It is with great sadness we announce that (Albert) Jack Woods passed away peacefully on May 31, 2017, in Salmon Arm, BC at the age of 83.
Jack was born in the area of Leoville, Saskatchewan on November 9, 1933, but lived most of his life in Golden, BC where he raised a family and owned and operated a successful trucking company.
