Jack Lanthier

LANTHIER, Jack - Jack Lanthier, 87, loved life and lived it to the fullest. With his loving wife Marge by his side for 23 years they shared in the joy of 9 children, Michelle, Peter, Jane, Nancy, Judy, John, and Anne Lanthier; Sue and Sandra Berreth, 9 sons-and-daughters-in-law; 15 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren! Jack was predeceased by Joan Lanthier with whom he shared 38 years of marriage and some 65 Tessaro relatives. Jack was one of four and his brother Bob and sisters, Joan and Phyllis adored him. After graduating from the University of Guelph, Jack was tapped by a new television studio to write and star in their first agricultural production called “Over the Fence.” His keen business acumen and a successful career at Dow led to the establishment of Agrospray which he owned and operated for 35 years. Jack is highly respected by his business partners and the community for innovating and championing change in the agricultural industry. During his working years he also chaired the Hospital and Police Services boards in Tillsonburg. Jack has been "retired" for 27 years keeping busy with travel, volunteerism, cottaging, painting, friends and yes - family. Jack was a thoughtful listener and intellect, always open minded and genuinely kind. The very best thing about Jack was the sparkle in his eye. He constantly looked on the bright side, had an enthusiastically positive attitude bringing much joy into this world. It was a life well lived and he was so loved!13284975

Sparkle in his eye indeed. So many fond memories of this enthusiastic, kind, funny and passionate man. Whether sleepovers as a child in his home or sharing wine in Czech Republic. The world was a better place with Jack Lanthier for sure. Big love to you all.
