Jack Compton

We, the family, regret with sorrowing hearts to announce the passing of our husband, father, brother and uncle, John Henry ‘Jack’ Compton in the An Cala Palliative Care at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital on January 28, 2018 in his 89th year. He was recuperating from an illness that befell him in 2013.
Jack was a respected person with high morals and devoted to his family and friends. He was a volunteer for more than fifty years in various community organizations. The cornerstone of his life was active participation in his church; St. Aiden’s. Westmount; St. Mark’s, Coxheath and Church of the Resurrection, Sydney where he and his wife of 58 years, Rose, gave their time in various duties. Jack was a Eucharistic Minister for more than fifteen years. He was the director of Cape Breton Attitudes Pageants for 19 years and enjoyed cutting the cake on July 1st with all the pageant participants at Peter’s Field Park.
He was the son of the late Fred and Annie Compton. Left to mourn his death is his wife, Rose; daughter, Rosanne (David Robertson); siblings, Irene (Ian) Fleming, Dartmouth, Beverley (Sherman) Williams, Avonport and Helen MacLeod, a main stay in Jack’s time of illness. Also surviving are sister-in-law, Anne Aucoin, Greenwood, and brother-in-law, Raymond MacIsaac, Sydney; his many nieces and nephews, and Coaldust, his beloved fur baby.
His parents, sisters, Marge Rossiter and Rose Kent and brothers, Fred and Frank will be awaiting Jack’s arrival in the heavenly abode.
The family would like to thank the nurses and staff of the C.B.R.H. for their compassionate care and wonderful atmosphere in his final days in Palliative Care.
Visitation for Mr. Compton will take place on Thursday, February 1 from 7-9 p.m. at T.W. Curry Parkview Chapel. A funeral service will take place on Friday, February 2 at 2 p.m. at Church of Christ The King with Rev. Peter Rafuse officiating.
