It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Jackie “Jack” Daku on Saturday, Oct. 1, 2022 at the Regina General Hospital. Jack passed away peacefully among family after a long-fought battle with cancer.
Jack farmed south of Fleming, Sask. for over 45 years, and pipelined for just as many. After he retired, Jack moved back to Kipling where he was closer to his family and many childhood friends. He was actively involved with the Kipling Presbyterian Church and the Bekevar Church restoration project.
Jack had many passions including farming, fishing, dancing and summers at Kenosee Lake. Most of all he enjoyed socializing and visiting with everyone he met.
Jack will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed by his sons, Jared (Krista) and Jason; his parents, Adele and Calvin; his sister, Brenda (Jim); and brothers, Robert (Shauna), Howard (Brenda) and Eric (Tammy); as well as many cousins, nieces, nephews and longtime friends.
The family would like to thank Dr. Tsang and all the staff at the Regina General Hospital who provided excellent care for Jack during his final days.
The funeral service will be held at the Bekevar Presbyterian Church, south of Kipling, on Saturday, Oct. 8, 2022 at 2 p.m. with officiant Marlene Tarr. Following interment, please join the family at the Kipling Community Center for lunch and to share stories and memories of Jack.
In honour of Jack and in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to: The Bekevar Heritage Foundation Inc., Box 502, Kipling Sask. S0G 2S0. Online condolences may be made at
