Obituary for Alan Gregory Jones

Alan Jones passed from this world on Sunday, September 17, 2023.

Born in Port Arthur to Laura (Foulds) and Vernon Jones, he graduated from PACI and Lakehead University and received his law degree from Osgoode Hall. He proudly practiced law for 50 years in Thunder Bay, and he would say his best years of practice were spent with his legal assistant Sandra Deluca. He was very grateful for and enjoyed the time spent with his many clients. Alan's favourite place was his cabin at Obonga and he loved holding court on the deck with his many friends at the lake. He will be remembered by his Obonga friends for his humourous, sometimes lengthy, stories which earned him the nickname "Fireside Al".

Predeceased by his parents and his beautiful daughter Lindsay Komar, he is survived by his loving wife Marlene; by his sons Ryan (Monique Gouthro, Rowan, Reid, and Ross) and Parrish Jones; and by his daughter Deserae Komar (Felix Arnone, Hunter, and Sophia). Also mourning his passing are his sister Mary Anne Fossum (Alf), his brother Eero Vuorinen (Carol) and his cousin John Squier (Petra).

The family would like to thank all those involved in Alan's care at TBRHSC: the ICU team, Big Thunder Orthopedics, Orthopedic and Vascular Surgeons, the Internal Medicine Team, the Palliative Care Team, and the caring nurses of 2C, 3C, ICU, and 1A. Heartfelt gratitude is extended to Monique for always being there, advocating for Alan's needs and comfort; to Leanne Baird for helping us to navigate this difficult journey; and to Sandra Deluca, George Kostyshn, and Jeanette for their ongoing support.

A celebration of Alan's life will be held on Saturday, October 7, 2023, at Giorg Ristorante, with drop in between 2 and 4pm. Alan loved his golden retriever Myrtle. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Thunder Bay and District Humane Society or to a charity of choice would be appreciated.
