HARDY, John (Jack) E.
July 06, 1928 - November 17, 2022
It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved Jack Hardy; an amazing father and grandfather and a great friend to so many. Jack passed away quietly in his sleep on November 17, 2022. Jack was born in Kamloops, BC and grew up in Merritt. He met his wife Lois in Hamilton, and they settled in North Vancouver in 1957. Jack had a successful career as a Transmission Planner at BC Hydro and traveled the world to share his expertise before retiring at age 59. He and Lois enjoyed retirement life to the fullest with more travelling and always a party to be had with their many friends. Jack enjoyed hockey, golf, tennis, pickle ball and curling with Lois at the North Shore Winter Club where they were long time members. Jack continued to play tennis and pickle ball until past his 90th year. Jack was a ferocious opponent in cribbage and loved to play the harmonica, especially Happy Birthday for family and friends. After Lois passed away November 10, 2012, Jack continued to embrace his life with walking groups, happy hours and Saturday lunches with Jack and Lois' long-time friend Rhelda. Jack volunteered at The Rotary Club and the Prostate Cancer Support Group, proudly giving back to his community. Jack continued to live in and look after his family home until January of this year when he moved into The Hollyburn House and enjoyed his new life there. Jack was predeceased by Lois, his wife of 57 years and brothers Jim and Archie. Jack will be lovingly remembered by his son Jim (Jenn), daughter Dana (Mike), granddaughters Ellen (Geoff) and Alexa as well as Roman, Sam and Jack, and many friends and colleagues. There will be a Celebration of Life gathering planned for the Spring of 2023. In lieu of flowers, donations to the BC Cancer Foundation or Prostate Cancer Foundation BC would be welcomed.
