Family meant everything to Dave Jones, who passed away July 14, 2021;  cars and trains came in a close second. Dave was born in Sauk Centre to Henry and Irene Jones on Sept. 15, 1937. He was 83 years young. He graduated from Sauk Centre High School in June 1956, and joined the Air Force two weeks later. He proudly served as a jet mechanic from 1956-60. His claim to fame was a part in the movie, “How the West was Won.” He married Sue (Siedlecki) Jones on April 28, 1973. They were blessed with three wonderful children, Mark, Kim and Don, and one amazing granddaughter, Lynn. Dave worked for Onan for 30 years and retired in 2002. 

He is survived by his wife Sue; children Mark, Kim (Tom) and Don (Becky); granddaughter Lynn; brothers and sisters, Hank, Jean (Dwayne), Eloise, Walt, Kathy (Gene) and Clifford (Vicki); and many relatives and friends.  

He was preceded in death by his parents; and siblings George and Jeanette. His funeral will be at Epiphany Catholic Church in Coon Rapids on Tuesday, July 27, 2021 at 10:30 am.
