July 30, 2021
Jack James Tennant, born and raised in Quesnel, retired to Prince George BC, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on July 30, 2021, after a year long struggle with cancer.
Jack is survived by his wife Valerie, his boys Darren (Tristan) and Darcy (Chrystal), his step children Kenneth (Julie), Nicole (Eddie) and 5 grandchildren. Predeceased by his brothers Scott and Bart, and his parents James and Merlie Tennant.
His use of colorful vocabulary will be remembered by the many that met him over his many years working as a mechanic at Arrow in Quesnel. His family will always remember his love of ratty old slippers that often left him flat on his back, his love of cats and his insistence on all meat being cooked til “crunchy” and in need of much ketchup to make it edible.
Jack was the typical old biker. Long hair and leather were his style and he took great pride in the fact that he still had a full head of hair. If Valerie could have found a perfume scented as burning rubber, Jack would have been the happiest man in the world. Jack did fill his desire for that aroma every year when Valerie and he spent their time at The Stomp, where Jack was well known for his smoke show and glowing pipes.
As per Jack’s wishes there will be no service and the family will mourn privately.
Our lives go on without you but nothing is the same,
We have to hide our heartaches when someone speaks your name.
Sad are the hearts that love you.
Silent the tears fall, living our hearts without you, is the hardest part of all.
You did so many things for us your heart was kind and true,
And when we needed to talk to someone we could always count on you.
The special years will not return when we were all together, but with the love within our hearts you will walk with us forever
Ride on my love.Obituary
