It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Bryan (Bud) Jones. Bud passed away Monday November 7th, 2016 after a tough as nails battle with cancer. He was 96 years old. Bud was a long time resident of Port Alberni. He had a great love for many of natures offerings in the valley including the fishing, the wild blackberries and the wildlife. Bud enjoyed the people in his community immensely and although he was fiercely independent he could be found regularly at the Donut shop having his morning coffee, reading the paper and socializing with the regulars.
Bud leaves behind his granddaughter Allisa, her husband Mike and his great grandchildren Jacob and Jenna. He will be greatly missed by them and his extended family including Ilona, Lynn and Glen, their children Andrea and Kaleigh, Val and Marco, their children Darin and Carla and Janet and John and their children Jessica and Caitlyn.
The family wants to acknowledge the excellent care received by the staff and volunteers at Ty Watson house. The hospice provided Bud a dignified and respectful passing.
A private family gathering will be taking place at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Bud’s memory can be made to Ty Watson House.
