JACK VAN MAARIONPosted: June 6th, 2019
August 1, 1929 – June 3, 2019
It is with saddened hearts that Ella and her family announce the passing of their dear husband and father, Jack Richard Van Maarion. He passed away peacefully at the Good Samaritan Society South Ridge Village in Medicine Hat on Monday, June 3, 2019, at the age of 89 years. Along with, Ella, his beloved wife of 59 years, left to cherish Jack’s memory are his sons, Craig and Todd (Natalie); grandchildren, Cory, Tia and Teagan; his faithful, furry companion, Tucker as well as numerous nieces, nephews and members of Ella’s family. Jack was predeceased by his grandsons, Brandon (in infancy) and Michael; parents, Leonard Sr. and Theresa; twin sisters, Eve (Jack) Gloslie and Evelyn (Art) Entzminger; brothers, Leonard (Caroline) and Richard (in infancy). Jack loved mother nature and would do anything to get outside to enjoy it. He loved to sit with Ella on the porch at the farm and watch the sun rise and set and see the stars twinkling in the night sky. Jack and Leonard lived on the family farm all of their lives and Jack enjoyed working beside Leonard, growing the farm into a successful livelihood. Jack loved his cattle and a good crop. In his downtime, he was an avid fisherman, and boy could he fish! Family meant everything to Jack and he loved teaching his sons everything he knew about fishing and the farm. He will be deeply missed. Jack’s family would like to say thank you for the help they received from neighbors over the years, especially in the last few years when life became more challenging and difficult for him. A Celebration of Jack’s life will be held at the DayzOff Pub, 640 Kingsway Avenue S.E., Medicine Hat on Monday, June 10, 2019, at 2:00 p.m. Kids are welcome!
