PRICE - Our loving husband, father and grandfather, Ross L. Jones, age 88, passed away suddenly September 11, 2008 at Castleview Hospital in Price.

He was born June 19, 1920 in Clear Creek to John J. and Rebecca Lucas Jones. On March 11, 1946, he married Yvonne Leautaud in Elko, Nev.; and their marriage was later blessed at Notre Dame de Lourdes Catholic Church in Price.

Ross was a lifelong resident of Carbon County, where he shared a deep love for the outdoors.

He enjoyed camping, hunting and fishing with family and friends.

He was an honorary life member of Price Elks Lodge 1550.

Ross served his country in the U.S. Army during World War II and, after returning from the service, he began his career as a mechanic with Redd and Kraync Motors in Price.

Ross loved tinkering in his garage. But after his retirement in 1984, he had a bad habit of misplacing his wrenches for golf clubs. Ross truly loved the game of golf and he especially enjoyed his outings with the "seniors on Tuesday."

He will be dearly missed by all who loved and knew him.

He is survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Yvonne Jones, Price; two sons and one daughter, Randy (Jane) Jones and Gary (Debbie) Jones, both of Grand Junction, Colo.; Marilyn (Kevin) Jewkes, Price; grandchildren, Jesse Jones, Kristie Jones, Brenda (Andrew) Leonard, Brison Jones, Nikole (Lynn) Stanley, Tamra (Derek) Jones and Kevin (Kim) Jewkes; and seven loving great-grandchildren. Preceded in death by his parents, four brothers and three sisters.

Funeral service, Saturday, Sept. 13, Mitchell Funeral Home, Price. Interment, Price City Cemetery, with military honors accorded by the Price American Legion Post 3.
