Obituary

Jack passed away peacefully Wednesday, February 20, 2019 at the age of 79 years, at home in Snow Lake, Manitoba with his wife Mona by his side.

Jack is survived by his wife Mona, brother Bob (Linda), Sons Bill (Shelly) Bob (Dori) daughters Brenda (Kevin) and Barb (Dane) Grandchildren Kalee (Tony), Candice, Leif, Colleen (Randy), Calvin (Cassidy), Aiden, Elin, Lola and Great Grandchildren Chloe, Hudson, Bentley, Cooper and Cruz. Jack was predeceased by his parents Wilf & Inez and granddaughter Alana.

Jack was born on February 24th, 1939, the eldest of two sons born to Wilf and Inez Forsyth in Flin Flon, MB. Mona and Jacks love story began in high school in Flin Flon where they met and fell in love. They were married September 9th, 1961 and moved into their brand-new home at 602 Lakeshore Drive in Snow Lake, MB. The raising of the 4 Bs started with Bill in '64, followed by Bob in '65, Brenda in '67 and Barb in '71.

Jack and Mona lived and loved in that house until 2016 when they moved down the Lakeshore to their beautiful new condo. Jack kept busy making Snow Lake a better place to live, work and raise a family through his work with Scouts Canada, Kinsmen, K-40, Lions, Grass River Corridor, Northern Neighbours, and as Magistrate, Deputy Sheriff, Counsellor for the LGD and Town, and Mayor. He received the Queen's Jubilee Medal in 2002, the Manitoba Tourism Volunteer award in 2003, and in 2008, Forsyth Agency and Snow Lake News received the Business Award from the Greenstone Community Futures Development Corporation. He was passionate about hunting, fishing and golfing with family and friends.

Jack always had vacations planned for the family, towing a camper across Western Canada and the USA. Every summer seemed to begin and end in and around Kennville, MB at his Grandpa and Grandma's house, or at the farm of his uncles Durwood and Rae.

Jack hired on with Hudson Bay Mining and Smelting (HBMS) as an apprentice Plumber/Boilermaker in 1956 and was employed in that trade for the next 38 years. Then in the early '70s he began to work out of his basement office as an insurance agent. In 1977, Jack and Mona bought the building and opened Forsyth Agency where they remained for over 40 years. When Jack retired from HBMS, he and Mona chose Palm Springs, California as their winter paradise in the sun. There Jack enjoyed golfing in local tournaments, marshaling on the course, the occasional cold beer by the pool, relaxing with a good book, and men's night with his Palm Spring Crew.

Grandpa Jack / Poppa Jack, as he was affectionally known, enjoyed life to the fullest whether it was relaxing at #1 Anderson Bay Cabin, golfing a round with the boys or jigging a walleye or two, just a friendly cup of coffee and a chat. Jack will be fondly remembered and always cherished by friends and family. Rest in peace.

A celebration of life for Jack was held Saturday, February 23, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. from the Lawrie Marsh Community Hall in Snow Lake, Manitoba. Interment followed at Brookside Cemetery in Snow Lake, Manitoba.

If friends so desire memorial tributes in Jack’s name may be made to the Snow Lake Mining Museum, P.O. Box 40, Snow Lake, Manitoba, R0B 1M0.
