ELLIS, Jack Elias
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
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

July 20, 1981 – May 10, 2014
With profound sadness, we announce the passing of John Thibault on May 10, 2014, in Edmonton.
John was born and raised in Lethbridge. He excelled in sciences at Winston Churchill, where he made and
charmed many friends. He completed a B.Sc. and M.Sc. at the University of Lethbridge. Always passionate
about science, John has been pursuing his PhD in medical microbiology at the University of Alberta.
In John’s too-short life, he overcame a series of serious health problems. He carried on with enthusiasm
and hope, wit and humour. It seemed that he could survive anything, and come through even stronger — a
true Man of Steel. For some, it may feel like his loss undoes a part of the world we thought we knew;
dismantles the laws of nature that applied to him.
But we want to celebrate the ways that John has touched us all. John played many different roles. He was
a loving son to Jim (Cathy) and Dereka (Bill), one-of-a-kind brother to Erin (Rob) and Ben (Kristin),
brilliant and goofy cousin and uncle, and friend and superhero to many. Best of all, John was — in his
own words — the luckiest husband having married the love of his life, Vicki (Mozgala).
A memorial service will be held at the Coast Hotel in Lethbridge, on Sunday May 18, 2014 from 2–5 pm. In
lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in John’s memory to the University of Alberta. Visit
http://www.giving.ualberta.ca with a note that your donation is in memory of John Thibault to support Virology
Research in the Department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology.
John’s nephew, Declan, said that he wishes there were more people in the world like John. We all do.
Please help us to celebrate his life and our hero.

Rob was athletic growing up, playing hockey, baseball, football (he was a Packer’s Fan) and golf. During
his career years he worked for the City of Lethbridge Parks Department from 1990 to 2013. Rob was a fun-

their needs. He was always careful to make sure that not a hair on his head was out of place.
As requested by Rob, no service will be held. As an expression of sympathy, a contribution in his memory
may be made to the St. Michael’s Foundation, Palliative Care Unit, 1400 – 9th Avenue South, Lethbridge,

Reed Harris Walker, age 88, passed away peacefully in Brigham City Utah, Friday May 9, 2014. He was born
December 29, 1925, to James H. and Mary Elizabeth Ann (Fannye) Harris Walker of Raymond, Alberta, Canada.
Reed is survived by his brother Ralph Walker of Raymond, Alberta, Canada, seven children Rodney (Cori)
Walker; MeriLynn (John) Keyes; Doug (Michelle) Walker; Jayson (Mary) Walker; Patti (Cory) Benion; Kerry
(Jenny) Walker; Shauna (Calvin) Timothy, 31 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren with 2 on the way, and
dozens of beloved nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents James H. Walker and Mary Elizabeth Ann (Fannye) Harris Walker, 7
brothers and 3 sisters, J. Harris (Beth) Walker; Robert H. (Barbara) Walker; Fay H. (Elsie) Walker; Glen
H. (Willa Rae) Walker; Floyd Walker; Lloyd Walker; Richard Walker; Beth W. (Earle) Zemp; Jane W. (Nolan)
McMullin; Mary W. (Paul) Fairbanks.
He was one of the younger children of 12. As a young man he enjoyed many activities that include playing
in the school band and basketball. He was surrounded by many friends and family members who loved him. He
worked on his father’s farm from a young age until he finished his high school education. He then served
a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in Houston Texas. In 1954, following a
brief service in the Canadian Army, he began work on his own farm in Moses Lake Washington.
On December 19, 1955, Reed was sealed to his loving eternal companion Marilyn Call Walker, in the Logan
Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As newlyweds, they resided for a short period,
in Moses Lake, when they moved to Utah for the purpose of Reed’s attendance at Utah State University. On
the fourth day of June, 1960, Reed was granted a Bachelor’s in Science diploma followed by an Elementary
School Certificate, the second day of September of the same year.
Reed devoted 27 years to being a fourth and fifth grade elementary school teacher, in Brigham City. To
this day, comments are made regarding his devotion and excellence as an educator, “Your dad was one of
the best teachers I ever had. He was generous, caring, and treated us like we were one of his own
After retirement, Reed and Marilyn traveled to various locations throughout the world. One location was
Africa where they served two LDS missions. Their first mission was in Zimbabwe Africa. Within 15 months
of coming home they returned to Africa once again to serve in the Kenya mission. They were one of the
first sets of missionaries to serve in that area.
He was a pillar of the community. Reed and family maintained and built a movie theater business started
by Vosco Call, the grandfather of his deceased wife. What began as a single movie house business has
grown to be what is recognized as the “Walker Cinemas”, an icon of the community.
Reed’s generosity and devotion was apparent in all aspects of his life. However, his love and devotion to
the Lord and family was paramount. He served in many church callings throughout his lifetime. He was a
loving husband, father, and grand-father. His example was stellar. He will be missed by all who have come
to know him but not forgotten.
Funeral services will be held Friday, May 16, 11:00 a.m. at the Perry Stake Center 685 West 2550 South.
Friends may call at Myers Mortuary, 205 South 100 East Brigham City, on Thursday, May 15, between 6:00
p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Friday one hour before the funeral service. Interment will be at the Brigham
