A good heart stopped beating too soon on January 17, 2016 at the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital. Brian was born in Rossland, BC on February 7, 1955 to Thomas and Margaret Gresley-Jones.
After moves from Rossland and Port Alberni, Brian graduated high school in Whitehorse, Yukon where he met the love
of his life Vicki. Brian went on to obtain his Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of British Columbia and his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon. Together, Vicki and Brian settled in Rossland where they raised their two sons.
Brian is loved and remembered by his wife, Vicki Voth; sons, Adam (Melissa) and Ben (Ashley); grandchildren, Owen and
William; brother, Dan (Pat); a loving extended Gresley-Jones family; and, a network of wonderful friends. He is predeceased by his parents.
Brian and his family would like to send a heartfelt thank you to all of those who cared for him in both the Kelowna General
Hospital and the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital.
Thank you to all of the family and friends for your unwavering support, kindness and generosity.
As an expression of sympathy, donations in memory of Brian may be made to the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital
Foundation (Greatest Need). An informal open house will be held in Brian’s honour on Saturday, January 23 from 12:30 to
3:00 p.m. at the Rossland Miners’ Hall.
Brian had a passion for his family, golf, wood carving and caring for animals. He touched so many lives in the community
and his family welcomes stories about him to share with his grandchildren. Please share your stories by dropping off a letter or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You are also invited to leave a personal message of condolence at the family’s online register at www.myalternatives.ca.
