Jack Sleeman

February 14, 1935 - November 8, 2014


Jack peacefully finished the last chapter of his book on November 8th, 2014 . He was born to Harvey and Elizabeth on February 14th, 1935 in Hamilton, Ontario. Jack is survived by his adoring, devoted wife Joan, sons Jack and Jonathan Sleeman (Aven Bendickson), daughters Jane Boucher of Ottawa (Brian Boucher and grandsons Jack Sleeman of Truro, Nova Scotia and Michael Boucher of Ottawa) and Jennifer Lambert of Victoria, BC (Bernard Lambert and grandson Liam Lambert).  Jack spent his childhood in Hamilton, Ontario before joining the RCAF. He served  36 years and retired to the town of Duncan, BC. He enjoyed his retirement by walking the dogs, Midnight and Chloe, travelling, and enjoying the garden. He enjoyed reading and watching CFL and classic old movies. Jack will always be remembered for his big smile, laugh lines, kind heart, and big hugs. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the Alzheimer Society of Canada.

Dear Joan and Family. The Armstrong family sends our heartfelt condolences on the passing of your husband and father. We are hoping you remember us. We are the grandchildren of Tom and Nellie Pacey from Belmont Ave Hamilton. We have fond memories of “Sleeman and Harvey” as we called them, and from Jack’s middle name that he was their son.

We are all sorry to hear of Jack’s passing.
Although we are not “close” it is sad to hear that another member of “the clan” is gone.
We have fond memories of Chiristmas Eve with Aunt Lizzie in Hamilton.
