He was employed by Babcock & Wilcox and Ken Tool as a certified welder.
Michael was preceded in death by his father, George Blake Jones Sr.; brother, George Robert Jones; sister, Patricia (Tommy) Jones.
He leaves to cherish his memories, loving daughter, Ashley “Babyface”; mother, Claudia Mae; sister, Barbara Williams; brother, Stanley (Bobbi) Jones of San Diego, CA; sister-in-law, Jeralene Jones-Brown and a host of nieces, nephew and other relatives and friends.
Michael had a “Heart of Gold” he was a loving son, brother, father, uncle and friend. He had a way of finding the good in everybody, no matter where they were in God’s path. His legacy is to teach us all the meaning of unconditional acceptance, agape love and the true value of family and friends.
Michael loved sports, cooking, playing cards and spending time with family. As we send our loved one home to God, we thank you for joining us in saying farewell. Michael you are forever loved and missed.
