Lyle Herbert Jones
May 11, 1931 – October 22, 2017 (86 yrs)
Sad to announce the death of Lyle Jones. Died peacefully at home with his wife Brenda by his side.
Lyle had been suffering ill-health for quite some time and now he is free from pain. Moved to the Island at age 5, considered himself a Nanaimoite. Brenda & Lyle met in school, later married here, their 3 boys were born here. Left Nanaimo to pursue employment opportunities returning after 25 yrs. to which they told old and new acquaintances, “they were recycled”.
Predeceased by their son Eric Jones and grandson Mike Jones.
Leaving behind two sons, Gord Jones (Deanna) Nanaimo; Ron Jones (Sandy) Kelowna. 4 grandchildren: Eric, Sheri, Sarah, and Chantel. 4 great-grandchildren: Miki, Mirhret, Logan and Jaxon; nieces, nephews in addition to “inlaws and outlaws”
Grateful to the VIHA professional caregivers with the support of his decision to stay at home, also Dr. David Sims; and most definitely Bonnie Williams (“the daughter we never had”).
Private family gathering at a later date.
