John “Jack” Macauley

April 23, 2020
It is with great sadness that Jack Macauley’s family announce his sudden passing April 23, 2020. Born 1938 in Wetaskiwin, Jack grew up in Calgary loving hockey, playing for various Junior teams, even trying out for the New York Rangers. He got his degree in Business Administration from Montana State University, married May Overman in 1961, and they had 4 amazing daughters. He found his passion in real estate in 1967 successfully working until 2017. The family lived in Calgary and then Edmonton, purchasing a cottage in 1971 at Sylvan Lake where they enjoyed every summer and weekend. In 1980, Jack moved his family permanently to Sylvan. He played and organized hockey leagues until he was 75 playing over 100 games a year, also mentoring many others through AA. Jack loved family time and watching his 13 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren in their activities. Jack was a man of integrity, with a strong character of love and kindness. He remained active until his last breath before sprinting into the arms of Jesus. He will be sorely missed by his wife of 58 years and their daughters Jacqui Fletcher, Shelley Macauley, Lori Krause, and Shari Rabin. There will be a hugging get together with ice cream in the fall.
