CLASSIFIED C14 SATURDAY, MAY 30, 2020 CALGARY HERALD PACHECO, Mario Rui Camara March 28, 1980 - May 21, 2020 It is with great sadness that his loving wife Julie Hendrix and their two children, Gabriela Pacheco (11) and Tiago Pacheco (11) announce his sudden and tragic passing on May 21, 2020. Mario was born in Sao Miguel, Azores where he lived with his parents and 6 siblings until he moved to Bermuda in 2005. It was there he met his wife Julie and they were blessed with their twin children, Gabriela and Tiago. They moved to Miami in 2012 and finally to Julie’s hometown of Calgary, AB, Canada in 2017. Mario was an old soul, with a kind and gentle spirit. He was generous and always willing to lend a hand. His positivity and compassion were boundless, and although he was a man of few words, he made an impact on everyone who was blessed to have met him. Mario’s interest in all things mechanical began at an early age, and grew into a career that he loved as an auto-mechanic. Living most of his life by the ocean, you could often find Mario with a fishing rod in his hand, a passion he enjoyed sharing with his children. Family was everything to Mario, especially Julie and his kids, but his heart and love really had no limits. He will be forever cherished. We will be honouring Mario’s life at Eden Brook Funeral Home on Friday, May 29, 2020, at 10:00 a.m. Due to Covid-19, only family will be attending, however we would be grateful for anyone wishing to participat­e to take a moment and reflect at that time. We will feel and appreciate all of your love and support. We plan to have a Celebratio­n of his Life gathering at a future date for all his loved ones. MCWHINNEY, Hugh May 30, 1936 - Winnipeg, Manitoba May 21, 2020 - Calgary, Alberta HURST, John Jack We are saddened to announce the passing of our beloved husband, dedicated father, cherished Opa, and dear friend. Hugh Mcwhinney passed away in Calgary, Alberta, with his family at his side, on Thursday May 21, 2020, just shy of his 84th birthday. John (Jack) Hurst passed away suddenly on Sunday, March 29, 2020 at the age of 63, along with his wife, Marilyn de Jesus. Jack was born in Calgary, Alberta and spent his childhood years between Calgary and Port Hilford, Nova Scotia. After graduating from the University of Calgary with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics, he took up a career as a Petroleum Landman and went on to be a partner of Antelope Land Services. He worked as a Petroleum Landman for over 30 years, a career he loved. He was well known for being a skilled negotiator, who was fair and patient. Jack was always there to help out when he could, or offer his opinion when called upon with both grace and humour. In 1983, Jack married his first wife, Glenna, and together they proudly raised their two children just outside of Calgary. Early on, they enjoyed travelling, entertaini­ng, the mountains and working on the acreage. After the passing of Glenna in 2014, Jack wed Marilyn de Jesus in 2019. They had many adventures together, including hiking and travelling. When he could, Jack would spend summer days fly-fishing, one of his most loved hobbies, and fondly regaled about his fishing excursions with his family and friends. Jack was a kind, wonderful and devoted husband, father and grandfathe­r, and will be sorely missed by his children, Jamie (Andrew), Sean (Amy) and grandson, Austin; as well as his stepfather; Greg; stepchildr­en, Isabel (Quinten) and Miguel; sister, Cathie (Tom); brothers-in-law, Dale, Erwin (Rita), Wayne (Debbie) and Alvin (Bonita); and many extended family and friends. Jack was predecease­d by his first wife, Glenna; his parents, Vernon and Jean; his mother-in-law, Olga; sister, Susan; and sister-in-law, Sheryl. Jack will be remembered for his tenacity, humour and generosity. He proudly spent the last few years of his life in his new element, being a grandfathe­r. He was looking forward to taking his grandson Austin on his first fishing trip this summer. A good man who has left us too soon, Jack will be lovingly remembered by his family and friends and forever missed. A Celebratio­n of his Life will be held at a later date. Messages of condolence may be left for the family at www.myalternat­ ALTERNATIV­ES® FUNERAL AND CREMATION SERVICES Serving Calgary and Surroundin­g Areas since 1997 403-216-5111 Hugh Bell Mcwhinney was born May 30, 1936 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He was the fifth of seven children to Ruby and Hugh Mcwhinney. He was predecease­d by his siblings Bill, Bob, Glenn, Pat, and Isabel. He is survived by his brother Bruce. It was in Winnipeg, Manitoba, that Hugh met the love his life, Wilma (nee Heckert); whom he spotted standing outside an ice cream shop when he was on his bicycle across the street. He would say, years later, that he loved her the moment he saw her. Hugh and Wilma left Winnipeg in 1958 when they traveled west to Calgary, Alberta. It was in Calgary that they wed on July 7, 1959 and built their house from the ground up, on 19th St NW. That house is where they built their lives together, raised their family, and remained for 60 years. Hugh leaves behind his cherished wife Wilma, 87, who is his heart and soul. He will be greatly missed by his family; his son Cory, his wife Nicole, and their children Liam, Sarah, Zoey and Sophie; as well as his daughter Tanya, her partner Bill, and her children Noah, Hailey and Damon. He also leaves behind his dear Brother and Sisters-in-law, and many beloved nieces and nephews, with whom he shared very special relationsh­ips. Hugh and Wilma were Foster Parents for many years. Hugh reflected back on that time, honoured to have been a part of the lives of Guy Jason Menary, Peter Bagu, Carole-ann B, as well as Keith and Chris J. His legacy of foster parenting was continued by Tanya, Cory, and Guy, as they were raised with his desire to help those in need and his compassion. "H.B. Mcwhinney" was a character like no other. To all those he encountere­d, especially those blessed enough to call him family, he brought laughter and entertainm­ent, providing ample stories of his eclectic ways, witty sarcasm, and incredible sense of humour. It is that very quality about him that was the true essence of who he was, and will be deeply missed by all who knew him. He was a strong and very hard working man, who lived a simple life, happiest when he was just surrounded by his children and grandchild­ren. Huey was the life of the party, loved to be around people, and would chat up anyone he came across. He was so deeply appreciate­d by his friends and family for his loyalty, integrity, and the way he always took care of those he loved. He took pride in the life he gave his family, the home he built, and how he provided for them. Among the many "Huey-ism" phrases he so often repeated, "Always Remember The Good Times" was perhaps his most spoken. We will go forward doing just that, and being grateful for the time we had with this amazing man. JAKAB, Piroska (Patricia) Hugh will be cremated on May 30, which would have been his 84th birthday. A service will be held at a future date to honour him and gather in his memory.

She met her husband Lajos Jakab, in Calgary, at a Hungarian dance. She helped nurse him back to health the night they met and Lajos knew then that she was the one. They were married on August 3, 1967 and celebrated 51 loving years together. Piroska and Lajos bought a farm just outside of Calgary where they spent many years raising their children. When they moved back to the city, Piroska worked as an upholstere­r before retiring in 1990. She had many hobbies and was always keeping busy, especially in her garden in the summer months. If you knew her, you knew how amazing her cooking was, she was her happiest when feeding everyone that came to visit. She is survived by her son, Alex Jakab; granddaugh­ters, Krisztina Tornyos, Jennifer Palmer and Lindsay Jakab and great grandchild­ren Barni, Laura, David, Ziya and Vylet. She was predecease­d by her loving husband Lajos and her two beautiful daughters, Irene Tornyos Jozsefne and Patricia Jakab. She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.
