John Richard "Jack" Rink

November 20, 1953 ~ February 22, 2021 (age 67)


             It is with great sadness to announce the sudden passing of Jack on February 22, 2021 at the age of 67 years at the Neepawa Hospital.

            Jack was born on November 20, 1953 at the Gladstone Hospital to George and Mary Rink - a brother to Pat, Terrance, Debbie and Wendy.

            Jack grew up on a farm in the Blake District where he attended schooling for his early years, later moving to Gladstone where he met the love of his life Cathy.  Together they lived in Gladstone and were married on August 11, 1976.  They were blessed with three children.

            Jack and brother Terrance owned their own business (Rink Construction) where they serviced the Glastone area for many years until his brother lost his battle to cancer. 

            Later in life, Jack and Cathy got into cattle farming where they spent time calving, tinkering and being with each other.  After 36 years of marriage, Jack lost the love of his life Cathy to cancer. 

            Jack had a witty sense of humour.  He enjoyed reminiscing of the old cars he had and should have kept and started to restore his older mustang.  It was not uncommon to see him cruising in his newer mustang.  Jack also loved to spend time with his grandchildren. 

            Left to cherish his memory are his children Jason, Jeff (Kristen), and Jenilee (Duane); his grandchildren Isaac, Caleb, Denae, Gianna, Liam, Jaxen, Terrence, and Jenelle; his sisters Pat, Debbie (Dave), and Wendy; as well as numerous nieces and nephews, cousins, and friends

            In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Neepawa Palliative Care in Jack's name.
