Help Family Bury Uninsured Son

Donation protected
Yesterday, 12.16.22, Patrick Ryan Jones, born 3.1.82, died unexpectedly. At this time, his cause of death hasn't been determined, but he was alone and found by a neighbor in Patrick's backyard. The Lubbock Sheriff Dept. detective Jason Johnson is investigating this as a possible homicide/foul play incident due to the circumstances surrounding his demise.

It's possible that he had a reoccurrence of the brain tumor that took his sight from one eye, and/or an epileptic seizure incident that he subsequently developed after the brain tumor removal in 2008.

His employment didn't provide health or life insurance, and his personal assets don't cover the costs of his burial. Immediate family has been affected by the current economic situation since the Covid pandemic began, and we will struggle to have enough to cover a plot, casket liner, casket, burial/service/transport fees, embalming, and other miscellaneous costs that add up.

Patrick had numerous friends and family; he loved, and had many that loved him in the community theater and schools. He was a caring and loving person and would always give the shirt off his back to help others.

We are hoping that the community he touched will remember him and honor him by giving him whatever they can spare to help bury him. If you can't help, it's understood, and know that we'll be posting further information soon pertaining to time/burial place pending the conclusion of the investigation/release of his body.
