August 17, 1943 – January 27, 2018
at the age of 74 years
We are having a Celebration of Life for Jack at Roche Lake Resort, Chalet 1B (off Highway 5A, approx. 45 minutes, watch for signage on road) on May 12, 2018 at noon, the place he wanted to be, with his departed brother Glen.
Born August 17, 1943 in Lekkum, Netherlands.
The Steiger family moved to Canada from Holland in 1958 when Jack was 15 years old. When he was working hard to build his future, he stumbled upon Judy and later got married in 1969 and they were blessed with three sons.
They lived in Matsqui, BC until moving to Salmon Arm in 1980, where Jack built a farm in Silver Creek and raised his family. Jack would spend most of his time with the cattle and he especially enjoyed the Herefords and driving the range to check on them.
Jack’s greatest joy was all his grandchildren and spending time with them, whether it was watching them in 4H, playing a sport or a school performance he was there.
Jack passed away on January 27, 2018 at 74 years old after battling with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy for several years.
He is survived by his wife Judy, sons Ted, Eric (Wendy) and Steven (Jennifer) and ten grandchildren: Shaylyn, Dayne, Colton, Cody, Bailey, Alixander, Chloe-Anne, Kaylee, Jessica, and Tyson.
His brothers Rennie and Harry, sister Tina and their families, his best friend Dave, nephews, nieces and cousins all held a close place in his heart.
We would like to thank the Doctors and all the staff on the second floor of Bastion for taking such good care of him.
Jack, you have touched so many lives, we will all miss you.
Rest in peace Jack and Dad.
