Obituary for David Edward Jones

David Edward Jones
March 29th 1954 – March 19th 2024

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of David Edward Jones on March 19th, 2024. David passed away after a lengthy battle with cancer and pulmonary hypertension, at home, with his family by his side.

Left to mourn are his wife, Paulette, children Quinn (JR), Justin (Krystal) and Brittney (Tanner), grandchildren Oliver and Penelope; brothers Harold (Dianne) Dunstan, Robert (Deborah) Dunstan; his brother-in-law Les, and sister-in-law Diane; niece and nephew Ryan (Belinda) and Meghan (Adam); and his great nieces and nephews, Aubrey, Madelyn, Connor, Levi and Isaac, alongside many lifelong friends and colleagues.

Dave enjoyed a long career at Canada Post, first as a mail carrier and then working in labour relations. He appreciated and respected all of his colleagues from offices across Canada, and made many lasting friendships through his work. In his retirement years, Dave enjoyed a variety of simple pastimes. He liked watching sports, CNN and sci-fi shows, puttering around the yard, Sunday dinners with family, babysitting his great-nephews and going to the legion with friends.

Dave’s greatest joy, however, was spending time with his family. He loved his roles as husband, brother, father and uncle, but he most loved being Unc D and Papa to his great nephews and his grandchildren.

We would like to extend a special thank you to the doctors, nurses and palliative team who were involved in his care throughout his illness. Additionally, a special thank you to Deborah Sterritt, for being a friend and confidante for David over the years.

As per David’s wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no funeral service.

In lieu of flowers, donations to Cancercare Manitoba or the Pulmonary Hypertension Association of Canada would be appreciated.
