Michael W. Jones
May 10, 1949 - December 18, 2016
Michael Warren Jones left this earth on December 18, 2016 to enjoy a whiskey and a laugh with his dad, mom and baby brother Laine. Mike was born May 10, 1949 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Mike spent forty-nine years with the love of his life, Eilene. He showed his love every day through his actions and words, she was always his first thought. Mike didn't hesitate to tell anyone and everyone how much he loved his wife and made sure she had everything she wanted and needed. Mike always said that he hated kids, but there wasn't a kid alive that didn't love him at first sight. Mike loved hunting, whiskey and cigarettes especially when shared with the people he loved the most. He would have given anyone the shirt off his back if he thought they needed it more than he did. His generosity, kind heart, honesty and integrity was felt by everybody. Dad made friends everywhere he went from 7Eleven to Home Depot and he cherished all the relationships, big and small. His kids grew up in the baseball stands knowing how much he loved the game and the Dodgers. Later in life he found his love for golf and was happiest on the ball, golf course or driving Grease Lightening.
Proceeded in death by his father Burt, mother Elaine (George), brother Laine, and brother in law Allan.
Survived by his cherished and loving wife, Eilene. Daughters Tiffany (Adam), Tonya (Clint), sons Michael (Sarah) and Jason (Michelle). Sisters Jan (Ross) and Peggy. Countless grandkids and great grandkids both biological and ready-mades.
