May 24, 1973 – July 4, 2014
It is with great sadness I announce that after almost a year long courageous battle with cancer, my son Michael K.B. Jones lost the fight on July 4, 2014.
Michael leaves behind his supportive and loving wife Jana (her parents Moe and Joanne Christenson, brother Dane & family) Parents Arlene (Joe) Rushton; Gordon (Deanna) Jones and his devoted sister Sheri (Lyle) Hatton.
Michael also leaves behind his Step Brother Mark, Half Sisters; Chantel and Sarah, his Nieces and Nephews, his many Aunts and Uncles, Cousins, Family and Dear Friends. Michael was born in 100 Mile House on May 24, 1973 and attended 108 School from K to Grade 7. Later he moved to Nanaimo to make his home there but he never forgot his ties to the Cariboo. Michael loved the outdoors and often shared his stories of camping and fishing. Michael opened his own business in Nanaimo reaching out to youth and adults alike who loved gaming activities. Michael loved his work but he loved his wife Jana and appreciated her love for him so much more. All of us witnessed their ongoing commitment to each other.
Michael will be missed as our broken hearts mend in his absence but we all know we will see him again when we reach our eternal home.
Thank you to all for your tremendous support in so many caring ways.
Arlene and Joe Rushton and all of Mike’s Family.
There will be a Celebration of Life “To be Announced”
