having been touched by those friendships..

In memory of our dear friends who's souls have moved
to the front of the rotation

Gabriel Wynne-Jones
           Gabe (our lil' Piglett)

Tragically on Monday, March 7, 2005, as the result of a car accident, Gabe was taken from his loving family. He did not suffer.

Gabe was the treasured son of Elizabeth Collins (Mark O'Reilly) and Phil Wynne-Jones (Bev). He was the dearly loved brother of Josh (JW-Jones) and cherished grandson of Evalyn Collins and the late Kenneth F. Collins and the late Wynne and Sheila B. Wynne-Jones and the godson of John Baird and Wendy Niazi.


I am so very sorry for your loss as a friend or family member of Gabe's. Our hearts are with you, as we know yours are with us.

I thought this would be the best way to notify his friends online... and wish I could speak to everyone directly, but there is a lot to take care of.

My brother was a great man who did not judge anybody, and always saw the beauty of a person for who they were inside.

Gabe is not gone, he lives on in all of us, and will be greatly missed.

I can see him up there with my grandfather, telling him about the things he's missed in the last two years. He is also with my grandmother who had also passed away just eight days earlier.

Love to all of you, and be good to each other,

Josh xoxo

In his very short 22 years Gabe touched many lives with his wit, charm, honesty, kindness and friendship. The younger brother of Blues guitarist JW Jones, he was a talented singer in his own right. Gabe not only excelled at sound engineering & photography but he also had a small role in the 1999 movie "Undercover Angel".
