JON DE WEST
1938 – 2011
Jon died on November 3, 2010 leaving his best friend and wife Maureen, his son Gavin, daughter Kierstin and grandchildren Felix and Roman to keep the memories alive and well. Predeceased by his brother Derek (Donna), Jon is survived by his brother Van (Lorna), special sister-in-law Donna (John), nieces and nephews. Jon felt fortunate that his leukemia prognosis allowed him ample opportunity to spend quality time with friends and close family. Heartfelt thanks go out to those both in Mexico and Canada who have been such an important part of Jon’s life and so supportive in these past months.

A memorial ‘open house’ will take place in Vancouver on Friday, November 12th, 3pm-5pm at the home of close family friend Joan Russell, at 237 West 11th (coach house), Vancouver.
