Another important piece of Boissevain history has now passed.
Jack Douglas Houston passed away in Kelowna, BC on Tuesday, October 13. Long a part of the Boissevain community, known for his service to the town in many capacities, he will be missed by those who remember his broad smile and friendly manner.
Houston was born to Doug and Ethel Houston on May 23, 1936 in Bowsman, Manitoba. The Houston’s moved to Boissevain in 1945, where Jack finished his secondary education before moving on to study pharmacy at the University of Manitoba. This was following in his father’s footsteps, as Doug had purchased Gamble’s business when moving to Boissevain.
