Ottawa's alternative full service funeral choice

Jones, Brian

JONES, Brian

1949 - 2019

Brian Jones


Suddenly at the Queensway Carleton Hospital on September 12, 2019 at the age of 70. Predeceased by his mother Viola Marcotte and father Lionel Jones, Brian will be greatly missed by his Jones cousins, Sandy (Jeff), Alan (Bonnie), Debbie (Bob), Kirk (Joanne) and their families, as well by his closest boyhood friend Bob Ferris and Peter Low. Brian lived most of his life in old Aylmer. He was an avid reader, researcher, wordsmith, and storyteller. An all-around fellow who could make anyone laugh through his stories. Brian graduated from Carleton University with a Master’s Degree in Sociology. He worked for many years at the National Research Council, then owned his own business and finished his career creating at DeSerres. He travelled the world and was the most well-read person many of us will ever know. He was always kind, gentle, down to earth with a big smile, quick wit and humorous stories. We will miss you so much Brian. A Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, October 5, 2019 at 1:00 pm at Christ Church Aylmer, followed by a reception at 101 Symmes Street, Aylmer, Quebec. In place of flowers, donations to Christ Church Aylmer or a charity of your choice would be appreciated. In gratitude, The Jones Family.

We have great memories growing up with Brian. My sisters and I spent all our holidays at our grandmother's in Aylmer, where Brian lived with his parents, Aunty Vi and Uncle Liney. Although for most of our childhood and teens we were very close to Brian, after moving to British Columbia in the 1970's we gradually lost touch with him as our cards, letters and calls went unanswered, but he was never forgotten and we always hoped to see him again.

We are grateful you were able to maintain contact and be family to him, especially after the loss of his parents.

We regret that we are unable to come for Brian's memorial, but will be there in spirit.

With love and sympathy from the Marcotte's, his other first cousins,

Lynda (Tom), Cher and Marlene
