David Henry Jones

November 27, 1935 ~ November 8, 2002


David Henry Jones passed away peacefully with his family by his side on November 8, 2002 at the age of 66. David was predeceased by his grandparents David and Jane Jones of Wales, U.K., Henry and Ellen McCabe and father David Sr. of Courtenay.

“Sonny” will be greatly missed by his mother Mary of extended care; his loving wife of 39 years Betty-Lou; daughters: Cheryl (Blair) Rogers, Corinne (Dave) Pisto; granddaughters: Amanda, Selena and Sarah. Also left to mourn are his sister Gwyneth (Arnold) Epp, brother John (Jody) Jones all of Courtenay, as well as several nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws and many close friends.

Sonny was born and raised in the Comox Valley where he spent many years behind the wheel of a semi truck. He also enjoyed his hobby farm where he raised a few beef cattle. Sonny had a warm smile and a big heart. He had a lot of friends and always had time to sit down with them and enjoy a beer.

There will be no service at Sonny’s request. A private family gathering was held. In lieu of flowers a donation to the Parkinson Foundation of Canada in the name of David would be greatly appreciated. The Parkinson Foundation of Canada, 390 Bay St., Suite 710, Toronto, Ontario M5H 2Y2 1-800-565-3000
