February 21, 1967 – January 5, 2019
Van Allen Jones had a fun loving personality and was the one who was guaranteed to give you a laugh. One of his favorite things to do was to get together with his family and friends on the river – he loved the water. He was kind hearted, and generous, to the point of giving you the shirt off his back. He was supportive of all you wanted to do – your happiness was important to him. Van was a diehard Dallas Cowboys fan, who said, “He always wanted the Cowboys to be his pallbearers” so they could let him down one more time. If you knew Van, you knew that he was a sweet funny man who would do anything for anybody.
Left to cheer on the Cowboys are his children, Colton Jones, wife Megan, and Kera Jones; brothers Bill Jones, wife Nancy, and Jerry Jones.
Services for Van Jones were held Tuesday, January 8, 2019 at Truly God’s Country Cowboy Church, Crockett, TX, with David Taylor, officiant. Interment followed at Hagan Cemetery in Crockett, under the direction of Walker & Walker Funeral Home of Grapeland.
