With great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Greg, peacefully at home, love surrounding him on Friday August 17, 2012.Greg leaves behind his life partner Barb Joneson and their three children, Barry (Kristine & Ashton), Bret, and Victoria. Greg also leaves his son Jeffery Jones and Jeff”s mom Bernie Pettigrew (Edmonton,Alberta) and his ever-present and faithful companion Kelly. Greg will be greatly missed by his mother Phyllis Anne Jones, brother Chris (Paula May), sister Lanice, and his nieces and nephews, Willis, Eric, Minetta, Jackson, Dana, Shylo, and Richard. Pre-deceased by his father Arthur Crawford Jones, welcoming Greg into the Great Beyond. Greg grew up in Edmonton and attended McNally high-school. After school Greg lived in Edmonton and Lac La Biche Alberta before settling in the Cowichan Valley (Vancouver Island). Greg was a truck driver, woodsman, carpenter, tin basher, plumber, and home gardener. He was also a sailor, camper, polar bear swimmer, and the life of the party. Above all, Greg was a family man, a son, brother, partner, father, uncle; and a friend. Always there to lend a hand, Greg”s cheery support brought sunshine into the lives of all who knew him.
“Oh what we would give to clasp your hand,
Your kind face to see.
To hear your voice, to see your smile
That meant so much to us.
You left so suddenly without goodbye
But memories of you will never die.”
Love you, Greg.

Dear Phyllis, Chris and Lanice, My heartfelt condolences to all of you. Greg was always a caring and loving person to me and my son Jaeson Peterson. I have many fond memories of Mission Beach and the many good times and feelings with your wonderful family. I hope your memories of Greg’s great smile will comfort you.

From: Candy Holland (Horsfield)
Relation: High school classmate

To each family member, my sincere sympathies on losing Greg.

The Edmonton Journal announcement was lovely. I was intrigued to read about this marvellous man, who seemed to have had a busy, happy and adventurous life. And that he made a difference in the lives of so many.

We shared many classes at McNally and I’ve not forgotten him. I found him charming, fun-loving, curious and independent. His spirit remains with me — make the most of every day and, while living on our your own terms, help others.

Wishing each of you peace during this difficult time.
