It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our brother Christopher Hugh Jones of Liverpool, NS. Chris left us peacefully while in the care of the Valley Hospice, Kentville, on Saturday, June 4, 2022 following a lengthy illness.
Born on February 1st, 1954, he was the second son of the late R.G.B. (Bev) and Helen (Day) Jones of Liverpool. He is survived by his two brothers, Gren (Gail) of Centreville Mountain, NS and Andrew of Calgary, AB; along with four nieces, Lisa Pinch (Chad) in Port Williams and Rebecca Jones-Boudreau (Richard) in Canning, and Lidia and Marissa Jones of Calgary. He is also survived by grandnephews Zachary, Ronan and Drake. Chris had a big heart and was quick to offer help to those in need. He had many long lasting friendships. While in Hospice care he enjoyed daily visits and calls from family and friends.
Chris was an avid reader who had a great thirst for knowledge. In his early life, Chris developed a love of nature and enjoyed spending time at the camp on Ponhook Lake and environs in Queens County, with his family. He loved to fish and was very adept at catching the biggest trout. He loved to row on both lake and ocean. Chris lived his life in Nova Scotia, and a few years in Calgary. When his father became ill, he moved home to care for his parents. His dedication to their health and wellness was remarkable. Chris had a great interest in birds, and in his last days he found joy in visits from chickadees, cardinals, doves and pheasants that foraged just outside his room. Always quick to smile and laugh, his wonderful sense of humour was with him till the end.Print Obituary & Condolences
