LYON’S BROOK – The death of Charles E. “Char­lie” Jones, for­merly of Lyon’s Brook, oc­curred Wed­nes­day evening, Novem­ber 8, 2017, in Val­ley View Villa, where he resided for the past two years with his wife Doris A. (Munro) Jones.

Born in Stanstead, Que­bec, on Fe­bru­ary 18, 1926, Char­lie was the youngest of three chil­dren born to the late Robert and Eva May (Smith) Jones.

Char­lie spent his early years in Hart­land, New Brunswick, work­ing on farms be­fore mov­ing to Sar­nia, On­tario, where he was a long-term de­liv­ery driver for Sil­ver­wood Dairies. Sil­ver­wood Dairies was the last dairy in Canada to con­vert to mo­tor­ized de­liv­ery, mak­ing Char­lie and his horse Duke one of the last horse and wagon de­liv­ery teams in the coun­try. He moved to Lyon’s Brook in 1976 tak­ing a po­si­tion at Miche­lin Tire from which he re­tired in 1991. He was a mem­ber of the Lyon’s Brook United Church. In his spare time he loved to do wood­work­ing in his shop and play his ac­cor­dion, gui­tar and har­mon­i­cas.

He was pre­de­ceased by his first wife, Lor­raine R. (DeLong) Jones of Sar­nia; sib­lings, Robert Jones and Mary (Jones) Cam­ber, both of Ma­gog, Que­bec; and step­daugh­ter, Linda Munro of Lyon’s Brook.

He is sur­vived by son, Shel­don (Diana) Jones of Sar­nia; their chil­dren, Daniel Jones of Peter­bor­ough; and Jen­nifer (Stephen) Parker; and their daugh­ters, Hai­ley, Eva and Olivia of Kanata; and son, Dar­rell (Mau­reen) Jones of Scots­burn; their chil­dren, Cort­ney at UPEI and Rob­bie at Dal­housie. He is also sur­vived by step­sons, Char­lie (Mary Lou) Munro of Pic­tou Land­ing; their sons, Scott (Sadie) Munro of Ed­mon­ton, Ryan Munro (Erin Grant) of Vic­to­ria; and their son, Alexan­der; and An­drew Munro (Kelly van den Hoogan) of Ft. McMurray; and Ste­wart (Su­san) Munro of Hard­wood Hill; their sons, Adam (Julie) Munro of Truro and their son, Jack; and Ri­ley (Stephanie) Munro of Blackie Road and their son, Joseph.

Cre­ma­tion has taken place. A memo­rial ser­vice will be held in the Lyon’s Brook United Church on Sat­ur­day Novem­ber 18th, 2017, at 11:00 a.m. with re­cep­tion to fol­low in the church hall. Pre­sid­ing will be the Rev. Jim Web­ber-Cook. A burial ser­vice will be held at the grave­side in Sar­nia, On­tario, at a later date. In lieu of flow­ers, do­na­tions in Char­lie’s mem­ory may be made to the Pic­tou County Fuel Fund or a char­ity of your choos­ing.

The fam­ily would like to ex­press their sin­cere ap­pre­ci­a­tion to Dr. El­liott and the nurs­ing staff of 4 South for their ex­cel­lent care of Char­lie while in hos­pi­tal. A spe­cial thank you to the many staff of 2nd floor Val­ley View who not only en­sured com­fort for Char­lie in his last years, but sup­ported and cared for each of us dur­ing our fi­nal week at his bed­side. Your kind­ness will not be for­got­ten.
