REYNARD (DENTY) EZEKIEL JONES December 8, 1940 - December 6, 2015 On Sunday, December 6, 2015, we said goodbye to our husband, father, brother and friend, Denty. Denty will be forever in the hearts of his wife Elsa, children Reynard Jr., Shelley Hamerla (Stephen Hinds), Roxanne Sinclair (Paul) and Rotchelle. He will be dearly missed by his five grandchildren, Arian, Andrzej, Shay, Jordan and Noah; Sorely missed by his surviving siblings, Raymond (Elsie), Jason (Omega), Byron, Evadney, Judy, Annette, Donna (Tracy) and sister-in-law Drin; as well as Imogene Sam, who lived with the family from age 13; and many nephews, nieces, cousins and friends. Predeceased by parents Lucyanna and Ezekiel Jones, sister Veronica Simmonds, and brother Matthew Jones. Denty emigrated from St. Vincent and the Grenadines to Winnipeg in 1978. Prior to immigrating to Winnipeg, Denty was an executive officer with the Government of St. Vincent, and after immigrating to Winnipeg, spent most of his career with CNR, until his retirement in 2005. The family would like to thank Dr. Fred Olynyk, Dr. Harris and the staff at Concordia Hospital, and the homecare palliative nurses for their support and care. We would also like to thank the many friends and family who helped and supported us through this most difficult time.
