Jake is survived by his wife Bernardina (Dini), sons Bernard (Johanne) and Norman (Patricia); his grandchildren Oliver (Danielle), Eric, Janelle, Mark, Michelle and Jeffery.

The last few years were challenging, but Jake always accepted his life with a smile.
Jake’s family expresses its sincerÂest thanks and appreciation to the staff of Clearbrook Dialysis clinic and to all those who have shared a good laugh with him over the years. He was a great husband, father and grandfather and will be deeply missed. In lieu of flowers please send donations to the Kidney foundation.
