Victim of BP oil rig explosion.
Gordon Lewis Jones, a loving husband, father, son, brother and friend, is presumed to have been killed Tuesday, April 20, 2010, as the result of a tragic offshore accident.
He was 28, born June 26, 1981. Gordon attended St. Aloysius Catholic School in Baton Rouge, before attending Catholic High School and graduating from there in 1999. Thereafter, he attended and graduated from LSU, where he met his wife, Michelle.
Gordon was everyone's friend and enjoyed spending time with his family. In many respects, he was the glue that bound his family together. He was an excellent golfer and played often during his days at Catholic High and LSU, although he readily shifted his time from golf to his family as it continued to grow. One of Gordon's greatest personality traits was his affinity for joke telling, and we will always remember his distinctive, and sometimes obnoxious, laugh. A true testament to Gordon's thoughtfulness and willingness to help others was his reported actions on behalf of his fellow workers immediately before his death.
Visitation at Rabenhorst Funeral Home, 825 Government St., Baton Rouge, Sunday, April 25, was from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Visitation at St. Aloysius Catholic Church, 2025 Stuart Ave., Monday, April 26, from 11:30 a.m. until a memorial Mass at 1:30 p.m.
He is survived by his wife, Michelle Mummert Jones; a son, Stafford Hess Jones; an unborn son, Maxwell Gordon Jones; mother, Eilleen Kean Jones; father, Keith Dunn Jones; brother, Christopher Keith Jones; sister, Kathleen Jones Goodlife; grandparents, Arnott Lewis and Edwina Jones; and numerous other family members, in-laws, nieces and nephews.
Preceded in death by his grandparents, R. Gordon Kean Jr. and Eilleen Murphy Kean. Memorial donations may be made to the Baton Rouge Area Foundation for the Gordon Jones Memorial Fund, 402 N. Fourth St., Baton Rouge, LA 70802
