John James Duckworth

March 22, 1933 - December 17, 2014


It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Jack Duckworth. Jack is survived by his wife Valerie, sons Garnet, John (Julie), David (Laura) daughter Shannon and many grand children and great grand children, and sister in law Harriett Butterworth. Jack was predeceased by his father Arthur and mother Gertrude Bell. Jack was born and educated in Victoria where he started his career in the plywood business, from there he moved to Kelowna, Fort MacLeod, Nelson, Golden, Prince George, Miramichi, N.B., Savona and most recently consulted for A.P. Group. Jack and Valerie moved to Chemainus on Vancouver Island 13 years ago where he enjoyed golfing at Mount Brenton and became a proficient oil painter. Jack enjoyed life to the fullest and was very active until he suddenly passed. So many family members and friends will miss his winning smile and quick wit. The family would like to thank Dr. Tom Rimmer for his caring and support during the 13 years Jack lived in Chemainus. In lieu of flowers, donations to a charity of choice or the Ladysmith Resources Centre Association a not for profit organization that he believed in and where Valerie volunteers. Memorial service to be held January 17th, at 2:00 pm at the United Church in Chemainus. A tea at the church will follow.
