Edwin "Eddie" Jones, 68, passed away August 31, 2012 at his home in Casper, Wyoming. Eddie was born August 28, 1944 in Jasper, Texas to Earl Thomas Jones and Cleo Temple Jones. He graduated in 1963 from Morgan City High School in Morgan City, Louisiana.

Eddie served four year in the United States Army and fought in the Vietnam War. He was proud to be a veteran and was a lifetime member of the V.F.W and American Legion.

In 1967, Eddie joined the Welder's Local Union 798, as a journeyman welder, after serving in the Army. He worked in many states as well as overseas. Eddie was a hard worker, and took his welding home in many projects for friends and family. While on a job in Big Piney, Wyoming, he met his future wife and love of his life during an argument over what was a "proper" pork chop.

On December 31, 1986, Eddie married Rose Hughbanks in Casper, the town they would later make their home. During his time in Casper he could always be counted on for help with repairs around the house and on vehicles. His ironworking projects will remain cherished items by all of his friends and family.

Eddie enjoyed working in his shop, fishing, target shooting with his guns, visiting with friends and discussing politics with anyone who would listen.
