Jacob "Jack" Anthony Vincent Blatz of Medicine Hat, AB, formerly of Bow Island, AB, passed away on Sunday, October 2, 2022 at the age of 69 years.
Jack was a wonderful person, who enjoyed life and loved to share his wit and smile with everyone. He tried out a number of different ventures during his life, travelling and working at jobs he enjoyed. He would often spend time visiting, travelling, or living with friends and family. He also had a deep love for his Savior Jesus Christ.
Later in life, he met his wife Linda and they had a daughter Katrina, whom they both loved so very much. Jack continued still with different jobs, doing ceramics, autobody, catering and to his surprise, teaching school. In love and unity of faith, he and Linda enjoyed family life and they continued to always keep in touch with family and friends. If you wanted to know what someone was doing, you could always ask Jack.
Left to cherish his memory are his wife Linda; daughter Katrina Blatz of Medicine Hat; siblings Theresa (Frank) Tradler of Red Deer, Dianne (Jerry) Duff of Oliver, BC, Geraldine (Charles) Marple of Edmonton, Warren (Colleen) Blatz of Oliver, BC, Glen (Marcia) Blatz of Bawlf, Christine (Blair) Richmond of Edmonton, and Doug Blatz of Gull Lake; and sister-in-law Bonnie Blatz of Sylvan Lake.
