John (Jack) William Ashworth Vincent
Passed on March 12, 2022
Peacefully, on March 12, 2022 at the age of 87, John (Jack) William Ashworth Vincent passed away in his sleep, at home. Our beloved father, grandfather, and great grandfather will always be remembered by his three daughters Joanne, Susan, and Sherry-Lynn, Grandchildren James, Justin, Darrel, Racheal, and Natasha. As well as his most cherished great grandchildren Dareus, Sebastien, Allie, Avah, Blake, Summer, Lucas, Chael, Aurora, Destiney, Dawson Jack, Oak-Lynn and soon to be newest great granddaughter.
Jack was born in Stony Mountain, as the youngest child to his parents Daisy and Alfred Vincent, with his siblings Edwin, Robert, Mary, Etola and Sam. Jack will be joining his family in the heavens above, along with his wife Kathleen Diane Vincent who he married in October of 1958.
Living his life on the family dairy farm, Jack took over the farm with his brother Sam creating Vincent Brothers Farm, with the help of many family members along the way. As a well known local curler in his prime, the love of the sport never faded over the years as he cheered on watching every game he could on the TV. That also included his love for hockey and watching every game that the Winnipeg Jets played, including their win, the night before his passing.
Jack enjoyed spending his later years discovering history and nature on road trip with his daughter Joanne, and Sherry, great granddaughter Oak-Lynn, and of course Lena on his lap. When he wasn’t watching sports on TV or out gallivanting, he loved spending time driving around the farm on his quad with the dogs or spending time teaching the perfect crokinole flick, telling stories and laughing with his grandchildren and great grandchildren. Jack will be deeply missed by all who loved him.
Our family would like to thank all the doctors and nurses at Stonewall, Grace and Eriksdale Hospitals for making him comfortable in his final days, as well as Stars Ambulance and all the home care workers that helped him smile along his journey.
A graveside service will be held on Thursday, March 24th at 11:00 a.m. at Christ Church Anglican Cemetery, Stony Mountain. Rev Colin MacIver will officiate.
