It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Mr. John ‘Jack’ Wells MacDonald at the Red Deer Hospice on Tuesday, March 17, 2020 at the age of 77 years. Jack was born in Loon Lake, Saskatchewan and was the middle child of five siblings. He was raised in Regina, Saskatchewan; where he met his beloved wife of fifty-five years, Audrey (nee Brown). Jack and Audrey were successful entrepreneurs and raised three children; as they moved across Western Canada from Saskatchewan, to British Columbia, to Alberta and back again, setting up their building supplies business. The couple settled their family in Calgary, Alberta and retired in Blackfalds, Alberta. Jack was dedicated to his business and his family, always finding time to support those less fortunate than him. In his retirement years, he enjoyed painting, wood carving and bird watching. He was an avid jokester, excellent polka dancer and could fix anything in a pinch. Jack will be fondly remembered and deeply missed by his loving wife, Audrey; his children, Scott MacDonald of Stoney Plain, Alberta, Barbara (Dan) Radke of Calgary, Alberta, Colleen MacDonald (Lee Bowie) of Wakefield, Quebec; his four awesome grandsons, Joel, Ryley, Evan and Caelan and his sister, Francis; as well as many extended family members and friends. Jack was predeceased by his father, James (Jim); his mother, Nancy (nee Petigrew) and three brothers, Edward (Buddy), James (Allan) and Lorne. We are so very grateful for our time with Jack and are enriched for having known him. He was deeply loved and will be dearly missed. A Celebration of Jack’s Life will be held at a later date. Condolences may be sent or viewed at Arrangements in care of Parkland Funeral Home and Crematorium, 6287 – 67 A Street (Taylor Drive), Red Deer. 403.340.4040.

Dear MacDonald family, I am a friend/colleague of Colleen and I want to tell you that I am very sorry for your loss. After reading the lovely obituary and Debbie's story about Jack and Peanut, I thought that everyone reading these will either be so glad to have known Jack or, like me, wish they did. I hope these good memories comfort you in the times ahead as you remember Jack. Sincerely, Jeannie

How will I ever get my dog in the house without Jack. When a storm hits Peanut hides under the shed, so I call Jack, over he comes and stands at the gate, calls Peanut and out she runs to Jacks arms. You are Peanuts best friend and mine, we will miss you so bad. Love you big guy, we will meet again on the other side. You are going to be one comical angel. Love you, and miss you💔🥰🥰🥰🥰💖💖💖🌈🌈
