JONES, Donald Robert

February 15, 1930 – October 2, 2012

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Don Jones, a beloved husband, father, grandfather, mentor and friend. Don passed at age 82 while surrounded by his family.
For 33 years, Don enjoyed a distinguished career as a Professional Engineer in the oil and gas industry. Together he and Mary Ellen, his cherished wife of 57 years, raised seven children in a loving and vibrant household. Upon retirement, Don and Mary Ellen moved to the Columbia Valley, where they enjoyed many happy years in the company of friends and loved ones. Don was a much admired pillar in his family as well as the community, and was an active member of the Knights of Columbus and Canadian Martyrs Catholic Parish. Don was also an avid gardener with a talented green thumb, and enjoyed growing amazing flowers and tomatoes to share with those he knew.
He will be lovingly remembered for his quick wit, strong spirit, and compassionate heart. He leaves behind his wife Mary Ellen; seven children, Guy (Sharon) Jones, Jacky (Dwight) Carter, Jeff (Ruth) Jones, Mark (Nicole) Jones, Tracy (Wilf) McKee, Dave Jones, Kelley (Vince) Davoli, Charese Jones; sixteen grandchildren Brandon (Lindsay) Jones, Janelle Jones and Brad Spence, Skye (Chris) Roland, Sabrina Carter and Raj Makadia, Chris Jones, Lisa Jones, Andrew Jones, Mackenzie Jones, Mara Jones, Rick McKee, Sheri (Paul) Poscente, Terry McKee, Trevor McKee, Alex Davoli, Michael Davoli, Matteo Davoli; two great grandsons Dylan and Porter, as well as numerous extended family.
The family wishes to extend special thanks and gratitude for the compassionate care of Dr. Tejinder Khalsa and the nursing staff of units 100 & 111 of the Foothills Hospital.
Funeral Services will be held at Canadian Martyrs Roman Catholic Parish (712 – 12th Avenue Invermere, BC V0A 1K0) on Tuesday, October 9, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If friends so desire, donations may be made in Don’s name to the Neurological Sciences Foundation of Canada.
