer Games in Regina (1975), National Rail Chair and National Secretary of the Canadian Industrial Transportation Association, as well as Master Mason King Hiram Lodge. Jack will be missed by his true loves – wife, Marie; daughter, Allyson (Rick) Zorn; sons, Taylor (Tish), Sheldon (Deb) and Wade; grandchildren, Natasha (Mike), Russell, Rochelle (Ryan) and Eric, and great-grandchildren, Blake and Logan. Jack’s memory will also continue to live on in the hearts of numerous extended family, past co-workers and many life-long friends. Jack is predeceased by his parents, Agnes and Samuel McMunn; brothers, Bill, Stan and Gord, and sister, Effie. Jack’s life will be celebrated at a later date. The McMunn family would like to especially thank Dr. A. Gossman and the team at Claro Clinic for their phenomenal care of Jack during his illness, as well as the Nurses and Staff at Drayton Valley Hospital. In honour of Jack, memorial contributions may be directed to CT4DV, 4550 Madsen Avenue, Drayton Valley, Alberta T7A 1N8.
