Our brother Bob, Robert Leon Jones, was taken before his time on August 30 th in the late afternoon. Those that knew Bob remember him as a very kind, caring human being who accomplished a great deal during his short time on earth. He was a husband, a father, a grandfather, an uncle, a brother and a son. He served his country as a Green Beret, a Paratrooper, and a medic in the Special Forces. He was an avid hiker with a special love for the Grand Canyon. Bob loved nature, animals, his friends and family. He had a big heart and was larger than life itself. If you were a friend of Bob’s, you were a friend for life. He made everyone feel like they mattered. He had a great sense of humor and a talent for writing poetry and stories that were usually about a loved one or an experience of his. He was a great storyteller who could captivate you for hours! A more wild but kind spirit you will never meet. A celebration of life will be held at the pavilion in Taylor at the rodeo grounds on Saturday September 26, 2020. Honor guard will start us off at 9:30. Memories will be shared at 10. Luncheon for close friends and family will follow.
