March 28, 1952 - Ocotber 4, 2012 It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Jack Rudolph at the age of 60, on October 4, 2012, with Teri, Mitchell and Nanette by his side. Jack passed away peacefully after a very brief but very courageous battle with cancer. He is predeceased by his father Bob, and brother Doug, father and mother-in-law Ed and Nan Docking and brother-in-law Eric Bergman. Jack is survived by his loving wife Teri, son Mitchell (Carissa), and grandson John, mother Jean, brother Dave (Daphne), sisters Ann McLennan, Dorothy (Cam) Hood, and Jeaneen (Brian Houston), brother-in-law Rob Docking (Vickie), sisters-in-law Nanette Moffatt and Marcia Bergman, cousins, nieces and nephews, extended family and dear friends. Jack's proudest moments were his wedding day and the birth of his son, Mitchell, and most recently the birth of his grandson, John. Jack loved being a husband, father and grandfather. Jack was born in Gull Lake Saskatchewan the 5th of 6 children of Robert Vern Rudolph and Catherine Jean (Wallace). The family moved to Regina when Jack was a baby and then to Saskatoon when he was 12. Jack attended Brevoort Park Elementary and graduated from Walter Murray Collegiate. During high school Jack joined the Naval Reserve where he met his wife Teri. Jack was a very successful businessman in downtown Saskatoon, as owner and operator of Mansize Mens Wear and Squire Shop Ltd. His passion was the clothing business. He was very knowledgeable in the fashion industry, going on buying trips and shows to stay on top of the latest styles and trends. Jack was a people person. If you were a new customer to the shop, and did not know anyone when you walked in, by the time you left the shop, Jack would know your neck size, sleeve length, waist size, and inseam, as well as how many kids you had, their ages, names and interests. The next time you came into the shop, he would ask you how your mother's hip surgery went. Jack cared about people, quality and a job well done. A Man of honesty, intergrity, and charm. These are the values he lived. It is through his business enterprises that Jack became a long standing member of the 722 Breakfast Club and the Saskatoon Downtown Business Association. Jack's many friends through these associations will remember all the times spent hearing about "The guy who......" Jack's passion for sports lead to coaching of the Arnes in the Kinsmen football league. Jack also attended as many Riders, Huskies and Hilltops games as time allowed. He was undoubtably the best armchair coach the Montreal Canadiens could have had. Much of Jack's leisure time was spent around the firepit at Pike Lake with family and friends enjoying a beer and cigar. The family would like to express their thanks to the doctors, nurses and medical staff at the St. Paul's Hospital and ward 6100 at the Royal University Hospital, as well as the Saskatoon Cancer Centre for their care and compassion over the past several months. A celebration of Jack's life will be held on Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 1:00 PM at Saskatoon Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency or the charity of your choice.
