May 1, 1935 – March 15, 2016

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Jack Earl Bogart (80 years) on March 15 2016 at the Prince Rupert Regional Hospital.

Jack was born in Windsor Ontario. He moved his family to Prince Rupert in 1967. Jack and Jean celebrated 57 years of marriage together. He worked as a boom boat operator for Mannings and in Kemano for Euorcan. He spent 24 years working for Skeena Cellulose until he retired. Jack was an avid fisherman and photographer and spent countless hours at China Bar and the waterfront pursuing his hobbies.

Jack was a man of little words, yet was a kind and gentle soul and supported many community organizations such as the BCSPCA, Prince Rupert Wildlife Shelter and the Salvation Army and Thrift Shop.

He is survived by his wife Jean and children Barb and Mark Bogart, brothers Lloyd and Joe Bogart, grandchildren Ryan Bogart, Chelsea and Danielle Wilson, Breanne Bogart, great grandchildren Bradley Wilson, Connor Bogart and Ainsley Krahn.

Thank you to Dr. Kloppers and Dr. Browne, and the nursing staff on the 3rd floor for your care of Jack while in the hospital.

A Celebration of Life will take place on April 2, 2016 at 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. at the Fishermans Hall, 869 Fraser Street. In lieu of flowers, Jack would prefer you donate to a charity of your choice.
