April 8, 1920 – September 16, 2015
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Dad, Granddad and Great Granddad, Ernie Jones.
Ernie will be greatly missed by Daughters: Barbara (Larry), and Wendy and Son Keith (Chris) and his Grandchildren: Gary, Keith, Cate, Debbie, Sharon, Andy, Ken and Jill and his ten Great Grandchildren, as well as the rest of family and friends.
Ernie was pre-deceased by his loving Wife of 71 years, Lily, in 2010 and we believe they are now sharing a “glass or two” and a good chin-wag over family and friends.
Ernie served in the RAF during WWII stationed in Italy, Egypt and Germany. Ernie was an Engineer until his retirement from Atomic Energy in 1980. He had a long, happy and healthy retirement shared with Lily, Children and Grandchildren.
To quote Ernie’s oldest Grandchild Gary, Ernie was “truly one of the sweetest, kindest and most wonderful of people – a person we have all been proud to call Dad or Granddad”.
Ernie’s legacy to us all was his kindness, laughter,? integrity, respect and love. We wish to thank the Nurses, Doctors and others at Campbell River Hospital who helped and supported Dad in his last few weeks at the hospital. We all share many happy memories of good times over the years with Dad and celebrate his life and the profound impact that he had on us all.
