Jacek, Ted
The family of Ted Jacek sadly announce his passing on August 4th, 2020, at age 83. Ted is survived by his wife of nearly 63 years, Marlene (nee McGuirl); his daughter, Cher (Peter Côté), Montreal, QC; sons Ken (Jenny), Fredonia, WI, and Jeff (Neal Sabin), Chicago, IL; grandchildren James, Katharine (Fred Drolet), Jacqi, Julie (Tyler Best), Sebastian (Casey Ferriter) and Kenton; great-grandchildren Ava and Conner; brother Gus and sister Sarah (Ed) O’Gorman, Saskatoon, SK; and many dear nieces, nephews and cousins. He was predeceased by his parents Agatha Deeks (nee Hartman) and Joseph Jacek; sister Madeline (Ron) Erikson; brother-in-law Alan (Susan) Waldie and sister-in-law Jean (nee Bateman) Jacek.
Ted was born Theodore James Jacek on Nov. 22, 1936 in Bradwell, Saskatchewan, and grew up in Saskatoon, SK. He graduated from Nutana Collegiate in 1954 and the University of Saskatchewan in 1960. In 1962 he began his 35-year career with Abbott Laboratories.
In 1957 Ted met and married Marlene. They lived in Saskatoon and Moose Jaw, SK and began raising their family. In 1969 Dad’s career took him and his family first to Montreal, then the USA, Japan and finally suburban Chicago. Upon retirement Ted and Marlene traveled globally and eventually moved permanently to New Smyrna Beach, FL where they continued to enjoy travel, cruises, golf and many social events.

    We were the lucky ones to meet and enjoy friendship with the Jaceks in their New Smyrna Beach retirement community. Ted was the most gracious, fun, pleasant, gentleman around. On the dance floor gliding together as only a long married couple can do... arriving in cheeky costume at a 9 Hole event... Marlene and Ted were the epitome of a classy couple, with a charming wit to boot. It's with a sad heart, then, we send our deepest sympathy to you, Marlene, daughter Cher and all your family. We'll miss Ted terribly. May he rest in peace and may you find comfort in all the great memories you built together.

    Our deepest condolences to you Marlene, all your children and grand-children.

    I have a fond memory of the brief but most warm and inviting visit afforded me, by both Ted and Marlene. I was in Des Plains, IL for training in August of 1981, on telecommunications equipment purchased by AGT (Alberta Government Telephones). Ted graciously drove out to Des Plains to pick me up and then return me one weekend afternoon. I believe it was the first time we were able to get acquainted as first cousins. I was very lucky to have such a wonderful visit.
