JONES, Robert David
November 26, 1969 — April 19, 2017
With sorrow we announce David Jones, 47, of Summerland passed away, surrounded by his family on April 19, 2017 at Kelowna General Hospital. David was born in Edmonton, the son of Robert Jones (Victoria) and Jean Jones, née Haryett (Penticton). David met his wife Claire McGowan in Calgary in 1993 and their children Brayden and Chloe were both born there. They have resided in the Okanagan since 2006. David will be deeply missed by his two sisters, Heidi (Victoria) and Julie (Calgary), his stepfather Peter Osborne (Penticton), mother in law Val McGowan (Summerland), father in law Allan McGowan (Tulameen), brothers in law Stephen McGowan (Salt Lake City) and Allan Eisenbart (Calgary), as well as by many other family members across British Columbia and Alberta. David loved his family deeply. One of his passions was cooking. He spent many hours in the kitchen creating feasts for Claire, Brayden and Chloe and he was often called upon to cook for family special occasions, birthdays and holidays. A celebration of life will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to Kelowna General Hospital.
