So sorry for your loss. My heart aches for your family. I will never forget Chris’s smile. Thank the good Lord that you have lots of great memories to help you through the hard times.

My heart is broken after hearing the news of Chris’s passing. Growing up Chris and Sandy were second parents to me, welcoming me into their home and including me in times where I faced exclusion everywhere else. At gatherings and Jones family outings Chris and I would always end up apart from the crowd lost in conversation, mostly about how proud he was of his sons, only to rejoin the group later with full plates and more laughs. Despite his condition, Chris always cared about my growth as a person, remembering to ask about my accomplishments, advances and hardships. I’ll cherish the memories and the popcorn shared while cheering Zach on in the bleachers throughout middle school and high school. I’ll always laugh when I think of the times he’d give me hand signals and watch me struggle to back out of the driveway and try not to hit everything. I’ll cherish my last memory of him a few months ago at the hospital where we shared a hug and he assured us he was ready to go home and keep fighting. Sandy, your selflessness and unconditional love for your husband and family is inspiring to all of us. Zach and Logan, love you forever.

Taylor and Margie you are in our prayers. We know how much your dad meant to you. We are so sorry for the loss of such a big part of your life. We love you all so much.

“Wherever a beautiful soul has been, there is a trail of beautiful memories.”

My Deepest Condolences to the family.
I’m praying for your comfort & strength at this time.

Sandy, Logan, Zack and all of Chris’s loving family, please accept my and Ron’s condolences. Chris fought hard but God knew the battle with the tumor was not going to be won, so God took Chris out of the fight and took him to his Heavenly home. What a blessing to know that you will be able to join him someday. God bless you and the rest of your family going forward. Love you, JoDawn & Ron

My heartfelt condolences go out to all of the extended Jones family. I hope that you are able to cherish all of the wonderful memories, and just know that he is in a better place now, without any pain. Much love always.

Oh my Lou, Lora, Sandy & family knowing the Lord was near & dear in Chris’s heart is the only comfort for the loss of our loved ones.
May the ones left behind be preparing themselves for that loving reunion with Chris in Jesus name I pray.
God’s condolences to you all & our complete sympathy for your loss.
In Christ, Steve & Julie Kottman
