ROBLEE – John “Jack”, 92. It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Jack on May 28th, 2019 at Shoreham Village, Chester, Nova Scotia.

After graduating high school he became a salesman and started his successful career in the food industry. He became a salesman for Atlantic Wholesalers in St. John, New Brunswick. He was soon requested by TRA Foods (Sobeys) to come to Nova Scotia’s South Shore and open up this territory for their new warehouse. After many successful years he became manager of Liverpool operations and still later Sales Manager for the South Shore. 35 years with Sobeys went by quickly with John enjoying every day of the sale.
In retirement he enjoyed many winters in Florida, playing bridge and golf several times a week he made many lifelong friends there as well. Between his winter months in Florida he spent much of his time with Horace MacPherson his very dear friend who helped John fill his days and have purpose in his retirement.
