Timothy Lee Jones, 59, took his final ride into the wind on May 5th, 2018 peacefully at his home in Searcy, Arkansas. Tim was born on the 6th of September in 1958 at Three Rivers Area Hospital to Andy Jones Jr. and Martha Kent (Robison).
On April 30, 1988 Tim married Theresa Tilli. They enjoyed thirty years of marriage; building a family and a bond that will never be forgotten. His outlook on life made him a hard worker and great provider for his family. Without complaint, Tim worked at North American Products in three rivers Michigan for 15 years until they closed and many years at Southwest Michigan rubber in Jones Michigan until a heart attack prevented Tim from working again. Tim was an avid outdoorsman. He could out fish the best of them and enjoyed teaching his sons, friends, grandsons and son in law tricks for fishing, hunting and finding morels. However, would never tell where all of his honey holes were. The last couple years that Tim spent in Michigan were on the lakes of Southwest Michigan fishing and bonding with his wife and daughter before moving to Colorado Springs, Colorado. Tim spent a year in Colorado before relocating to Arkansas to be closer to his mom and sister.
Tim leaves behind to cherish his memory, a loving wife, Theresa Jones of Searcy, Arkansas; two sons Joshua (Megan) Quake of Three Rivers, Michigan and Asa (Cassie) Jones of Jonesville, Michigan; one daughter Amy (Steve) Baldwin of Denver, Colorado; parents Andy (Barb) Jones of Three Rivers Michigan and Martha (Boyd) Kent of Judsonia, Arkansas; Brother, Mike (Deb) Jones of three rivers, Michigan and a sister Francis Jones of Judsonia, Arkansas; grandchildren Connor, Caleb, Emersynn, Gavin and Lillian; many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces nephews and friends who were each so special to Tim and a yorkie named Isabella aka Bitty who, for nine years, has never left his side. He is preceded in death by his father in law Josef Tilli of Constantine, Michigan.
There will be a celebration of life at Lonestar church in Hurrican Bottoms, Arkansas. An additional service for his family and friends in Michigan will be held at Calvary Missionary Baptist church in Three Rivers, Michigan. Dates and times are still to be determined by the family.
