As many as you know and for those who don't know, My Father Mark Jones Sr. passed away on Sunday, December 6th. He was a great father, leader, provider, and a very influential person in the community.
He worked at PSNS for 25 years and took pride in it every day. He started out as a temporary worker and worked his way to a position in which he was able to pass along his knowledge that he had learned throughout the years. He expected nothing less than perfection and 100% effort. He may not have seen eye to eye with every employee, but he made sure to set the same standards for everyone.
Outside of work, Mark Jones Sr, was a laid back individual. He often bounced from project to project coming up with bigger and better ideas for every one of them. He would not stop a project unless he believed it was to the best of his abilities. His main passion was cars. It didn't matter if it had a V8, Turbo, or even peddles. If it had wheels and it moved, he was interested.
He loved to sit and watch the Seattle Seahawks. The joke often made was that he would complain in the first minute of the game if the team wasn't playing well. This comes back to expecting nothing less than perfection.
He is survived by his beautiful wife, Rose Jones, and his two boys, Jess Jones and Mark Jones. He has been together with Rose for well over 29 years. As with any relationship, they had their ups and downs, but in the end there was no more perfect couple than them. They regularly would sit down together after a long day and talk about work and life together. He always conveyed how much he loved her and that no other woman was made for him then Rose. Mark Jones Sr and Jessie had a special connection. They had the same passion for cars. Many of times you could hear them outside bickering about how to put something together. In the end they would compromise get whatever they were working on together. He would be Jessie's coach for every sport. You could always hear him in the stands yelling for Jessie. Sr and Jr had a special bond together. Though for much of Jr's life, he and his father didn't see eye to eye. Its believed that they were so much alike that is where the disagreements stemmed from. About the time Jr turned 18, they began to form a friendship that would never break. You could always find them sitting in the kitchen talking about whatever popped up in their mind. He will be missed by his family dearly, He was our leader and our mentor and taught all three of us more than we will ever realize.
