Grant L. Jones, Jr., passed away suddenly on Sunday, September 3, 2017, at the age of 54. He was born on March 10, 1963, to his parents, Grant Jones, Sr. and Mary (Hill) Jones. 

Grant was a very devoted employee for many years with Diamond Offshore Drilling as a materials supervisor. He worked in different places around the world and always made lifelong friends. The hardest part was saying goodbye to his family each time.  He enjoyed fishing, hunting, and anything outdoors. He enjoyed spending quality time with his dad, Grant Sr., and grandson, Brayden, that affectionately called him Pawbug. They loved their special times at the family cabin.  He loved his family and he will forever be remembered as a great son, husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend to many.

He is survived by his loving wife of 35 years, Leigh (Sanders) Jones; daughter, Janna Jones; sister, Debra (Jones) Nichols and one precious grandchild, Brayden Jones. 

Grant was preceded in death by a son, John Derek Jones and his mother, Mary Jones.
