THEURER, John Albert 'Jack' - (July 19, 1928 - July 8, 2016) -
Peacefully, prayerfully holding his bride's hand, John Albert “Jack” Theurer continued his journey to the Lord.

Jack was a devoted employee for many years at Canadian Bearings in many capacities. In retirement, Jack and Murph spent 25 years at Lake Couchiching and Englewood, Florida. Jack’s last 10 years were spent at St. Elizabeth Village, Hamilton.
