EILBECK, Jack – after a long, happy, and productive life, it is with sad hearts we say goodbye to Jack, on Wednesday, June 22, 2005, in his 82nd year. He was a loving husband and best friend to his wife Pat for over 60 years. He loved and admired his three daughters, Lynda MacGregor (David), Anne McFadden, and Susie Plumpton (Dan). He was a mentor to his grandchildren Erin, Megan, and Rob, and enjoyed wonderful times with them. Jack graduated from the University of Toronto in Physical and Health Education and entered the recreation world in Brantford and Leaside as Recreation Director. He was the Ontario representative for the Community Programs Branch. He joined the faculty of Humber College, where he taught Recreation Leadership before becoming department chair.

Upon retiring, he returned to his beloved Newcastle and became active in the Clarington Older Adults Association, the Newcastle/Bond Head Ratepayers Association, and the Newcastle Village and District Historical Society.
