Obituary for Jack Chan
June 12, 2021 – July 30, 2021
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Jack after a courageous battle with cancer at the age of 79, surrounded by his family.
Beloved husband to Ann for 56 years and devoted father to John (Melody), Tanny (Dick Lee), Kathy (David Laan). Cherished grandfather and dearly missed by Stacie, Matthew, Jenna, Shannon, Jason, Stephen, Philip and Michael.
Predeceased by his sister Chen Yuk Ling Yu; he also leaves behind Chen Pik Ho Woo, Lili (Dirk DeJong) and Jean (Joe Dillon).
Jack will be remembered for his timeless generosity to help others in the Chinese Community both in Timmins and Toronto. On July 1, 2021 he was awarded the Canadian Centennial Medal which was created to commemorate the one-hundredth anniversary of the Confederation of Canada and to honour the many Canadians who have provided valuable service to this country.
Jack always put others before himself and will be dearly missed by his family, friends and all those whose life he touched.
We would like to thank the doctors and nursing staff in the ICU, respiratory and GI units on 8 West of North York General Hospital for their kindness and support during a difficult time.
