Joseph (Joe) Jones
1938 – 2018
Loving husband, father and grandfather. Joseph (Joe) Jones passed away peacefully in his sleep on Oct.4th, 2018 at Kamloops Hospice House. As a two time cancer survivor. Joe will be remembered for his tenacity and courage during his battle with stage 4 Lung Cancer.
Born August 3, 1938, Joe is a retired Firefighter in Kamloops, seasoned carpenter and a master of handyman. He loves fishing, building boats and railroads, travelling and spending countless hours in his shop creating woodwork for friends and love ones. A romantic at heart, every year he would carve a new love spoon for his wife Mila on their wedding anniversary. Even when he was too sick to get out of bed, he found a way to finish his final love spoon, he never believed in giving up.
Predeceased by his son Greg, Joe is survived by his wife Mila, his children Joe Jr., Allan, Karen and Raymond and his step children Kim, Jam, Jane and Nice, and of course his cat Arthur.
The family would like to extend their sincere thanks to health care staff of Royal Inland Hospital, The BC Cancer Agency, Social Workers, Community Support Workers, and special thanks to his Oncologist Dr. Pwint and Family physician Dr. Susan Vlahos and to the Kamloops Hospice Staff who’s taking Joe’s care until the end of his journey.
