John C. “Jack” LeQuesne, 90, Arbor Vitae, passed away peacefully, Friday, July 5, 2013, at his home. 

Jack was educated in the Canadian School System before joining the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1942, and served in Europe until the war’s end. 

Jack married Mary A. Tozer in 1942 and they shared over 61 wonderful years together before Mary’s passing in 2004. Jack and Mary became U.S. Citizens after the end of World War II and moved to Chicago. From Chicago, they moved to River Grove, Ill., Paddock Lake, and finally Arbor Vitae in 1976. 

Jack was actively involved in numerous clubs and organizations. Among them were the Masonic Lodge, Shriners International and the River Grove Nationals. After moving “Up North,” Jack and Mary joined the St. Matthias Episcopal Church in Minocqua. They were very active in the church and both volunteered at the church’s thrift shop. Jack and Mary were also very active in the Cross Country Cruisers Snowmobile Club, where Jack eventually served as president. 

Jack is survived by his two sons, John F. (Jeannie) LeQuesne and James T. (Linda) LeQuesne; five grandchildren, Jason, Brian, Jessica, Laura and John; and three great-grandchildren, Kolton, Colbie and James. 

Jack truly enjoyed his family and the many friends he had in life, and will be sorely missed. 

A memorial service will be held Saturday, Aug. 3, 11 a.m., at St. Matthias Church in Minocqua. 

Bolger Funeral and Cremation Services of Minocqua and Woodruff is handling the arrangements.
