Jack Forsyth 1941-2011

It is with great sadness that Hockey Manitoba announces the passing of former Hockey Manitoba President Mr. Jack Forsyth.

Jack served as the President of the Hockey Manitoba for 3 years  starting in 2001 and concluding in 2004 and during that time was  instrumental in several advancements in the game.

An avid Montreal  Canadians supporter Jack was actively involved in the game for over 6  decades serving the game as a player, coach, official and administrator.  Jack was passionate, enthusiastic and held strong beliefs on how the  game should be managed and his contribution to the sport was indeed  impressive.

Jack served on the Hockey Canada Board of Directors from 2001 – 2007,  the final 3 years as the National Chair of Minor Hockey. In 2008 Jack  was awarded the Hockey Canada Order of Merit which is presented to  association members who have made outstanding contributions to amateur  hockey in Canada. Jack is recognized as a Life Member of Hockey Manitoba  and also served as the Commissioner of the Manitoba Midget AAA Hockey  League for over 20 years.

Jack was a devoted orienteer and a keen football fan and considered the  Green Bay Packers and Edmonton Eskimos as his favorite teams. Jack  leaves behind his wife Phyllis, son Keith, daughter Krista, and their  respective families.

Funeral will be at 2:00 p.m. CDT Monday, March 28, 2011 at the Town Hall in Hartney.
