Peacefully, in his sleep at Woodstock General Hospital, in his 94th year on Saturday, September 19, 2020. Son of the late Ella Ormandy and William Banks. Loving husband of Beatrice (nee Hanson). Father of Penny (Robert) Keel, Richard (Diane) Banks, Patricia (Fred) Dehmel, Russell (Kathleen) Banks, Jack Banks Jr. and Marjorie LePoidevin. Survived by sisters Thelma (late Ed) Pite, Hilda (late Jake) Roswell, Betty (late Ken) Symons, brothers Ken (late Peg) and Dennis (late Dawn) Banks, 13 grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. Jack loved them all dearly and had a special pet name for each of them. Predeceased by brothers Gord, Wally and Norm and infant sister Marjorie.

At 18 Jack enlisted in the Canadian Army and served his country with honour and pride during WW2 with the 48th Highlanders of Canada in Canada, Scotland, England, Netherlands and Belgium during the war. He was awarded the France and Germany Star, The War Medal 1939-1945 and the Canadian VSM. After the war he worked for many years at Cockshutts in Brantford staying on when it became White Farm Equipment. He was proud to be chosen to travel on their behalf throughout the northwestern US teaching American counterparts how to fix their combines. His work in the factory helped him to afford being a farmer and Jack and Bea owned several farms in the Harley area throughout his life. He was particularly fond of his fruit orchards. A man who loved nature, Jack delighted in teaching his grandchildren how to identify trees and plants and passed down his love of gardening to all his children. When a tornado decimated their farm in 1979, his children were amazed at the number of people who came from far and wide to help out and donate money, showing them how many people loved Jack and Bea. Jack was a kind and honest man who believed in an honest day's work for an honest day's pay. He was an active community member and participated in many Church events. At Norwich Presbyterian Church he was known for shaking hands and greeting everyone before leaving a service. He went gently into that good night secure in the knowledge that he would be with his Father in heaven that day and that we would all be together again someday. May it be so, but in the mean time he is sadly missed by his loving family.

Friends will be received at the Keith Ovington Funeral Home, 134 King Street, Burford on Friday September 25, 2020 from 6-8 p.m. A private family service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to charities that Jack and Bea supported for many years, Operation Eyesight Universal or Turning Point Youth Services. Keith Ovington 519-449-1112.

Sorry to hear of your husbands passing. I am the daughter of Floyd Walker, who rode to work at White's with Jack for many years. My dad never had a bad word to say about Jack. He was a hardworking man and I'm sure he will be missed by all who knew him. My dad passed away Aug. 2011.
