Jacques Gabriel Filiatrault was granted his angel wings on February 26th, 2018 at the age of 88 years.  Jack passed away peacefully with a farewell tear and a smile surrounded by his loving family.

Jack was born February 1st, 1930 in Verner, Ontario to the late Armand Filiatrault and Delvina Legault.  He is predeceased by his siblings, Johny (Pam), Jeanne, Gérard (Père Richard), Barney (Mercedes), Denise(Jean) and grandchildren Jannique, Annique and Renée.

Jack will forever be remembered by his devoted wife of 60 years, Jeannine and his loving children; Michelle (Marcel), Guy (Pat), Jean-Marc (Denise), Roger (Lise), Danielle (Paul), Alain (Sandy), as well as 18 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. He was also the caring brother to Roger (Fernande-deceased), Guy (Père Jean-Jacques), Simone, Juliette (Sœur Gabriel), Louis, Gabriel (Vivian) along with many other family members and countless friends who were blessed to have him in their lives.

Jack was a retired owner of Jack’s Shell in North Bay as well as a proud and devoted 4th degree Knight of Columbus.  Jack touched the lives of many people with his smile and generosity and he maintained his trademark sense of humour all the way to the end.

The family will receive visitors at Hillside Funeral Services on Airport Rd. on, Thursday, March 1st, from 2:00-4:00 pm and from 7:00-9:00 pm. Funeral mass will be celebrated at St-Vincent de Paul church on Wyld St. on Friday, March 2nd, at 10:30 am.

The family would like to thank Dr. King, Dr. Pearce, staff at the Daffodil Lodge, the North Bay LHINS and NBRHC for their compassionate care and support given to our Father in his time of  need.

In lieu of flowers please make donations to the Daffodil Lodge in Sudbury or the Nipissing Serenity Hospice. 

Till we meet again, in our hearts always Papa (St-Jacques)

Jack you were like a second father to me growing up. Always so kind, patient not a mean bone in your body. You were such a beautiful kind soul. Your smile was like no other. May you rest in peace!
Danielle and Janie, they say when we lose a loved one here on earth, we gain an angel in heaven that watches over us. May you take comfort in knowing that you have an angel to watch over you. May you remember all the beautiful memories and times you shared together.
Jeannine, Alain, Roger, Guy, Michelle and Jean-Marc, my sincere condolences.

My deepest Sympathy to Jack's familly. I've know Jack and Jeanine for many years, I worked with him at Guy's shell in the 60's. Every time I would come to North bay from Toronto I would always go to Jack for an oil change. He loved a good joke always laughing. Good memories..

To the Filiatraults and extended family,
My heartfelt condolences to all of you. From the Filiatrault's that I've had the pleasure of meeting, you all share the endearing qualities of an abundance of love and laughter which I'm sure Mr. Filiatrault helped instil in you. What a gift, to share in and carry on that legacy. My prayers are with you.
Lots of love, Jen
