W. Jake Ginter passed away Wednesday, June 5, 2024, at Boundary Trails Health Centre. Jake is survived by his loving wife Deborah, one daughter Samantha (Ralf Sawazki), his mom Evelyn Wall, 5 brothers, 5 sisters, and their families. He is predeceased by his dad, Henry Ginter.

Jake was born to Henry and Evelyn Ginter on September 24, 1959, in Winkler, Manitoba. He was the third oldest of 11 children. In his youth he worked with his dad and brothers in construction. This began his love of working with his hands. Although he was legally blind, he excelled in learning trades and thinking through complex problems. Even when his sight worsened later due to cataracts, he would repair machinery by touch.

Jake was baptized and was a faithful servant of our Father and his Son, Jesus Christ. He was a loving and generous person who would always go out of his way to help someone in need. On August 20, 1994, he married Deb after meeting in a Red River College computer class that he taught. He liked to say she needed a computer guy, and he needed a bookkeeper for a small business he was just starting, and that it was a marriage of convenience. He liked to joke around. In truth, Jake and Deb considered each other soulmates. Jake’s love for computers never subsided. He would stay up all hours of the night troubleshooting problems, unable to sleep without first finding the solution.
While Jake and Deb were blessed by a single daughter, Jake loved children and believed they were gifts from God. He always had time to play with and tease his nieces and nephews. After a full life with his family, Jake passed away after 7 years of bravely fighting heart disease and diabetes. He will always be remembered for his humour, his mind, and his skill.
