John ((Jack)) Neil Bone

September 5, 1927 - October 29, 2014


A long time Cowichan resident and champion of the environment,  Jack died on Oct 29th  at Acacia Ty Mawr care home where he had been a resident for the past 3.5 years. Jack is remembered for his many years as Guides Administrator for the BC Ministry of Environment working for wildlife conservation and management.  After retirement in 1988, from his home base in the Cowichan Valley, he traveled the province teaching CORE and FAC licensing requirement courses. Jack was an active member of the Cowichan Fish and Game Association and took great pride in contributing to the long term stewardship of the Cowichan River. Jack is survived by his loving wife Wendy of 27 years; children, Shelley Smith (Graham), Greg Bone, and Jocelyn Rose; three  granddaughters; sisters Shirley and Kay along with many loved nieces and nephews. Jack was predeceased by brothers Bob and Don.  Wendy and the family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Acacia Ty Mawr for their affection and care over the years.  Jack’s journey was blessed by their skill and kindness.  Jack was loved deeply and will be missed greatly by his family and friends.  In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to a conservation charity of your choice in Jack’s name. No service by request. The family will host a celebration of Jack’s life at a later date.
