Jackson was preceded in death by his parents, beloved wife, sister Martha F. Gariepy, and brother Alex Brown.
Jackson was a wonderful man to be around and visit whether it be me working night shift or stopping in his room when we had day meetings once in awhile or functions. I enjoyed all your stories and of how fond you talked of your wife Betty and your children. I would sit and listen about the old trucks,tractors (how hot that seat was in the sun because there was no cushion). We would laugh when you spoke of your brother and how you kicked his butt forward and he hit his head on wall and cracked it then your mom would come in to see the commotion going on. Just about every morning before 5am I would bring you a fresh cup of coffee and see your eyes light up and smile when you got coffee ,it was the little things that made my days working the most happiest!!! You're very much so missed and what makes me see understand in a better way is you're with your wife Betty that you so dearly loved and so much missed!!!! RIP dear Jackson keep a watch out over us from above !!

Thinking of you and your family at this time. We were in Bathgate on Sat. remembering what a wonderful childhood I had there. Jackson and Betty were a big part of our Church life. I thank them for that.

So sorry to hear of Jackson's passing. I always enjoyed my visits with him, both during my internship at Pembina County Larger Parish, and beyond. May your faith sustain you through these days.

Jackson's Family, Our deepest sympathy to all of you at this sad and difficult time. Jackson and Betty were always so grateful for the rides that we provided when Jim was busy harvesting. Jackson was a soft spoken gracious guy and always ready to greet you with a smile and a huge hello. Let those who surround you provide comfort and strength. God bless all of you, Don & Michelle Murray
