1935-2018

Richard was born in Ashland, Oklahoma on January 20, 1935 to Walter and Ruby Dunn Jones. He completed his earthly race at age 83 at home surrounded by his family on June 19, 2018. He fought a hard battle with Alzheimer’s for several years. Richard dedicated his life to God’s mission through preaching, his family, and loving others. Richard was blessed to serve in Ada, OK; St. Louis, MO; Houston, TX; Edmond, OK; and Madill, OK where he retired from the ministry. He preached in gospel meetings for 100 congregations located in Oklahoma, Texas, California, Oregon, Arkansas, Michigan, Illinois, and Indiana. He also led singing for a Jimmy Allen campaign in Canada. He was president of Edmond Noon Kiwanis Club and Madill Rotary Club. He was on the Board of Directors for Sooner Youth Camp for over 30 years, board member for Pettijohn Springs Christian Camp, and Red River Family Encampment in NM for 20 years. His hobbies were his grandchildren, fishing at Lake Texoma for striper, gardening—especially tomatoes, and reading. He is survived by his high school sweetheart and wife of 64 years, Robbie Jones; three children, Rick Jones (Janee), Sherilyn Nashert (Jim), Stephanie Garrett (Pat); grandchildren, Nick (Taylor), Molly, Jimmy, Jon, Kristen (Zak), Ryan, Cody, and Brittany (Nick); along with many beloved family and friends. He is also survived by two brothers, Kenneth and David Jones. He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Mark Jones. A special thank you to Physician’s Choice Hospice (Tessa, Sarah, Jennifer, Heather, Christie, and James), and an extra special thank you to Mary for the love and care given to Richard.

    Beautiful tribute to one of the Lord’s finest servants. He was loved by my entire family. He will always be a huge part of my life as it was through his teaching and sermons that I, my dad and brother Billy grew to love my Lord. Thank you Richard for always being there for me and my family. I know my parents and Richard will be having a great chats.

    Love and blessings to a wonderful family,

    Rick, Billy and Denise Neal Tribbey
