Short Answer: Yes. Jack was Christopher, the Owner's, Grandfather. A dedicated family man - son, brother, husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. Quick with a quip, loved scotch, loved CBC Saturday Night Hockey and Sunday NFL Football - any excuse to spend time with his family and the people he loved most.
He was also a World War II Veteran. He served in the Canadian Forces during World War II - Navy, on the HMCS Uganda, known most notably for having transported Winston Churchill and his staff to Washington in 1943 and acting, on more than one occasion, as an escort for various naval convoys - the biggest being the attachment to the 15th Cruiser Squadron of the Mediterranean Fleet on 10 July 1943, whose mission it was to aid in the allied invasion of Sicily (1). The facility was opened in part to commemorate his service and, in equal part, to become his legacy - a living epitaph as it were.
