He is preceded in death by his father, Richmond Jones, mother, Ruby Jones, sister, Audrey Jones, and sister, Elaine Bucher.

Sonny loved to build and work on vehicles. His prize possession was Above the Law. He was the kind of man that would help anyone. Fishing, welding, not getting his picture taken, putting babies to sleep, working in the garage, and just cracking up jokes with friends and family is what he loved to do and so much more. Sonny was a man that loved to have a good time with family and friends.
