JONES – Gregory (Greg) Charles

November 3, 1948 – April 16, 2010

Greg Jones, beloved husband of Anne Bury of Springbank and loving and proud father of Julia, Stewart, and Douglas, passed away on Friday, April 16, 2010 at the age of 61 years.

Greg was born in Winnipeg, and lived in Pointe Claire, Quebec, but became a proud Albertan when he moved to Calgary in 1996 with Canadian Pacific.

  3. Dear Anne,

    My deepest condolences. I have such fond memories of Greg since we go back to the late ’60’s working together and enjoying ourselves in our little Friday night group outings. I always admired his level headed demeanor and brilliance. Although time and distance have separated us, I do miss him and knowing Greg was a truly enriching experience.

    To Anne, Julia, Stewart and Douglas

    We are very sorry to hear of the death of Greg, your husband and father, and wish to express our deepest sympathy for your loss. We will always remember Greg for the high standards of professionalism and discipline he demonstrated in his work, and the respect and sense of humour we experienced personally. His intellect and sharpness of mind have always been striking, and his expression of that liveliness at his recent retirement event at Gulf Canada Square will be our enduring memory of him.

    Dear Anne:

    Although we didn’t get out together too often, Greg was a great motorcycling travel companion. On one of our trips he told the story of how he traveled, as a young man, to New Orleans and Texas on quite a small bike. It was then that I realized that beneath the calm, quite exterior was the heart of a true adventurer. I still think of him pretty much every time I get out on my bike.

    Greg is in our thoughts and prayers, as are you and your family.
