June 1, 1934 – September 1, 2014
After a brave battle with cancer, Dr. Rene Francis Jones passed away early morning on Monday September 1, 2014 in Edmonton, Alberta at the age of 80 years.
He will be greatly missed as a husband, brother, father, grandfather and friend to the many people he touched along his journey. We are grateful for the many ways in which he touched our lives both as a volunteer in the community and as a professional businessman and most importantly as our family’s pillar of love, strength and wisdom. Rene is survived by his loving wife Nancy, his three sons Anthony (Monica), Daniel (Lailonna) and Robert (Candice); five grandchildren, Aaron, Hayden, Madison, and Michael and Martin; one brother and three sisters, Osborne, Sylvia, Lucile and Rhona. Rene will be remembered for his giving nature, his love for his family and community. While we are deeply saddened by this loss, we are grateful for the profound impact he has made in our lives and for his gift of life he shared these past eighty years.
