John Henry (Jack)

January 15, 1927 – February 20, 2013

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Jack Norrish. Jack is survived by Emily, his loving wife of 61 years; his sister, Edith Hadley of Sayward, BC; nieces and nephews.

Jack worked for Western Forest Products, Honeymoon Bay; then E.A. Morris, here in Nanaimo, until he opened his own business, Jack Norrish Safety Centre (for fourteen years).

In 1989 Jack took very ill and was in hospital for eight months, and for the past twenty-five years has been unable to work.

Special thanks to Dr. Lorne Goodall & staff for the care they provided and to the nurses and doctors at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital. A big thank you to Gordon Theedom & Blake McGuffie for the many years of kindness and friendship.

By request there will be no service.
