Mr. John Henry “Jack” Mayner of Rimbey, Alberta passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, October 20, 2013 at the age of 83 years.
Jack was born in Rimbey on August 22, 1930 to Henry and Harriet Mayner. He attended school in Blindman Valley and Bluffton. Jack worked on the farm for a while and then went to work at Burns Ranches near Calgary. In April, 1955, he was united in marriage to Margaret Deacon and they resided in Calgary where three of their children were born. In 1959, Jack and Maggie moved back to the Rimbey area to farm, and in the spring of 1961 they moved to the quarter that Jack’s dad had cleared and broke. While living there, they were blessed with their fourth child. In 1965, Jack and Maggie bought the former John Hunt farm near Bluffton, where they resided until they retired from farming in 1978. Jack enjoyed working part time at the Vet Clinic when they moved into Rimbey. In 2006, Maggie passed away and Jack lived in Rimbey for four more years. In April, 2010, he moved to his daughter, Cindy’s home where he enjoyed farm life until his passing. Jack loved sports on TV, yard work, and especially family time. Jack possessed a wonderful sense of humour, and really enjoyed all the family and friend visits.
“Jack will be sadly missed by all who knew him,
especially his family who loved him dearly.”
