ELLIS, Jack Elias
1939-2014
Jack’s awesome road trip through life ended on May 9, 2014. Jack ended his journey with brave dignity and
humor supported by his family by his side.
Jack was born in Lacombe on October 4, 1939 to Alex and Fern Ellis. Jack attended school in Lacombe and
continued his schooling at SAIT where he studied construction technology. Jack was a proud Boy Scout. One
of his fond memories was flying in a prop plane over Greenland on his way to the Diamond Jubilee in
England.
Jack’s “Centennial Project” (Jack’s words) was fulfilled when he married Linda in 1967. Jack was lucky;
he went from living at home and being spoiled by his mother Fern to being waited on by Linda. Linda did
so with humor and grace, most of the time! They raised three children: Terrah, (married to Don Lindsay,
daughters Kianna and Kiera), Trudi (married to Adam Mason, sons Eli and Isaiah), and Tyler (married to
Christine, son David).
Jack worked with his dad at Ellis Construction and went on to start a new business, Parkland Permacrete
on his own. Through his company he enjoyed sponsoring Midget and Juvenile hockey. Many of these players
also found summer employment with him. Jack was a ferocious football player as a youth and a dedicated
football fan. An avid Edmonton Eskimo fan, he held season tickets for many years. Jack loved Fords. His
first big purchase of a classic car was a ’56 Lincoln Mark II which fulfilled a childhood dream. His car
collecting bug grew from this point forward. He enjoyed many car meets with his friends and family.
NASCAR was also a passion. Jack did NOT enjoy company on race day! Road trips and camping trips were what
fed Jack’s soul. He covered all of Canada, the USA and a lot of Mexico with Linda and his kids. His
“ride” improved over the years from a converted yellow school bus to a 38 ft. diesel pusher. Jack was
active in Kinsmen, K-40, Rotary and Investment Club. He loved the fellowship of these groups and enjoyed
the projects. He also enjoyed a rum or two, a game of poker and regular attendance at a local “safety
meeting”. Semi-retirement saw Jack and Linda owning a motel in Fort Macleod, the DJ, fondly known as the
“Dumb Jack” motel where Jack was the front man and laundry guru. Jack and Linda retired in 1999 and spent
their time being amazed by new discoveries on the road. There were some bumps along the road caused by
medical conditions that made Jack grouchy some days, but he geared down and carried on. He will be
missed. His family finds comfort in these words, “To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die”.
Jack wished that any memorial contributions be made in his memory to the Ellis Bluebird Farm
(http://www.ellisbirdfarm.ca/): Box 5090, Lacombe, AB, T4L 1W7, or a charity of one’s choice.
Family and friends are invited to join together to remember and celebrate Jack’s journey on Friday, May
16th at 2:00 pm at Wilson’s Funeral Chapel, 6120 Highway 2A, Lacombe. Happy Hour will follow. Expressions
of sympathy may be made by visiting http://www.wilsonsfuneralchapel.ca

1927 ~ 2014

peacefully with his loving wife at his side at Edith Cavell nursing home on Friday, May 9,2014 at the age
of 86 years.
He is the loving Father of Gord (Mary Ann) Mirkovich, Perry (Sharmaine) Mirkovich. Don has four
grandchildren and three great grandchildren. Don is predeceased by his parents Milorad and Janika as well
as three sisters and one brother.
Don was born in Kragujevac, Serbia on October 18, 1927 growing up and living in a very turbulent time of
World War II. Fighting for the Serbian Army and the Allies at the age of fifteen and then lived through
Communism after the war Don escaped to Canada to settle in Lethbridge. Don created a new prosperous life
with his new found freedom. Don started working, as many refugees did, on a sugar beet farm and then
moved onto operating heavy equipment in the logging industry. Don then started his trucking business that
he operated until he retired after thirty three years. During those years he also built houses doing most
of the work himself. Don always seemed to know how to do everything. From concrete work to electrical to
cabinet building his self taught knowledge and work ethic was hard to keep up with. Don had a zest for
life and loved to dance, play cards and especially entertain his many friends. Don’s main focus in life
was his family and was determined that his two boys and his wife of sixty one years would never go
without as he did in his early years. Don greatly enjoyed wintering at his home in Vegas and taking
family trips to his homeland. We mourn his passing but celebrate his life and values. He died as he
lived, with honesty, integrity and compassion.
Vigil Rites will be held for Don at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, May 13, 2014 at the MARTIN BROTHERS RIVERVIEW
