Friis, Jon Anders – Age 56. Born in Lawrencetown, Halifax Co., Jon's great adventure came to an end June 17, 2016.
He was predeceased by his parents, Jack and Avernia Friis. He is survived by his loving wife and best friend, Sylvie; stepdaughter, Julie and her husband Chris; granddaughter, Olivia; brothers, Michael, Chris, David, Erik, Bruce, Neil; sister, Heidi, and their families.
Quick witted and a jack of all trades, he was an entrepreneur, hobby farmer, folk artist, and had a passion for anything mechanical, especially his beloved westy, "Lucy".
A memorial service will be held on Saturday at 6 p.m. in Good Shepherd Church, 3621 Lawrencetown Rd. (Hwy. 207). In lieu of flowers or donations, Jon would prefer that we all live our lives in harmony, and please don't litter.
Arrangements are under the direction of Arimathea Funeral Cooperative, Upper Musquodoboit.
