Robert John Jones

Peacefully on Sunday, October 24,2021 Robert passed away at Johnson Memorial Hospital in Gimli, Manitoba.

He will be terribly missed by so many. . . his daughters Patti ( Steve Simard ); Tammie ( Ron Tomyn ) and his son’s Jody Brine and Michael ( Darlene ) Brine. His grandchildren and great grandchildren’s hearts are broken Alicia ( Jaeleigh ) Jones; Brandi (Ashlynn) Jones; Destiny Tomyn and Michael Tomyn; and his wife Sandy Jones.

He will be remembered fondly by his sisters Francis ( late Verl ) McIvor and Elizabeth ( Kurt ) Hoersch and brother Frank ( Rae ) Jones plus numerous nieces and nephews; sisters and brother in laws Diane ( Walter ), Dave ( Linda ); Dale ( Jim ) Ken ( Gail ); Cheryl; Nancy ( Manuel ); Ray ( Ivy ); Casey ( Roberta ); Lori ( Ismael ); Sheila ( John ) and Gary ( Tracy ); his step grandchildren Kaitlynn ( Josh ) and their children Riley, Gus and Mason; Carissa ( Daniel ) and their children Mia and Hadley.

He has rejoined family and friends who have passed on. His parents Mary and Albert Shenton and Johnny Jones; his parents in law Albert and Gwen Jones; brothers Wilfred ( Alfie ), Tommy and Cecil; his sisters Marjorie ( late Bill Sharpe ) , Kathy Cattelier,  Sadie ( late Gaston Lepla ) his best friend Jerry Boucher and many other relatives.

Bob was a hard-working and dedicated employee. He has been employed mainly in manufacturing and trucking industries. He took pride in everything that was handed him.

He loved his family and provided for them the best way he knew how. He loved his grandchildren especially the littlest Ashlynn and Jaeleigh. He would bend over backwards for those munchkins.

Bob was ill for many years with diabetes which eventually caused him to lose his legs. He had numerous heart attacks that caused him to undergo quadruple bypass surgery. His kidneys failed and potassium levels spiked that caused him to have a cardiac arrest. 

The family would like to thank those who provided care and helpfulness to him throughout the years. Firstly, Johnson Memorial Hospital, Betel Nursing Home in Gimli, Cheryl MacGuiness, Darlene Brine, his nephew Desi ( he was so proud of you ), his kids especially Patti who went over and above caring for him ( he loved you so much Patti ) I hope I haven’t missed anyone. 


At Bob’s request, there will be no funeral or Celebration of Life. He will be cremated and interred at a later date at Glen Lawn cemetery.

Special thanks to Scott and Julia at Glen Lawn, Jeanette at Winnipeg Cremation Services and last but not least Interlake Cremation & Memorial Services. Rick, you provided me with valuable information and kindness.

    As you may know Bob loves animals especially small mutts. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to animal shelters and/or rescues in his name.

    For 73 years, you graced this world with your presence. What a shock it was that you passed so quickly. The world lost a good man and I am happy you are reunited with your family especially your Mom, Jerry, your loyal companion Cosby and Scoot will be waiting there for you.
    Finally you are free of pain and resting comfortably. I’m going to miss our phone calls mostly everyday.

    ps. I will make sure Ashlynn and Jaeleigh remember you. They loved you so much ❤❤❤

    My husbnd Red ( mike McCracken) knew Bob his entire life and spent alot of time at his house hanging out with Jody. He would tell me (Rachel) stories all the time about Bob and I never got a chance to meet him or hang out with him but based on what I was told he seems like a really good man. He seems kind, loving, and very caring. I have never heard anything bad about him. sending hugs to the entire family from both me and Red. We both will be thinking of him.

    Bob was a one of a kind guy. I was honoured to meet him through Gary Jones. He was a strict person when needed and he was willing to help you out at a moments notice. Rest peacefully Bob.
