February 26, 1946 – October 23, 2017
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Robert David Jones (D.J.) on October 23, 2017 at Kootenay Lake Regional Hospital in Nelson. D.J. passed after a long, brave fight with cancer.
Davey was born on February 26, 1946 in Liverpool England. In 1957 he immigrated to Canada with his parents and two sisters Lesley and Glennis, and the family settled in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
In 1970 Davey headed west to the Kootenays where he remained for the rest of his life. Davey made many, many friends along his journey of life who will deeply miss him.
D.J was recently pre-deceased by his wife Joey Jones and survived by 5 children Lesley, Wendy, Chris, Wayne, and Jeffery, and by two step sons Kessler and Logan, along with grandchildren and great grand children all of who will miss sense of humour and caring nature which remained with him until his final days.
The celebration of life for Davey and Joey will be held in Salmo on August 18, 2018. Contact Jeff at (250)- 608-3079 for information on the memorial.
