Joseph “Jack” Harold Ambrose, 98

August 23, 1922 – November 20, 2020
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Jack; beloved husband, father, brother, grandfather and great-grandfather.

Born in Scotland in 1922, Jack joined the Scots Guards at the age of 16 and served in World War II. He was posted to London, England, where he met and married the love of his life, Hilda, in 1943. They settled in England and had a daughter, Janet, in 1948. Following the war Jack put his gift for connecting with people to good use, first becoming a salesman, and eventually opening a grocery store and butcher shop.

In 1982, Jack, along with his wife Hilda, emigrated to Canada so they could be closer to their beloved daughter, son-in-law, and four grandchildren. They settled in the Annapolis Valley and quickly made the community their own, becoming actively involved in a number of clubs and organizations and making many dear friends along the way.

Jack was predeceased by his wife, Hilda (2009); sister, Ella (2018); and his son-in-law, Waynne (2017). He is survived by his daughter, Janet; his four grandchildren, Michelle; Marc (Cherie); Nicolle (Mario); and Julia (Dave); and his four great-grandchildren, Kale; Brendan; Luca; and Matteo. He will be laid to rest in a family service.

Jack was an eternal optimist with a positive outlook on life, and a warm smile and story for everyone he met. He will be missed dearly, but is reunited with Hilda, where they are undoubtedly dancing cheek-to-cheek. In lieu of flowers or donations, please honour Jack’s memory with a kind deed for someone else.
