Bradford (Brad) Jones
Bradford (Brad) Jones, 74, of Riverview, NB, passed away peacefully on January 25, 2023, at the Grass Home.
Born in Chatham, NB, Brad was the oldest of eight children born to Ivan and Joanne (Brown) Jones. In his teen years, Brad began playing with bands locally as a drummer and later moved to Ottawa and Hull to pursue his musical passion. Brad was an entrepreneur at heart and when struck with an idea, he always turned it into a reality. Outside of his career at Hub Meat Packers, Brad owned and operated several businesses including a meat market and restaurant. He enjoyed fly fishing, travelling, woodworking, listening to music, telling a tall tale (or two), making people laugh, and his family, most of all.
Brad will be missed by his mother, Joanne, his beloved wife of 52 years, Heather, his daughter, Beverly Somers (Matt), cherished grandchildren, Jaxon and Jorja; his siblings, Diane (Amos), Gary, Wayne (David), Darlene (Brian), Greg (Brendah), his sister-in-law, Carol Stables and several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his father, Ivan, his sister Maureen, brother Brian, and brother-in-law, Bob Stables.
At Brad’s request, there will be no formal services, however, the family would like to invite everyone to celebrate Brad by taking the time to drum or sing along to their favourite song.
Cremation care is by Salisbury Funeral Homes (506-372-4800).
If so desired, donations in memory of Brad, can be made to the Shriner’s Hospitals for Children or Hospice of Southeast NB.
