Delbert "Dink" Jones was the 5th of 9 children born to James & Mildred (Miller) Jones. He went to school at Sts Peter & Paul Catholic school in Tulsa, OK. In high school he went to Will Rogers High School. After graduation he went to college & got a degree. Then he went to work for a major cookie company where he remained for many years.
When he went to school he was very involved with sports & his dad was his coach more often then not. As he got older he helped his dad coach not only his younger brother but also other kids. Then he got married & had 3 sons of his own.
Although they were later divorced, Dink...just like his dad before him...remained in his sons' lives & was a coach on many of their sports teams. He was not at all a "dead beat dad". His boys were the center of his world & when he had grandkids they were too.
When he was in his late 40's/early 50's he developed health problems. But he didn't let it stop him from being a great dad & grandpa. Unfortunately the health problems finally won when he was only 59. He was buried on 3/5/2008 in the Calvary Cemetery fairly near several of his other relatives. May he RIP.
