Kenneth Lee Jones, born in Rich Hill, died suddenly on Jan. 28, in Keller, Texas. He was 77 years old.

He was born on Dec. 23, 1940, to Carley and Alta (Swope) Jones of Rich Hill, one of eight children. Ken was a veteran of the United States Navy and was employed by RadioShack for 50 years, retiring as the company’s most tenured employee in 2017. Ken was a loving husband, father, granddad, brother, uncle and cousin. He was loved by all who had the honor of meeting him.

Ken was preceded in death by his parents, Carly and Alta (Swope) Jones; brother, Gene Jones; sister, Joanne (Jones) Long; brother, Carl (Buster) Jones; and brother, Teddy Lynn Jones. Ken is survived by his wife, Diana Jones, of Keller, Texas; son, Christopher (Cassandra) Jones, of Fulton, N.Y.; granddaughters, Hannah Jones, of Virginia Beach, Va., and Casey Jones, of Fulton, N.Y.; brother, Jack (Terresa) Jones, of Parkville, Mo.; sisters, Sue Ellen (Jones) Novak, of Nevada, and Gail Marie Jones, of Rich Hill; as well as several beloved and wonderful nieces, nephews and cousins.

His wicked, sharp sense of humor and capacity for love is his legacy, and lives on in all of us.
