January 20, 1939 - April 29, 2019
Richard “Dick” Jones passed away peacefully in his 80th year, in the presence of loved ones. Beloved, adoring husband of almost 60 years to Anne Jones (née Cummings). Loving, supportive father of Ken Jones (Lisa Lane), Rick Jones (the late Corina), Dave Jones, Carolyn Holmes (Dan), and Nancy Jones (Andrew Harvey). Cherished, jokester grandfather of Ryan (Erin), Connor (Bram), Boden, Curtis, Reed, Maxwell, Jacob, Grant, Cameron, Kelsey, Jordy, and Olivia. He is survived by his two sisters, Mary Lou (Morris) and Elizabeth (John). Richard was born and raised in Peterborough, Ontario, and moved to Cobourg to pursue a career in education. He was a dedicated educator and principal in the PVNC Catholic District School Board for 35 years. His greatest legacy is the family cottage which he built on Big Cedar Lake - it will forever be his favourite place to share with family and friends. Richard loved his wife, his family, his cards, and a good pun. We will miss his wisdom, guidance, kindness, and most of all his wonderful sense of humour.
