John "Jack" Robert Todd

December 7th, 2020

John ‘Jack’ Robert Todd was born in Medicine Hat, Alberta on January 8, 1930. Jack moved to Nelson when he was seven. During his teenage years he enjoyed his life and met Gladys Potter in Lakeside Park. The two of them separately went on to enjoy fourty years of raising their respective families and creating many great memories. But, in 1990 Gladys and Jack both lost their spouses and lo and behold they became a couple in 1992. The rest is history. Jack and Gladys married in 1993 and enjoyed years of fishing on Kootenay Lake and travel in their motorhome. 

I will miss him. He was there when I needed him most. We had a wonderful journey together. Wherever you are I am very lonely. Catch some more fish and be happy.

Grandpa, I’ll miss you always and love you forever. xo

Gladys, we think of Dad every day and we will miss him greatly. We are so grateful that you came into his life and loved him so much. The last time we saw him he was calling you his angel. He was so happy with the life you had together. Stay strong and we will all gather in the summer to celebrate his life ❤️

Our sincere sympathy and condolences. I got Jack’s obituary printed in Mainstreet and will mail you a copy when we get it. Love - Tom & Sharon
