It is with great sadness that the family and friends of William (Bill) Joseph Jones announce his peaceful passing at the age of 71 at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, September 5, 2012, after a short and courageous battle with cancer. He leaves behind to mourn him, his loving wife, Laura; his children, Lacey (Eric), Becky, Jason (Jan) and stepsons, Jeff (Val) Green and Wade Green. He also leaves his cherished grandchildren: Jacob (Rene), Joshua, Samantha, Cassidy, Dakota and Austin.; his brothers, Thomas (Sandra) and Gord are also left to mourn his passing, as are numerous nieces and nephews and so many wonderful friends on and off the golf course. Bill was predeceased by his parents, Bill and Gladys, and by his loving wife, Susan.

Bill was a true Nanaimoite, born and raised, and he loved his Island. He has even taken a few of his secret fishing holes with him. He will be greatly missed by all those he touched… “until we meet again.”

There will be no funeral at Bill’s request.
