    We regret to advise of the death of Chief Warrant Officer Jacques Gregoire, MMM, CD (Ret'd), peacefully, on 16 February 2017 in Ottawa, ON in his 81st year.

    Born in Sherbrooke, QC and raised in Montreal, Jack grew up to serve his country proudly as a member of the Canadian Military Engineers. Joining the Canadian Armed Forces at 18 years old, Jack served for 34 years. Originally a Stationary Engineer, he became a Mechanical Systems Technician whose career involved many postings. Highlights of his career include being the Career Manager for the Mechanical Trades and  his accomplishments culminated in his selection as the Canadian Military Engineers Chief Warrant Officer (1985-88). After retiring from this appointment Jack took on many roles including serving with Senate security, ice cream shop owner, school bus driver and, most fitting, 'Jack of all trades' at a family-owned produce market.

    Memorial Mass will be held at Divine Infant Parish, 6658 Bilberry Dr., Orleans ON, on Thursday, 23 February at 11 am. Visitation from 10 to 11 am at Divine Infant prior to mass. Interment at the National Military Cemetery, located at Beechwood Cemetery, Ottawa, on Monday, 27 February at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or Campaign Life Coalition. Condolences can be left at Beechwood Funeral Services. {khFeb2017} [zsd]
