Jack Elie Boivin

January 14, 1963 — July 9, 2022

Jack Boivin, beloved son, father and friend, passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by his family on Saturday, July 9, 2022 at the age of 59 years. Jack was a true warrior, despite a difficult battle with cancer, he was tap dancing and cracking jokes until the end.

Jack was born on January 14, 1963 in Calgary, AB. Being the youngest of 3 siblings, Jack’s childhood was spent getting into trouble and torturing those around him through a series of obnoxious pranks and jokes, with his brother, Rob, often serving as his wingman.

Jack started his professional career at Union Tractor, where he worked his way up to Branch Manager. From there, he settled into a job he loved with JR Construction, running their parts department. Over the course of his career, Jack developed a reputation for honesty and integrity and was always good for a laugh.

In 1992, Jack welcomed his son, Brad, followed by his daughter, Nikki, in 1994. They quickly became his life and he loved them with every fibre of his being. Growing up with Jack as a dad was never dull. He was always ready to step into his role as Robin (never Batman!) or spend hours playing Barbie’s. He lovingly built forts, painted nails or played whatever sport he was asked. As they got older, he could often be found on a golf course with Brad, or enjoying a bottle of wine (or 3) with Nikki.

He met the love of his life, Stacey, later in life and they began their hunt for Calgary’s best pizza. Jack and Stacey were always going on adventures, usually with a coffee mug full of wine.

Jack was a dog sitter extraordinaire to his two grand-dogs Chuck and Groot, and was always out playing in the yard with them or sneaking them treats under the table. His love for his first two grandsons paved the way for the coming of his first human grandson, Jackson, in January. In the 5 and a half months that they shared, Jackson became his whole world. He told anyone that would listen (and even those who wouldn’t) about “Little Jack”. It was clear from the start that they were the best of buddies and spent many nights together watching the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Jack was described as a dependable, solid, salt of the earth kind of guy with an incredibly warm heart and quick-witted sense of humour. He always put everyone else’s needs above his own and would give you the shirt off his back without question. He was an avid golfer, a sun worshiper and Coors Lite drinker. You could always count on him to mend your broken heart or have your back in a fight (back in the day, that is). He was my chosen advice giver, my go to concert buddy and favourite dad joke teller.

Jack is predeceased by his brother, Rob Boivin. Left with decades of fond and colorful memories are his parents, Ken and Gail Kercher, his children, Brad Boivin and Nikki (Taylor) Lucuik, his partner, Stacey Wellbrock, his sister Debbie (John) Seymour and their children, Michael, Jess and Eric Seymour, and his grandson (and grand-dogs) Jackson, Chuck and Groot.

A Celebration of Jacks life will be held at a later date. The family will notify loved ones in the future when a service is scheduled. No flowers please. What would have made him the happiest is for you to grab a beer and a slice of Atlas Pizza and reminisce about his shenanigans or play a harmless joke on some unsuspecting sap. If you feel compelled to honour his memory further, donations may be sent to Kids Cancer Care (
