February 14, 1936 – May 18, 2022
at the age of 86 years:
Our family is sad to announce that Tjac passed at Mt Ida Mews on May 18 ,2022 with Laurene at his side and friend Lou.
He is survived by his loving wife Laurene, stepdaughter Laurie (Shelton) and grandson Isaak who he adored.
Tjac had a career of 25 years in RCAF, many years overseas where he was a member of Special Investigations Unit mostly in Germany and France and “wherever they sent me.“ He was very proud of those years and missed them.
Tjac and Laurene moved to a Tappen in 2006 where he started a Bluegrass beginner jam at Carlin Hall in 2007. Through the years a Village of players were created and many strong friendships formed to this day. His talent as a musician were outstanding. Having taught at many camps throughout BC. He was a fine gentleman, soft spoken and was kind to all.
Thank you to Mt Ida Mews staff, your care and management is outstanding…The Special Girls who cared for him…he truly meant it when he told you “I just love you” daily. Thank you.
Tjac never wanted to be in the Spotlight. He gave all the kudos to others. So at this time no service will be held.
Hug one another and Be Kind…Hugs are free!
