Born in Halifax, he was the son of the late Mary (Tanner) and Arthur J. Taplin. Jack was a self-taught man, a nonconformist with an irreverent sense of humour.

He was a voracious reader and a big supporter of the Halifax Public Library, particularly the Mobile and Home Bound Services. Jack worked as a barber for many years, most recently at Stadacona in the Chief & PO's Mess. He and Nora retired to the country in 1986 where he helped to care for a variety of animals. They returned to Halifax in 2004 and Jack enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren. He is survived by his loving wife, the former Nora Strachan; daughters, Mary Taplin, Cathy Taplin, and Wendy Callahan;
grandchildren, Kirt Callahan, Stephanie Callahan, Sheila (Kenneth) Callahan-Ruck; his brother, Bernard "Skip" Taplin; and sister, Linda (Ian) Collins. Jack was predeceased by his sister, Kathleen, and his daughter, Pamela. Like his father before him, Jack chose to donate his body to further medical science, giving of himself for the good of others. A memorial service will be held later in December. Donations in Jack's memory can be made to the Bide Awhile Animal Shelter or a charity of your choice. There is a home where I would bide, If trees like men had souls inside - Which is, of course, a fantasy None could conceive but dolts like me É Let others vision Heaven's gate, Dark pine, I dream for me you wait. From Dark Pine by Robert Service.
