John Roy (Jack) Herman
September 12, 1931-November 11, 2021

Jack was born on September 12, 1931, in Ashcroft and lived in Vancouver for a short time before moving to Chase as a young child. He attended Chase Superior School, leaving school at sixteen to work for his grandfather, Merv Reid. Jack was a long-time resident of Chase. He had deep roots in Chase and loved the area.

It is with great sadness that the family of Jack (John Roy) Herman announces that he passed away peacefully on November 11, 2021, with his children at his side. He is predeceased by his wife Mary in June of 2020 and is survived by his children, Jackie (Dave), Merv (Jane), Colin (Gail), and Lyle (Konnie), and eleven grandchildren, Gareth, Megan (Bill), John, Reid (Taylor), Jackie (Jay), Chad, Kassie (Chris), Brock (Kirsten), Blake (Delanie) Denton (Adana) and Jake (Vanessa). He also leaves behind many great-grandchildren: Jace, Teegan, Addison, Laken, Natas, Jesse, Jameson, Jack, Laycee, Weston, Alivia, and Mason.

After working for M.J. Reid Co Ltd in the Shuswap area for many years, the company’s operations ended and, Jack went to work for B.J. Carney in Enderby.  He worked with B.J. Carney until his retirement in 1996. Jack always spoke fondly of the many people he met through work over the years and shared many stories with his family.

Jack will be remembered as a man who was well respected, strong, generous and kind. His calm, caring nature enriched the lives of his family and many friends.  Jack made his entire family feel loved, safe and protected. These are qualities that we can only hope to emulate. We appreciate the great life we had with him and are so grateful to be a part of this family! Words cannot express our sorrow.

Donations in Jack’s memory may be made to Alzheimer’s Society of BC or Heart and Stoke foundation of Canada.

A family celebration will be held at a later date
