Remembering Doug Jones

It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of John Douglas “Doug” Jones on Sunday, April 21st, 2024 at Kingston General Hospital. He was born in Smiths Falls in 1936, and moved to Brockville in 1952 to join the accounting office of Arthur A. Crawley & Co. Doug was certified as a Chartered Accountant in 1958. He was married to Joan Davies of Brockville from 1959 until her passing in 1988. Doug came to Kingston in 1967, to become a partner in the Kingston accounting office of what is now known as KPMG.

Doug married his soul-mate Kathleen in 1990. He enjoyed many years of camaraderie playing golf and curling at Cataraqui Golf Club. He loved spending winters in Florida, traveling with Kathleen to many countries, and of course gardening. Doug was an adoring husband to Kathleen, and it brought him great happiness being a step-father and grandpa to his family. He will be sadly missed by his sister Ruth and her family, as well as his many friends, neighbours, colleagues, PSW’s, in fact everyone who met him and loved his smile.

Our deep-felt thanks go to the doctors and nurses at KGH for their sensitive care and understanding. On Wednesday May 1st there will be a visitation at James Reid Funeral Home, 1900 John Counter Blvd, Kingston from 3-6 pm. The funeral will take place in their Chapel, on Thursday May 2nd at 2 pm, with a reception to follow. The service will be livestreamed (and recorded), on a private channel from the chapel, to accommodate those that will be unable to be present in person for the service.
