Jack Gerard Wever, 67, of Calgary, Alberta, passed away on Tuesday, April 13, 2021. He was born on May 3, 1953, in Sarnia, Ontario, where he spent his youth then travelled west, like many of his generation. The mountains kept him there, and after stints in Banff and Vancouver, he settled in Calgary working in various capacities in the hospitality industry.
Surviving him are his other siblings, Robert (Julianne), Mary Alice, Mary Ann (Dave) Shaule, Maggie, Joe (Kathy), Matt (Marcia) and John. He also leaves behind a large group of nieces and nephews spread throughout Canada and the US. Jack was predeceased by his parents, Joe and Trudy; and siblings, Catherine and Barry.
In his declining years he happened upon the family of JoAnne Collins, Paul Knapp and their children Mitchell and Sidney Knapp. They included Jack in their family and their unceasing care, kindness and commitment sustained him through these trying times. We are truly thankful and also humbled by their generosity of spirit and example. Thank you!
Heartfelt thanks to the staff of Taradale West (5th floor) and Martindale East (6th floor) at AgeCare SkyPointe in Calgary. In spite of the burdens of a health crisis they dutifully continued to provide quality and effective resident care seemingly unperturbed by the surrounding events. Thank you!
While cremation has already occurred there will be a Celebration of Jack’s Life at a later date. In lieu of flowers, a donation in Jack’s memory can be made to Parkinson Canada at Parkinson.ca.
Sending condolences to the entire Wever family. This is a beautiful tribute. Wishing you peace. Diane and Kevin Gederman
