The price of these selections also includes the funeral home’s care of the flowers after the funeral and the delivery to the family or facility of choice where they can be rearranged and enjoyed by others for a longer period.

Memorial Candles

A Perpetual Tribute

The solitude and quiet peace of a flickering candle has long been a symbol of remembrance. Each candle lit will remain lit within this memorial website for the period you select. Your thoughtful gesture will be captured both in the candle as well as listed in perpetuity within the tributes section.

Memorial Trees

Circle of Life

In today’s changing world with climate change and environment concerns, “Honoring a Life” allows for family and friends to plant a memorial tree in honor of their loved one and friend. The purchase of a tree creates a beautiful permanent record on the Honoring a Life website, www.honoringalife.org. Each tree is planted through the efforts of Forestry Services throughout North America who determine where the greatest needs for reforestation are. Once planted, the geographical location where the tree is planted will be added to the record. A beautiful card is also sent to the family signifying your thoughtful gesture.

Obituary for John Chapman Jones

John Chapman Jones
July 30, 1962 – May 30, 2012
 
John Chapman Jones, born July 30, 1962 in Austin, Texas, died suddenly of natural causes at his home in Colorado Springs, Colorado on Wednesday, May 30, 2012.  John’s parents were Stephen and Virginia (Hadden) Jones.  He grew up in Norman, Oklahoma, Washington, D.C., and Port Arthur and Orange, Texas. 
 
He is survived by his daughter Hannah Katlin Jones, and father and step-mother Stephen and Sherrel Jones of Enid, Oklahoma.  John’s survivors also include his half-brothers Stephen Mark Jones of San Francisco, California, and Edward Jones of New York City; half-sisters Rachael Jones of Dallas, Cathy Borel and Christy Beck, and his step-father Kenneth Pigg, his aunt Marilyn Hardy and her husband David Hardy (Ret. Rear Admiral, USN) of Arlington, Virginia.  John was predeceased by his mother, maternal grandparents Stuart and Betty Hadden of Port Arthur, an uncle George Hadden of Port Arthur, and his paternal grandparents L. W. and Gladys Jones of Houston, Texas.
 
John was a graduate of the University of Oklahoma (Norman) in 1988 with a B.S. in Environmental Science.  He was active in the Naval ROTC Unit while at the University.  He worked primarily in construction and environmental services, as well as a staff member of the McVeigh defense when his father was appointed by the United States District Court as principal defense counsel.  The bombing trial was held in Denver, Colorado and John fell in love with Colorado and remained there for the rest of his life.  He was a member of the National Audubon Club, an amateur ornithologist with a strong interest in American Eagles and astronomy. 
 
Consistent with his wishes, his remains will be cremated and later scattered in the Rocky Mountains which he so loved and from which he drew his strength.  A memorial service will be held at a later date.
