FOSTER, John (Jack) McCastle

December 14, 1937 – June 2, 2012

Jack passed away peacefully at home with his family after a brief and courageous battle with cancer. He is predeceased by his parents, Olive and Ray, brother, Sherman, sister Verlie and grandson, Tyler. Jack is greatly missed by his loving wife of 52 years, Margaret, their 4 children, Nyomi (Ken), Clayton (Jeanette), Douglas (Connie) and Joel. Grandson’s Nathan (Lilee), Bradley, Colton, Colby; Granddaughters, Donni (Shayne) Jaymee, Carla, Cierra, Shayla; Great granddaughters, Ayla, Julie, Myah and Emma. After years of owning his own trucking business, Jack then volunteered as a driver for the BC Cancer Society. Not only did he get numerous individuals safely to and from their treatment appointments, he befriended many, offered a compassionate ear and gave his support in any way he could. On any given day, you could find Jack at his favorite Tim Horton’s, enjoying his coffee while doing his crossword puzzle or swapping tales with the guys and gals of the “Timmy’s Club”. A devoted husband and father, he was a man who spoke his mind, called a spade a spade, had a dry sense of humour and the kind of neighbor and friend that would give the shirt off his back when needed. He touched the lives of many, many people. He will be greatly missed by all but never forgotten. We would like to welcome you to join us in a Celebration of Jack’s Life to be held at 11:30 a.m., Monday, June 18, 2012 at the Aldergrove Legion Hall, 26607 Fraser Hwy, Aldergrove with a tea to follow. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the BC Cancer Volunteer Driver Program in John’s Foster’s memory would be greatly appreciated by his family. Envelopes will be available at the service.
