JONES, Frederick Laurence



1935 - 2017 

I wish I could say that he is racing through the swamp, in his '64 Corvette at Pocono Raceway or knocking over the time clocks at a Corvette slalom. Hold on to those memories. 

My darling husband, best friend and soul mate, Fred Jones, left us on October 12, 2017 to take his place in heaven's garden. He is probably giving instructions as to how to tidy things up back here and debating the responses. He leaves behind a loving family, brother John, nephews Jason and Jeff and their families. Elaine, Shauna and all the Bradley Bunch and a wealth of friends, all too numerous to mention. Father of Michael and Susan, Fred was a social guy who loved to chat and enjoyed the many activities he joined. His true passion (besides his wife, Rosemary, 37 wonderful years together) was restoring old cars. From Corvettes to '31 Fords to Mustangs, the next generation of Joneses carries this on. He was president of the Corvette Club of Ontario and the Canadian Council of Corvette Clubs. He was also a founding member of the Caledon Cruisers. In business he was a successful salesman, manager and Vice President, and loved his diversified career in the graphic arts and printing industry. 

A celebration of Fred's life will be held at the Village by the Arboretum in Guelph. Loving thanks to everyone at Hospice Wellington who cared for all of us during this difficult time. 

You deserve to rest now my love.
