Obituary of Robert Jones

We are heartbroken to announce the passing of Robert Jones at his residence on November 2, 2021, at the age of 62. Devoted soulmate of Ivanka Jones (nee Galic). Loving father of Spencer (Danielle), Lauren (Michael), Christina (Angelo) and Mario (Tammy). He will be sadly missed by his grandchildren; Anthony, Anessa, Julianna and Aiden. Survived by his siblings; Anita Joy (Don Livanec), Sheila (Jim Berg) and Mark Jones. Fondly remembered by his extended family. Predeceased by his mother Jimmie Lou Wray-Klein, his father Robert Jones, and his stepfather Paul Klein.
Robert's words to everyone were "live, laugh and love".
He truly lived life to the fullest. Robert enjoyed vacationing, music, golf, classic cars but most of all being surrounded by family and friends.
Robert’s family will receive relatives and guests at Essentials Cremation and Burial Services Inc., 221 Division Street, Welland on Friday, November 5, 2021, from 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. Due to Covid restrictions, attendance will be monitored, and face masks are required. There will be a reception following the visitation at Casa Mia 3518 Portage Rd. Niagara Falls, Ontario at 8 p.m. As an expression of sympathy, donations to the Alzheimer’s Society or Autism Ontario would be appreciated by the family.

Uncle Rob,
As I write this, and I am bringing forth all of my fond memories of you, its hard to accept that I will never see you again. I remember the last time I talked to you, you gave me a big hug and told me you loved me so much and couldn’t wait to see me next time. I couldn’t imagine a better last moment to have with you, so thank you for your constant kindness. You were a man who had an immeasurable amount of love to give, and you gave it to everyone in your life. Your kindness, your positivity, and your love had a significant impact on the people around you, and will continue to have a positive effect even in your absence. It was a pleasure to know you and spend time with you even though it was only for a handful of years. Our family was so lucky to be blessed with your beautiful soul and we will never forget you. I miss you so much, and I miss coming over to your house and having jam sessions with you, Lauren and Spencer. Those moments are so special to me and I am grateful to have those memories of you. I love you so much, rest in peace, and may we meet again someday❤️

I cannot express enough words to explain how much you meant to us. The thought of not having you present when we come to visit will definitely put an emptiness and hole in our hearts forever ❤️Both you and Ivanka have hosted many outstanding gatherings at your home which we will never forget. The never ending singing, dancing, swimming, Bbq’s, and not to mention your signature DADA specials.
We will forever hold you in our hearts and prayers. We will miss you DADA!🥰😢RIP.
Love You Anna

My Dearest Rob
Words cannot express the void that will remain in our lives without you. Never have I come across a more thoughtful, loving, caring and soft spoken person as you. It was a great pleasure to have known you and will be a great blessing to remember you. We will sing again one day my friend and brother. Respect and Love.

I am deeply saddened and heart broken to see you go so fast. I wish I had the opportunity to see you one more time and express my gratitude for your kindness and your whole hearted love towards your family. You were a great man and did not deserve the pain you went though in the end. Uncle Rob, you were always so cheerful, supportive and down right fun. You would speak to me and my siblings about our future, give us advice and verbalize your support in a way that really changed the way see things. I am so happy to have you as part of our family and I will always hold the times we had together close to my heart. Uncle Rob, I hope you are at peace in heaven, singing and having another life’s worth of fun. Thank you for spreading your joy and love, and for making Aunt Ivanka happy. I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. Rest in Peace Uncle Rob, you left us with beautiful memories we will never forget. I love you and miss you already but I am sure you will be watching us in heaven, silently celebrating our victories and consoling our falls. Thank you for being such a great man, I will never forget you.

My old friend, I was so sorry to hear you passed. Since our families met in the 60’s, I’ve always counted you as a friend. I’ll always remember that big smile and friendship you gave. No matter how many years passed, when we saw each other it was like no time had gone by. You were always Larry to me. My deepest condolences to your Wife, Children, your Brother and Sisters. We will meet again one day.

Robert….you came into my life simply as a neighbour and you left as a dear friend who meant so much to me and our family.. we have shared so many laughs over the years, golf games, nights drinking our favourite bourbon, listening to music or just enjoying each other’s company on the front porch. You left this world far too soon my friend…I will alway treasure the fact that we did meet and become close friends…my life is better because of your friendship. Rest In Peace my dear friend…my condolences to Ivanka, Spencer, Lauren and your entire extended family and friends. You are dearly loved.
