We were very sorry to hear the sad news of Jack’s passing. We are currently out of the country and are unable to attend his funeral service. We wish to send our sincere sympathy to Aunt Betty, all of our cousins and their children. Please know we are thinking of you during this sad time.
Jack will be missed.
Sincerely,
Sandy and Doug

Every community has an attitude which is the summation of the people in that neighbourhood. We believe that ours is quite positive, thanks to people like Jack Preece. Whether it is at a meeting, socially, or on the street, Jack's quiet, positive demeanour and brilliant smile was always most uplifting. Our community took a hit this week with the loss of this true gentleman.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the members of the family.

Michael and I offer our sincerest condolences to the entire family. Please take comfort in knowing that Jack assisted so many people of which I was fortunate to be one. I hope that he has found a new piano to play and/or new cribbage partners. All our love, Leann.
