Michael David Jones went home on Tuesday, June 24, 2014.
As the owner of Jones Lawn and Landscaping, he made many friends in the Cleveland/Bradley county area. He was passionate about his work and took great pride in it. Starting from an old trailer and one lawnmower, he built a respectable business that gave him great joy and pride.
Polk County football was always a topic of conversation, and he loved his alma mater and what it stood for. He could be seen at many games in the end zone cheering on “his” team. Most people in the area also knew Mike as “Kid Rock”, because he looked just like him. In his off time, he enjoyed fishing, hunting, music and watching old movies. He was a loving and devoted father to his son, Matt.
He will always be remembered by those who knew him as a compassionate, loving person who helped those in need and gave back as much as he was given.
He is survived by his son, Matthew Jones; mother, Faye Barrett; father, Clarence Jones; stepfather, Walter “Dub” Barrett; brothers: Tim Jones and Keith Barrett; sister, Kim Barrett; and several nieces and nephews who loved him dearly. He will be missed by all, but his spirit will live in all of us forever. Rock On Mike, Rock On.
The family will receive friends from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday, June 28, 2014, at Companion Funeral Services. There will be a procession from the funeral home at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday to Boanerges Baptist Church cemetery with family and friends as pallbearers for internment.
The family would like to extend appreciation to all of the people who shared their stories, memories and love with them during this difficult time.
