James Lewis “Jim” Jones, son of Ted Dean Jones and the late Mary Kaaloa (Kekauoha) Jones, was born December 23, 1966, in Waynoka, Oklahoma, and passed away January 29, 2021, in Waynoka, Oklahoma, at the age of 54 years, 1 month and 6 days.
Jim graduated from Alva High School. He was an avid antique collector in Alva, then opened an antique store in Waynoka about 10 years ago. The more rusty the find, the more he loved the piece.
He enjoyed fishing and spending time with his dad, as well as family and friends. Jim was full of life, always smiling and laughing and he never met a stranger. It didn’t matter what kind of day a person was having or how he was feeling, Jim always made it his mission to make them smile. Jim’s laugh was contagious and could be picked out of a crowd. Jim loved his dogs and his goat. He loved Western Cowboys and their history.
He was preceded in death by his companion of 10 years, Mylinda Walker; and his mother, Mary Jones.
Jim is survived by one son, Jack Jones and wife Amanda of Alva; one daughter, Jamie McAlister and husband Josh of Helena; his father, Teddy Jones of Alva; three brothers, Teddy Jones (of Beatrice, Nebraska), Sam Jones and wife Tamara (of Alva), and William “Bill” Jones and wife Jody (of Arizona); four grandchildren, Morgann, Addisann, Breckyn and Riecyn (all of Alva); other relatives and many friends.
A love fund has been established at Corebank in Waynoka and BancCentral in Alva.
