Jake passed away in the evening of August 27, 2014 at the age of 81 at Whitehorse General Hospital. Jake was born in Saskatchewan where he went to school and spent his childhood years. He worked for B.C. Hydro as a heavy duty mechanic until he retired in 1988. He then made his journey to the Yukon where he spent the rest of his life.
He will be dearly missed by his brother Emmanual Heisler and sister-in-law Ev, his sister Mary Reibin and brother-in-law Andrew Reibin, as well as his nieces and nephews. As per Jake’s request there will be no service.
Thank you to Home Care, Dr. Adams, Dr. O’Hearn and the nurses at Whitehorse General Hospital.
