Obituary

Edward Evans Jones, known to his friends as Ed and his family as Ted, was born March 31, 1926. He was the fourth son of six children born to Enos L. Jones and Zetta Priscilla Grace. He was born in their home in Nephi Utah. He lived his first five years near his grandfather’s house where he loved to pick peaches from his tree.
From there they moved to Byron, Wyoming where he lived near his Jones cousins and aunts and uncles. As a boy, he used to run home from school to see if he could beat the bus. They lived on a piece of property that had oil wells on it. It was lovingly referred to as “The lease”. On cold nights he would lay in his bed and watch the snow come in through the cracks in the ceiling. When he was 12 years old, his family moved to Billings, Montana.
A year later they moved across the street from the Logan family where their daughter, Doris, soon caught his eye. They walked to school and dated each other through high school. When he was 17, he enlisted in the United States Coast Guard during WW II. He was stationed mostly in Ketchikan, Alaska. Doris waited for him.
They were married on August 23, 1947 on a hot and humid day in Topeka, Kansas. From there they moved to Provo, Utah where they both attended college at Brigham Young University. Their first child, Mark was born there.
After they graduated, they returned to Billings to work with his dad in his trucking business. When his father retired, he decided not to take over the business, but to go back to school to help children. At first he wanted to be a probation officer. His guidance counselor talked him in to working with grade school kids to help them before they got into trouble. He became a teacher and later a principal.
He loved working with the kids and he also loved having summers off. He would take his wife and children on trips with their trailer and then later bought their cabin where they spent every summer there. The cabin became the gathering place for all of their relatives and friends to visit. He loved to shop and cook for all of the family.
He and Doris took many trips throughout the world. He devoted his life to his wife. When her health began to deteriorate, he took care of her. He cooked and cleaned and did laundry. He loved to serve!
He died on October 3, 2020.
Edward was preceded in death by his mother and father and three brothers. His wife also passed in 2013. He leaves behind five children. Mark (Cathy), Kent (Kimberly), Stan (Chris), Cliff (Diane) and Konni (Tim Davis).
