William Alan Jones passed away peacefully on January 26 surrounded by family. He was preceded in death by his parents Bill and Betty Jones, and best friends Pete, Johnny, and Larry. He is survived by his wife Marcie Mitchell - Jones on February 12, 1989. Daughters, Morgan Lee Jones and Marissa Lyn Jones, grandson Ryker, brother Davey (Janie) Jones, nephews Derek (Lauren) Jones and Peyton Riggins (Kristin), and many in laws, nieces, nephews and friends. He was born in Birmingham, raised in East Lake and Roebuck, played sports at Wahouma, Huffman, and South Roebuck, graduating from Banks High in 1970, where he showed off his very cool red 1966 Chevelle SS396. Early years were spent having many great times at Logan Martin Lake with family and friends, and later he enjoyed golf with old friends as well as family time at Hoover Country Club. He was an avid sports fan and there was little chance of stumping him on sports and music trivia. He loved his wife, two daughters, family and friends very much, and he found great joy spending time with his little buddy, 2 year old grandson Ryker. His kindness, generosity, and happiness touched everyone around him and he will be greatly missed. Rest in peace, Apple.
Visitation Monday 4:30-5:00 at Prince of Peace Catholic Church in Hoover, followed by service and reception at the church. In lieu of flowers please send donations to Childrens of Birmingham in honor of Cleft department in honor of his grandson.
