It is with a deep sense of sorrow and loss, our family announces the sudden passing of John (Jack) Cleary at his home in Fort Saskatchewan, AB on March 31, 2018 at the age of 64 years.
Jack was born on April 23, 1953 in Guysborough, Nova Scotia, to the Late: Gregory and Clara Cleary.
He will be sadly missed and is survived by his daughter Sheena (Kyle), grandson Brayden; son Rene (Sophia), grandchildren Shayla, Teegan, Carsen and Skyelar; sisters Auldeen of Scarborough, Ontario, Marilyn (Blake) Higgins of Fonthill, Ontario, Sharon (Scott) Hart of Boylston, Nova Scotia, Grace (Louis) MacDonald of Ardness, Nova Scotia, Cathy (Dave) Wyatt of Guysborough Intervale, Nova Scotia, Gwen (Larry) Mataseje of Jordan, Ontario, Paulette (Charles) Nussey, of East Chezzetcook, Halifax, Nova Scotia; brothers Brian of Manitoba, Leo of Guysborough, Jerome (Nicole) of Vancouver Island, BC; sister in law Pheobe Cleary of Guysborough Interval, Nova Scotia and numerous nieces and nephews whom he loved dearly.
Jack was predeceased in death by brothers, Owen; Duane; David and Baby sister Eva.
Jack was a hard worker all his life. He loved fishing and watching sports. He was a longtime active member of both Local 244 and 488 Steamfitters/Welders Union, and a very proud member he was.
It was such a happy time for him, when he would see his grandchildren coming through the door calling out to him “Grampie, Grampie”. He was a very proud Grampie!
The interment of Jack’s cremated remains will take place at a later date at Guysborough Intervale, Nova Scotia.
