Date de décès : 19 octobre 2016

John "Jack" Gamble was born on June 27, 1928 in Vanguard, Saskatchewan to Glenn and Margaret. He passed away on October 19, 2016 at the Tofield Health Centre at the age of 88 years.He is survived by his sons Rodney (Vickie) and Ken (Linda); daughters Lynne (Kevin) Langager and Shannon Martens; grandchildren Angela (Chris) Hiebert, Richard Gamble, Megan Langager, Erin Langager, Kendra Langager, Bethany (Drew) Warkentin, Nathan Gamble, and Joel Gamble; great-grandchildren Mackenzie and Lukas Hiebert; sisters Josephine Sinclair and Evelyn Johnson; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Jack was predeceased by his wife Mary; sons-in-law Danny Patton and Isaac Martens; and sisters Maureen Parschauer, Elleanor Shortt, and Ina, in infancy. Besides raising registered Horned Herefords and farming in Pambrun, Jack was active in his community. He served as a municipal councillor, was involved with 4H, volunteered at Swift Current Frontier Days, and participated in the annual Bull Sale. In later years, he was very involved with Regina's Agribition. He loved hockey and played on local teams for many years. As his own sons grew older and began to play he switched to coaching and eventually became a referee for local games. A seasonal job as a weighman for the Record of Performance program eventually led to a full-time job with the Livestock Branch of the Saskatchewan Department of Agriculture. Jack was a good student and spent one winter at the School of Agriculture in Saskatoon. He loved until macular degeneration robbed him of that favourite pastime. Jack was a story tellerŠhe could come up with a story for every situation. He could talk with anyone, anywhere. Dementia in his later years made some things very difficult for Jack, but somehow he never lost his sense of humour and wit. He was an active member of his church, serving in a variety of ways. Faith and a relationship with God were deeply important to him and were an anchor in his life. His wife, Mary, was the love of his life - his queen. He would do anything for her. He loved and encouraged his children, but took special pleasure in his grandchildren and travelled many miles to attend special events with them. We thank God for the treasure of his life and miss him.
