With heavy hearts, we announce the sudden & unexpected passing of Jack on Sunday morning, October 4th, 2020 at the age of 84 in his home with his beloved wife, daughter, son, & daughter-in-law present. Jack had a 40 year history of heart disease.

He was born in Belmont, Manitoba on the family farm, the son of the late Charles & Lavella Weddall. He helped out on the farm until his employment at the Belmont Bakery (owned by the Dandridge Family). Jack & Margie were married on December 10th, 1960 at the Belmont United Church & began raising their family. After the Belmont Bakery was destroyed by fire, Jack and Margie moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1966 and worked with Natural Bakery for approx. 4 or 5 years. Shortly thereafter, he changed careers & was employed with the St. James School Division where he remained until his retirement in 1997.

After his retirement he enjoyed spending time with his family & friends. His grandchildren and great grandchildren were the light of his life and he enjoyed spending time with them. They all have special memories to keep close.

He loved attending to his yard and maintained a meticulous green weed free lawn. He loved gardening and had a green thumb when it came to his beloved flowers. Jack enjoyed walking and would always strike up a conversation with whomever he bumped into along the way. Two of his favorite spots over the years were Robins Donuts & The Headingley Grill for coffee, good food shared with family and friends.

Jack touched the lives of many with his kind heart and caring personality. He loved his family and helped his extended family. He positively influenced all our lives and lives of others like the students in the schools where he worked as a custodian. When people found out he was our Dad we would hear, "Really!" They would share stories of how he sat and listened to them in the coffee room, laughing along and accepting & supporting them through their difficulties
Jack was predeceased by his parents, Charles & Lavella Weddall (Cline), uncle & aunt Charles & Margaret Williamson, brother & sister-in-law Hugh & Bev Weddall, brother-in-law Helgi Bardason, brother-in-law Art Goetz, sisters Margaret Vrooman & Harriett (Grace) Goetz, nephew Curtis Vrooman & by great nephew Brant Weddall.

He is survived by his wife, Margie (nee Acorn), daughter Deborah (Debbie) Weddall, son Dean Weddall (Sherry); Grandchildren, Kinnon, Tristen, Dallen, & Ryland; Great Grandchildren Angel, Keagan, & Thomas; Sister Helen Bardason, Brother-in-law, Gunther Gilberg, Sisters-in-law, Dorothy Myers, Betty Manning, Donna Grift (Lorry), Patsy Miller (Bill), Kathy Campbell (Barry) & Bonnie Nault & by many nieces, nephews & cousins.

Cremation has taken place & in accordance to his wishes a private family gathering will take place at the Weddall family farm where his ashes will be spread on the family hill overlooking the farm.

Friends & family are encouraged to share in a photo tribute, stories, & condolences for the family by visiting or call 204-827-2480 and your name will be added.

Love and condolences to Auntie Margie, Debbie and family, Dean and family.
Going for an after dinner walk with Uncle Jack was always interesting.
We wouldn’t get half a block and the teenagers in the area would be calling hello to him and stopping for a chat. Uncle Jack would tell me all about who he just chatted with. All of those teenagers were not just casual acquaintances, he took a genuine interest in their lives.
He was such a warm, caring man with a wonderful sense of humour.
My life was definitely better because of his caring, guidance and support.
Love you Uncle Jack and i feel your presence when i walk the hills.

Dear Margie and family,
We were so sorry to hear about the passing of Jack (John Peter). My parents thought very highly of him and the circle of people to whom that applied was small. He was greatly appreciated and trusted by my parents and that led to the same opinion by myself and my sisters. We all looked at him as our big brother. He was unfailingly kind and caring about his work, the business and our family. I can honestly say that we 3 girls are better people for having known him.
I’m so sorry for your loss and for your family.
