    Notes 
    • He was the son of George HEROD and Mildred HUME.

      Pat Kelderman wrote, "I didn't know Uncle Jack that well. I had met him, with Aunt Ina, at several New Years Eve parties at Uncle Art and Aunt Doris Thompson while I was living there in 1964. They owned a Century farm on Regional Rd 59 in Oneida twp, Haldimand Co., Ontario. The farm had crops of wheat, oats, barley etc. Jack hired men to take in the crops. In 1988 their grandson John Philip stayed with them after he left his parents home in Rainy River, Ontario.

      Mom says that at one point in time, early in their marriage, Jack and Ina lived in Toronto. My Mom, Lola and Roy TIMSON would often go and play a game of cards with Jack and Ina. Uncle Jack was a carpenter and built homes in the Caledonia area.

      In 1999, Jack was diagnosed with Alzheimers or Dementia and Ina could no longer care for him at home. He moved into Grandview Lodge in Dunnville. Family would visit him there. Phil would come often and take him for a ride in his truck. The disease progressed and soon Jack was no longer mobile and his health was failing. Jack died in July 2005, was cremated and interred in the Gore Cemetery next to his wife Ina, who had predeceased him in May 2005. The farm was sold to the neighbour''.
