In Loving Memory of John “Jack” Joseph Cornet Woodcroft
March 15, 1936 - January 7, 2020
With sadness and hope we announce the death and new journey of Jack.

His wife, Patricia (nee Heaven), and children Sheila (Keith), Liz (Ian), Dave and Geoff (Jenn), along with his grandchildren, Luke, Ben, Jake, Meli, Connor and Jakki wish you to honour him by sharing memories, stories and Wisdom of his over 83 trips around the sun. Jack predeceased parents are Richard Woodcroft and Dorothy (nee Weller) Woodcroft. He is survived by his sister Veronica (aka Aunt Ron), and several cousins, nephews and nieces.

Jack is a man of story; from the Hamilton Harbour days, through years of loyal service with Stelco, his years of dedicated service the Masonic Lodge, various Curling communities, his profound and generous service in the Ontario and National Lung Associations, International Asthma Council, and the Haliburton Health Services Foundation, it is in all of this that Jack glows in the story. Jack is a recipient of the Order of Canada.

His kids continue to recall the stock phrases, quirky behaviour, burnt pork chops, and loud supper conversation, those types of things that makes Jack such a unique figure in so many lives.

Although no funeral ceremony is planned, as per Jack’s wishes, we encourage one and all to give thanks to God for Jack, for that for which he lived and fought, for all that is great in his life, and for those unique moments we have captured in memory of him.

Memorial Donations to the Haliburton Highlands Health Services Foundation (HHHSF) or to the charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family and can be arranged through the Gordon A. Monk Funeral Home Ltd., P.O. Box 427, Minden K0M 2K0.

Sorry to learn of Jack’s passing. While we have lost contact following our retirements, I recall our working interfaces through the late 60’s and subsequent transfer to Lake Erie Works. When you were having operational or maintenance problems Jack was always there. His dedication, expertise and contribution were invaluable in the development of the plant.

My sincere condolences
Stu Millard
