JACOB “JACK” REYNE
July 28, 1935 – October 31, 2017
Mr. Jack Reyne of Innisfail passed away at the Red Deer Hospice on Tuesday, October 31, 2017 at the age of 82 years. Jack was born in Holland in 1935 and moved to Canada in at the age of 16. He worked in a bank until he decided to go to work in the oil patch as it paid more to support his growing family. Jack met his wife Margaret in 1956, and later married his lifelong love in 1958. He worked his way up the ladder in the oil patch up until he retired in 2004 as an oilfield consultant. He is survived by his loving wife Margaret and his three children Chris Reyne of Innisfail, Cheryl Davis of Duffield, and Kathy Mowvley of Innisfail as well as five grandchildren, and five great grandchildren. Jack will also be lovingly remembered by his siblings: Hubert Reijne, Elly Wright, and Hill Reine. Jack was predeceased by his son Scott Reyne. A Celebration of Jack’s life will take place during an informal time of remembrance over a light lunch on Tuesday, November 14, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #104 in Innisfail, Alberta. In lieu of flowers, memorial tributes in Jack’s honor may be made directly to the Red Deer Hospice Society, 99 Arnot Avenue, Red Deer, Alberta, T4R 3S6.
