JACOB “JACK” ANTHONY VINCENT BLATZ December 27, 1952 – October 2, 2022 Jacob “Jack” Anthony Vincent Blatz of Medicine Hat, AB, formerly of Bow Island, AB, passed away, after a heroic battle with cancer, on Sunday, October 2, 2022 at the age of 69 years.
Jack was a wonderful person, who enjoyed life and loved to share his wit and smile with everyone. He tried out a number of different ventures during his life, travelling and working at jobs he enjoyed. He would often spend time visiting, travelling, or living with friends and family. He also had a deep love for his Savior Jesus Christ.
Later in life, he met his wife Linda and they had a daughter Katrina, whom they both loved so very much. Jack continued still with different jobs, doing ceramics, autobody, catering and to his surprise, teaching school. In love and unity of faith, he and Linda enjoyed family life and they continued to always keep in touch with family and friends. If you wanted to know what someone was doing, you could always ask Jack.

One Condolence for “JACOB BLATZ”

  1. Pat Bremner says:

    I met Jack at St. Michael’s in Bow Island, where his deep faith and love made an incredible difference to many. He was extremely talented, artistic and ingenious and there was nothing he would not tackle. He lived his life with intention. I know I looked to him for inspiration and, faithfully, his very persona exuded love of God and people. I will miss him.
