It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden but peaceful passing of Bill Jones at his home on Wednesday, January 4, 2023 at the age of 82. Predeceased (2020) by his loving wife of 42 years – Wanda, his brother Bobby and parents Fred and Hazel Jones
Bill was a successful and respected businessman in automotive sales in Toronto and part owner of High Class Car Wash in Oakville. He was an avid golfer and long time member of the Islington Golf and Country Club where he enjoyed the camaraderie of his friends, members and staff. He was an organizer and arranged numerous golf junkets to Doral for his golfing friends.
Upon retirement, Bill and Wanda enjoyed travelling and spending time together on many cruises and numerous winter trips to Florida and Mexico to visit close friends.
Bill was a gregarious person – enjoyed good food, fine wine, good music and good company. He also was a classy dresser. He will be remembered as a kind and caring individual who expressed genuine friendship to those around him and who he held close – you know who you are and you reciprocated that friendship. Family was important to Bill and he took great care to be part of their lives.
Left to mourn are: Bill’s Sister Patty Lynn Vassos, Sisters-in-law Bea Wolnik (Mark), Helen Stodulski (Ed), Stella Malec (Ed). Brother–in-law Ted Wojas (Mary). Nephews and Nieces - Chris Wolnik (Anne), Dr. Monica Wolnik (Gene Hettinga), Ed Stodulski (Janeen) , Steven Stodulski (Lisa), Dr. Carolyn Malec (Chris Knaggs), Ryan Malec (Dr. Kristin Armstrong), Matthew Wojas (Rachel), Peter Wojas (Larissa), Robbie, Brandon and Shayne Jones.
He was Great Uncle to many grand nieces and grand nephews.
Sincere thanks to neighbors, friends and family who provided moral support, kindness and compassion to Bill over the past 3 years, especially his life-long friend Craig Bull and cherished companion Masako Oishi.
Gone too soon but not soon to be forgotten. May he rest in peace.
