Born in Victoria, BC, he was a son of the late Albert and Esther (Brown) Chalk.

Jack served in the Royal Canadian Navy, then worked civil service for the Federal Government in many capacities, including the Dorchester Penitentiary.  He was involved locally in curling and golf.  His passion was playing golf and he loved to share the story of his "Hole in One" on the 7th hole in the Sackville Golf Course.  Always committed to the military, he was a member of the Sackville Royal Canadian Legion.

He will be dearly missed by his dear friend and companion Faye Johnson, Sackville; son Kevin (Patricia), Moncton; son-in-law Andy LeBlanc, Westcock, NB; 4 grandchildren, Terri, Erin, Emily and Marc; great grandchildren Zachary, Kieran and Piper; brother Raymond (Pat), Ottawa, ON, several nieces and nephews.
