WEEKS: John Mathew, lovingly known as Jack, passed away on Tuesday, February 2, 2021 at the Brandon Regional Health Centre. Jack was predeceased by his parents Frank and Marion; brother Keith; and son Roland Keith. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Shirley; daughter Deborah and son-in-law Robert of Dauphin, MB; son Dwain and daughter-in-law Cindy of Regina, SK; brother Charles “Ted” and sister-in-law Ruth of San Antonio, TX; grandchildren Clayton Baker (Tamala), Meghan Baker (Jake), and Katie and Brendan Weeks; and great grandchildren Alexis, Connor, Austin, Bentley, Addison and Willa. Jack was born in Winnipeg on March 1, 1933. He spent his youth in Winnipeg, and received his first full time job after high school working at the Canadian Bank of Commerce. It was there that he met Shirley Frederickson; they were married on August 5th, 1955 and they purchased their first home in Winnipeg. In 1961, Jack was appointed as an Accountant at the Bank of Commerce in Dauphin, MB. The family, which now included a daughter, Deborah, spent the next 17 years in Dauphin. Two more children, Keith and Dwain Sion completed the family. Jack worked for many years at the Canadian Bank of Commerce, the CKDM radio station and Parkland Feeds in Dauphin. He finished off his accounting career at Meyers Norris Penny in Brandon where he worked on the Cost of Production study for the Manitoba Milk Producers and the Canadian Dairy Commission. His job was perfect for him. He spent a great deal of his time travelling from dairy farm to dairy farm, visiting and working with families who quickly became lifelong friends. Jack’s love of horses was established when he first purchased a pony for young Deborah. Many horses followed. In 1977, Jack, Shirley, Keith and Dwain Sion moved to a small hobby farm outside of Brandon. Horses and trail rides were not the only activity the family enjoyed. Jack learned to ski at a young age, and the love of skiing quickly hit the entire family. Summers were spent trail riding with the horses, and winters were spent on the ski hill. Jack was continuously involved in the communities in which he lived. He was an active member of the Dauphin Agricultural Society, the 3D Saddle Club, the Parkland Pony Club, the Boy Scouts and the Nancy Greene Ski club. If you ever needed a Santa Claus appearance, Jack was your man. Jack and Shirley spent most of their retirement years at the farm outside Brandon (Kemnay). Just recently they both moved into Hillcrest Place Personal Care Home. The Celebration of Jack’s Life will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Jack may be sent to Extendicare Hillcrest Place, 930 - 26th Street, Brandon, MB R7B 2B8.

Roberta, Tracy, Terri and I, Wayne Thompson were very sad to hear of Jack's passing. We were very close friends for many years until I was transferred to Alberta. I was over at the Week's place almost daily helping Jack and fixing stuff. I remember the hard work of putting up hay for the winter. Big strong Jack was able to handle the bales much easier than I could. Shirley was a huge inspiration to me in my attempt at making a large garden. Thanks to her it turned out very well. It was Jack who brought over his braking plow and broke up my virgin prairie. Then Shirley helped me lay out the garden itself. Jack and I went on many many trail rides on weekends. Also there was the trip to Alberta on a week long ride south of Calgary. After the chores were done evening ride was a must. Every so often when we passed through on the was to Winnipeg we would stop for a visit, and occasionally Jack and Shirley would visit us here In Alberta. Even tho I was far away I missed him and Shirley.

We first met Jack when we came to Canada in 1988. He called us and introduced himself and told us that he would like to do our "Cost of production" , For Nothing, No Charge. We had been ripped off when we first came over here and were skeptical to say the least. We gave in and Jack arrived on the farm one cold day. That was the day that we discovered a true gentleman. Jack was a friend when we needed a shoulder to cry on and someone to vent to. He certainly helped us through those cold early days. He always seemed to have our best interests at heart. We will be forever grateful for his patience, guidance and above all his friendship. Rest in peace Jack, and Thank you.
