Jonathan Nathaniel Blinston

April 10, 2014 5 Condolences Print Obituary

Jonathan Nathaniel Blinston was born on February 13, 1981, in Burnaby, BC. He lived his life based on loyalty and sheer joy. He was a true friend and loved by so many. At the age of 33, he was honoured to be chosen to go on a business trip to China. His friends, family and he were all so proud of his accomplishments. On March 17, 2014, while on route to his exciting trip, he fell asleep on his "bad ass big seat." There, on top of the world, he passed away peacefully.  Jonathan is survived by his love Myrna; his son and best friend Ethan; his parents Julie and Rick; his brother Joshua; and his sisters Jenna and Cassandra.

A Private Family Memorial Service will be held on Friday, April 11, 2014. Close friends and family are welcome to celebrate Jonathan's life at the Edmonton Oil Field Technical Society (OTS), 2104 156 Street SW, Saturday, April 12, 3:30 p.m.

  1. We just wanted to say how sorry we are about the sudden passing of Jon. Even though we only saw him occasionally, when we did he always had a huge grin and was always so happy. He probably got more out of those 33 years than some people get in a lifetime.

  2. It is with heart felt sorrow that we pass on our condolences to Myrna,Ethan, and the rest of Jonathan’s family. It is sad to lose someone so young ,who had a long promising future ahead of himself.. The pain right now is severe but as the days go by it will be easier, and the memories that you have of Jonathan will help ease that pain. The Blinston family are in our hearts and our prayers. May he rest in Peace

  3. Thinking of you and your family Julie my heart goes out to you all and everything you have been going through.

  4. I had the privilege of working with Jon on a daily basis at Commercial Solutions in Nisku. Jon was one of a kind and was always so friendly. Unfortunately I was out of town on April 12/14 so was not able to attend his memorial. Such a tragedy at such a young age!! My thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time.
