Family Background

Arthur Ewart Jukes was born in Brandon, Manitoba, on October 12, 1887. (He was often called “Ewart Jukes” and “A.E. Jukes.” Sometimes he was “Johnny” or “Johnnie.” In some cases, people seemed to think that “Johnny” was a diminutive name, not a nickname, so they called him “John Jukes.” In this biography, he is “Arthur.”)

Arthur’s parents were Andrew Jukes (1857-1922) and Rose Halse (1861-1941). Andrew Jukes was  a manager of the Imperial Bank of Canada. He was born in St. Catharines, Ontario, on September 14, 1857. On October 2, 1884, in Brandon, Manitoba, he married Rose Halse, who was born in Toronto, Ontario, on February 9, 1861.

Andrew John Kemball (Budge) Jukes, death notice, Vancouver Sun, Feb. 19, 2008, page D8, column 2; http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/vancouversun/obituary.aspx?n=andrew-john-kemball-jukes-budge&pid=103798202: “Jukes Andrew John Kemball (Budge) Born January 1, 1920, died peacefully in his sleep on February 8, 2008 at home in Parksville, B.C. Survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Olwen, devoted son Andrew and daughter Jane, daughter-in-law Kathy, and adoring grandchildren Mark (Amanda), Jeff, and Andrea, great-grandson Jackson and many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his sisters, Betts Douglas and Rosemary Woodward. Budge’s childhood was spent in Vancouver and his early schooldays at St George’s and later at Trinity College in Ontario. A dedicated officer in the Royal Canadian Navy during the Second World War, having initiated his training and service in Canada. In 1942, he was seconded to the Royal Navy serving in Europe, and North and West Africa on corvettes. After the War, his business career, prompted by his love of maritime, involved him in shipping operations on the B.C. west coast with Union Steamships, Tidewater Shipping and Capilano Shipping. He then became President of Coal Harbour Marina in downtown Vancouver and the Pacific Marina Group. It was during his many happy and formative years at the marina that he is fondly remembered as Head ‘Wharf Rat’, an endearing role bestowed upon him by the tenants and boat owners by whom he was so much admired and respected. Friends and family, both young and old, are reminded of his wonderful sense of humour, engaging story-telling, gifted talent for art and painting and his love of the Big Bands. A true gentleman in every sense of the word, Budge was a man of great fortitude, abiding faith and, above all, undying affection and devoted loyalty to his beloved Olwen. A Celebration of Life will be held for his Island friends at his home in Parksville on Saturday, March 1st and a Memorial Service will be held in Vancouver on Monday, March 3rd at 3:00 p.m. at St. Mary’s Anglican Church (Kerrisdale), W. 37th Ave and Larch Street. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer’s Society or charity of choice would be greatly appreciated.”

Olwen Beatrice (Griffiths) JUKES, death notice; published in Vancouver Sun and/or The Province on Oct. 31, 2009; http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/vancouversun/obituary.aspx?n=olwen-beatrice-jukes-griffiths&pid=135237957: “Jukes Olwen Beatrice (nee Griffiths) Passed away peacefully on Monday, 26 October 2009 after a long illness. Much loved wife of the late Andrew “Budge” Jukes; beloved mother of Andrew (Kathy) and Jane; devoted grandmother to Mark (Amanda), Jeffrey and Andrea and great-grandmother to Jackson. Lovingly remembered by cousins, nieces, nephews and many dear friends around the world. Born in Cardiff, Wales in 1922, Olwen as a young child, with her parents, emigrated to Canada. Raised in Berwick, Nova Scotia, she graduated from Edgehill and went on to serve in the Canadian Navy as a Lieutenant in the Wrens stationed in Halifax, Newfoundland and Ottawa from 1942 to 1945. After her marriage in Ottawa in 1945 she moved to Vancouver. Despite a busy life in Vancouver and bringing up two children, Olwen always found time for others and for many years worked tirelessly as a volunteer for charitable organisations, Save the Children Fund and the Vancouver General Hospital to name but two. An enthusiastic golfer, keen gardener but most importantly a gracious, amusing, fun-loving hostess, Olwen will be fondly remembered for her most generous hospitality, kindness and warm welcome to family, friends and visitors alike. The family would like to express heartfelt thanks to the staff and carers at Arrowsmith Lodge in Parksville for their devotion and dedication to caring for Olwen during her illness. In lieu of flowers, donations in Olwen’s memory can be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of B.C. or a charity of one’s choice. A private family service to be held at a later date.”
