Francis David Adair

July 3rd, 1927 – Aug. 10, 2014


Francis David Adair (alias “g-string Jack”, “the SSI chick magnet” or just plain “Jack”) 87, of Salt Spring Island, B.C. passed away peacefully on Sunday, August 10th at Victoria General Hospital.

Jack is survived by and will be deeply and fondly remembered by his son Carman and his 3 grandchildren (Kristin, Braden and Gordon), his loving niece Nancy Whitford (husband Jeff), all of White Rock, B.C., and by a number of other family members. He will also be dearly remembered by many, many friends on Salt Spring Island where he resided for the past 30 years.

Jack’s wife Connie preceded him in death as well as his sister Bev and brother Ray.

The family both recognizes and appreciates the warm and attentive care provided both at Lady Minto and Victoria General Hospital and we salute all the special people on Salt Spring Island that are like family to Jack.

There will be a Celebration-of-Life service held at the SSI Legion to honour Jack at a date to be announced. 

Memorial donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
