Jack Lyttleton Soare – February 27, 1916 – March 23, 2011

Our beloved father, brother, husband, grandfather and great-grandfather passed away on Wednesday after a brief illness. Jack was born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan and graduated in Civil Engineering in 1939. As a young engineer he worked in Ecuador then served overseas in World War II. He worked for Ontario Hydro until 1969 and then in Greece for two years. Predeceased in 1989 by his wife Mary (Allardyce), he is survived by daughters Elizabeth Cawker and Kathleen Parnanen, partner Irene Bannerman, sister Lois Leyda, grandchildren Ryan, Lindsay, Adam, Joel and Seija and 3 great-grandchildren. Jack had an honest and generous spirit and during his 95 years of life he faced adversity and challenges with a positive outlook and wonderful sense of humour. He will be missed by all but we cannot be sad, for his life was happy, full and complete. A celebration of Jack’s life was held on Saturday March 26, 2011 at 11:00am at Everden Rust Funeral Services, 1910 Windsor Rd., Kelowna, BC (250)860-6440.
