Jones and stepmother, Betty Carpenter Jones of Donie; brother, Chester Jones and wife, Tammy of Donie; niece, Alta Vogel and husband, Kris; nephew, Odis Jones and wife, Ashley of Brandon, MS; stepbrothers, Tommy and Ronald Crane of New Hope and Randel Crane of Groesbeck; he also leaves behind his dog, and faithful companion, Squeaky.
