Raymond A. Jones

1934 - 2020

Paisiblement à son domicile de Sutton, le 26 février 2020 à l’âge de 85 ans est décédé Raymond Jones entouré de l’amour de son épouse des 52 dernières années, Jo Ann, de son fils Bryn, de sa belle-fille Liane et ses très chers petits-enfants, Mackenzy, Taylor et Devyn.

Né à Montréal le 26 septembre 1934 de feu William (Bill) et feu Jeanne Jones, prédécédé de son frère Ronald lui survie sa jeune sœur Patsy (Deacon).

Ray a suivi les traces de son père en travaillant dans l’entreprise de chaussures pendant 50 ans au niveau de la vente et de la fabrication. Il a aimé voyager, autant au Canada qu’en Europe, passer ses étés au Lac Louisa et au ‘’Lodge’’ à Almart, prenant un grand plaisir à montrer à son fils et ses petits-enfants l’art de la pêche et du crib.

Membre actif du Club Rotary de Westmount et de l’Église Baptiste Snowdon, Ray a toujours été généreux de sa personne envers ses amis et de tous ceux qui l’ont connu. À sa retraite en 1999, Ray et Jo Ann ont déménagé dans les Cantons de l’Est ou il s’est impliqué avec le Club des Lions de Knowlton ainsi qu’au Programme de ski adapté de Owl’s Head.

En 2004 Ray a reçu un ‘’cadeau de la vie très spécial’’ suite à une longue attente une transplantation d’un rein qui lui a permis de vivre encore 15 belles années.

Il a été d’une grande inspiration pour plusieurs, un père formidable, un grand-père adoré et un «Oncle Ray » très spécial pour ses neveux et nièces ainsi que la famille Almart.

La famille désire remercier le Dr. Marcelo Cantarovich, les infirmières, Lorraine et Christa ainsi que toute l’équipe du MUHC TRANSPLANT CLINIC pour plus de 15 années de support constant et de bons soins.

En mémoire de Ray et pour assister tous ceux qui attende une transplantation, des dons seraient grandement appréciés au...

Ray died peacefully at the age of 85 on Feb 26, 2020, at his home in Sutton lovingly surrounded by his wife of 52 years Jo Ann, his son Bryn, daughter-in-law Liane, & devoted grandchildren Mackenzy, Taylor & Devyn.

Born September 26, 1934 in Montreal to William (Bill) & Jeanne Jones, he is survived by his younger sister Patsy (Deacon) and predeceased by his older brother Ronald.

Ray followed in his father’s footsteps, working in the Quebec footwear business, sales and manufacturing for 50 years. He enjoyed many years of travelling across Canada and Europe, summers at Lac Louisa and “the Lodge” at Almart, taking great pleasure teaching his son and grandkids to fish and play crib.

An active member of the Westmount Rotary club and Snowdon Baptist Church, Ray was a kind, gentle, giving friend to all who knew him. Retiring in 1999, Ray & Jo Ann moved to the Eastern townships where he became involved with the Knowlton Lions Club and the Adaptive Ski program at Owl’s Head.

In 2004, Ray received the “special gift of a lifetime” a long-awaited kidney transplant giving him 15 more active years.

He was an inspiration to many, a treasured father, much loved Grandpa, and  special “Uncle  Ray “ to his nieces, nephews and the Almart family.

The family extend their gratitude to Dr. Marcelo Cantarovich, nurses Lorraine, Christa and the entire MUHC TRANSPLANT CLINIC  team for their 15+ years of constant support and caring.

In remembrance of Ray, and to assist those who are every day waiting for a transplant, memorial donations will be gratefully appreciated.
