Jack Allan Furnell, of extremely sound mind, passed away on August 15, 2014, after 97 years of eventful living.

He is survived by his loving wife Ingrid, brother Norman, two granddaughters, many nieces and nephews, stepchildren and their children.

Jack endured the Dieppe raid of 1942, and spent 2½ years in a prisoner-of-war camp before returning to Canada. After having lost touch with Ingrid during his time in WWII, they reconnected 40 years later and thoroughly enjoyed their 32 years together travelling and spending much time with family and friends.

Jack was especially fond of playing golf and a good bridge game, and proudly played in his final bridge tournament just 3 months ago.

A memorial tea was held on Sunday, August 24th at 2 pm at Long Lake Chateau on Ross Rd., Nanaimo.
