NEWMAN-JONES, Richard E. E. - Died peacefully on December 22, 2017, with family by his side at RĂ©sidence Saint-Louis, Orleans, Ontario. Richard (Ric) was born on May 21, 1941 in Middleton, Nova Scotia to Eric and Evelyn (nee Walker) and was a beloved brother to Jacqueline (Frank) Musgrave; Gordon (Barbara) MacCalden and Edwin (Shirley) Newman-Jones. He is predeceased by both parents and younger brother. Ric and Ruth Whiteley - Wells had three daughters, of whom he was very proud - Evelyn (Darryn) Featherstone; Victoria Newman-Jones and Pamela (Loren) Pearson. He was a cherished grandfather to Stephen, Marin, Ian, Laurel and to great-grandchildren Richard, Stephen Jr., Alexander and Nicholas. Ric was uncle to ten nieces and nephews and their families. As a youth, he was very involved in Scouts, and while attending Port Hope High School was a Royal Canadian Army cadet, then reservist in the Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment. He worked at the Department of Highways and was a well-respected Constable with Port Hope Police (1970-95). He enjoyed all sports but golf and sailing were the closest to his heart. Many hours were spent out on the green or on Lake Ontario with his daughters and friends of the Port Hope Yacht Club. Ric loved Port Hope and volunteered in several community organizations including the Optimist Club and the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 30. In later years, he moved to the East Coast but ultimately returned to Ontario for health reasons. The family would like to thank Russell Meadows Retirement Community for their excellent care over the past years and to St. Louis for his final days. Visitation took place on Friday, December 29th, 2017 at the Ross Funeral Chapel, 135 Walton Street, Port Hope. Service was held in the chapel on Saturday December 30th at 1 p.m. If you wish to make a donation in lieu of flowers, please do to the Nature Conservancy of Canada.
