Perry Emmett Jones, Sr. (68) joined the Lord Jesus in heaven on August 29, 2022. He passed on unexpectedly, at home, in Gardnerville, Nevada due to apparent natural causes.
Perry was born May, 26, 1954 in northern California and resided in the Carson Valley for over four decades. Perry was a hard-working, loyal, and generous man who valued family, faith, and country above all. He was a skilled card player and an avid sports fan, especially of the San Francisco 49ers and Giants. He delighted in observing nature, aviation shows, and
his grandchildren’s games or performances.
Loved ones previously taken into glory (Psalm 73:23-26) include his father Elwood Jones, mother DeLoris (Bourassa) Jones, and younger sister, Sherry (Jones) Hixson. We take comfort in knowing they, and many loved ones, welcomed him with joyous reunion in eternity.
Survived and beloved by many, Perry was... Big brother to Gary Jones and Barry Jones. Supportive father to Perry Emmett Jones Jr., Mindy (Jones) DePaz, and Melissa (Jones) Chamness. Dear friend to former spouse Valee (Jones) Hatcher (mother of his children). Appreciative father-in-law to Jery Rosas, Hugo DePaz, and Tristen Chamness. Steadfast Papa to Madelynn Hall, Kadan Hall, Kiarra DePaz, and Sydney Chamness. Fond uncle, brother-in-law, nephew, and cousin to many.
We will remember and cherish your paramount love, quirky sense of humor, and the sparkling gleam in your eyes.
A celebration of life will be held at Valley Christian Fellowship on Saturday, October 1, 2022 at 10am.
