OBITUARY: John Edward (Jack) MONS (1923-2022)
John Edward (Jack) Mons passed away peacefully in Quebec City at the Maison Paul-Triquet on January 22, 2022 at the age of 98. Son of the late Michael Mons and the late Alvina Whiting, Jack was born in Winnipeg but was a longtime resident of Quebec City. He is predeceased by his best and longtime friend Barbara McLellan and brother William (Bill) (Doreen Boucher).
Jack is survived by his beloved nieces and nephews, Robert Gordon (the late Sharon Mons), Patrick (Valerie Mohns), Brian and Terry.
Jack served with the 160th Squadron of the RAF during the Second World War (1943-1945). Having been posted to the island of Ceylon (Sri Lanka), he completed over 400 hours of successful missions into southeast Asia. Upon his return to Canada, he commenced his lengthy career with the Canadian National Railroad.
Many will remember him as a kind and generous man with a genuine interest in everyone he met. His love for good food and storytelling made for great conversation.

Nérée-Tremblay, Quebec City, G1N 4R8) on June 18, 2022 (details to follow at a later date).
