He was predeceased by his father, Malcolm Stobie, MD.

Born April 2, 1948 in Oxford, England, Jon attended the Dragon School, Oxford and Trinity College School, Port Hope, Ont. He graduated from Princeton University (Dean's List) in 1971 and Dalhousie University Law School in 1975. He then articled with the law firm of Stewart MacKeen & Covert (now Stewart McKelvey Stirling Scales). Following his admission to the Bar in 1976, Jon clerked with Justice Roland Ritchie of the Supreme Court of Canada. He returned to Halifax in 1977 to join the firm as an associate and became a partner in 1982. Jon practiced law for 28 years, carrying on a diverse litigation practice focusing on commercial, securities, construction and insurance law. Jon was appointed a Queen's Counsel in 2000, a designation which recognizes professional integrity, good character and outstanding contribution to the practice of law. Jon had also been a volunteer with the Phoenix Youth Programs, first as a member of the Board of Directors and most recently as a Trustee.

Jon enjoyed his life to the full, being an avid and skilled fly fisherman, sailor, gardener, guitar player, raconteur, and cook; but, most of all, as a devoted and adoring husband and father. He will be deeply missed by his family, his legions of friends and his colleagues. Visitation with his family will be held on Monday, September 20, at the Saraguay Club, 360 Purcell's Cove Rd., Halifax, from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. A celebration of Jon's life will take place at Pier 21, 1055 Marginal Rd., Halifax, in the Kenneth C.
