Jones, William (Billy) Keith
August 9, 1936 – May 5, 2022
With a lifetime of memories to comfort us and with heavy hearts, we announce the sudden passing of our husband, father, grandfather and brother on May 5, 2022, in his 86th year. Beloved husband of Margaret Jones (Skuce) for 62 years and dear father of Debbie (Roy) and Brian (Cathy). Loving Pappa to Chelsea (Jonathan), Kayla and Olivia. Born and raised in Ottawa, Billy was one of 8 children born to the late Frederick A. Jones and Lilly Jones (Carrier). Brother to Linda (Marial), Nancy Blaedow and Michael (Camilla). Predeceased by brother Gary (Heather) and sisters Marilyn Pitt (Bill), Judy Leonard and Patti Rodney (Jimmy). Billy will be remembered fondly to his many nieces and nephews. Billy was a tradesman working in ventilation and air conditioning starting with his father and later as a contractor with local builders before he retired. Throughout his life, Billy enjoyed all things outdoors: fishing, hunting, skidooing, golfing and gardening. He especially loved his cottage that he proudly built for our family that we will forever cherish and take care of. We were blessed with a wonderful husband, an amazing father and a much-adored pappa. He was a kind gentle soul who was always there for his friends and family. He made us laugh and sometimes left us shaking our heads on his unique approach to things around the house and cottage. How lucky were we to have had him for 86 years, to love him, to be loved by him, and to have the many memories that we will share and laugh about for the rest of our lives, until we meet again. Visitation will be held at the Garden Chapel of Tubman Funeral Homes, 3440 Richmond Road (between Bayshore and Baseline rd.) on Monday, May 9, 2022, from 1-3 and 6-8 p.m. Funeral Service will be held in the chapel on Tuesday, May 10, 2022, at 1 p.m., followed by a burial at Capital Memorial Gardens. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a charity of your choice. Condolences, tributes and donations may be made at www.tubmanfuneralhomes.com
