It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Jack Reedman who is now awaiting the resurrection of our redeemer. Jack suffered several strokes in the last few months and on February 26, 2019, his life ended leaving our hearts broken and eyes filled with tears. He was blessed with 68 years of life and abundant love from his family and friends.
John “Jack” Daryl Reedman was born on August 31, 1950 in Edmonton, Alberta to proud parents, Donald & Beryl Reedman. An only child, Jack quickly learned the rewards of responsibility and hard work. He was fond of the outdoors and never tired of hiking, exploring, and horseback riding. He was an accomplished Heeler, roping cattle and working on his ranch. He enjoyed reading and feeding all critters great and small, and cheering on the Calgary Flames but most of all, precious moments with his beloved family.
Jack was a kind and caring gentleman who had a quiet nature and generous heart. He employed caution and thought with everything he did – that was his true character. He demonstrated his qualities rather than boast and we take comfort that he will be resurrected on the last day to enter into paradise that Jehovah assures us.
He is survived by his beloved wife, Darlene Reedman of Blairmore; his cherished step-daughter, Brandie (Scott) Fast of Blairmore; his precious step-grandchildren, Hayley and Taiya Fast; his in-laws, Bill (Gail) Ogertschnig of Bellevue, Brian (Lori) Ogertschnig of Lethbridge, Shirley Newman of Okotoks and Caroline (Allan) Brooks of Calgary; his cousin, Greg Long and dear friends, Clair Drain and Garth and Alan Michalski.
He was predeceased by his parents, Donald Roland Reedman and Audrey “Beryl” Reedman.
A private family memorial service was held on March 2, 2019 at Fantin's Funeral Chapel in Blairmore with Elder Jack Kuystermans of the Frank Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses presiding.
