CREANEY, John " Jack"
It is with great sadness that we announce Jack's passing on Tuesday, January 24th, 2006, at Scarborough General Hospital. He fought cancer courageously but a massive heart attack took his life. Jack was 69 years old. He leaves behind his beloved Ann VIDAL, his daughter Sandra and his brother Tom (Maureen). He will forever be remembered by his Vidal brothers-in-law Jim (Joyce), Doug (Dianne), Don (Jeanne), his sister-in-law Maggie and his nephews and nieces. Jack spent 45 years in the insurance business and will be remembered with respect by his business colleagues and associates. Friends may call at Pine Hills Visitation, Chapel and Reception Centre (625 Birchmount Rd., Scarborough, south of Eglinton) on Friday, January 27th from 3-5 and 7-9 p.m. A reception to celebrate Jack's life will be held on Saturday, January 28th from 1: 30-5 p.m. at Barclay's Steak and Seafood Restaurant (1921 Lawrence Avenue East, Toronto). Everyone is welcome. Our sincere thanks to Tower 7th Floor staff at Scarborough General Hospital for their compassionate care during Jack's stay with them. As expressions of sympathy and in lieu of flowers, donations to the Chemo Clinic or the Palliative Care Unit of Scarborough General Hospital are appreciated. Jack will always be remembered for his love of golf and, like his late brother-in-law Ron, for his love of fine red wine.
