Obituary for Rick Bruce Jones

Worthington, MN

     Richard “Rick” Jones, age 65, of Worthington, MN, left his earthly home on Friday, May 17, 2013 at the Sanford Worthington Medical Center.
     Rick was born on August 27, 1947 in Worthington, MN to Wayne and Jean (Jansen) Jones.  He graduated from Worthington Senior High School in 1965.  After graduation, he proudly served in the US Navy from 1966-1970, serving in Vietnam aboard the U.S.S. Ingersoll DD 652 Destroyer.
     Rick was united in marriage to his high school sweetheart Pam Braun on June 18, 1967 at the Bethel Presbyterian Church in Reading, MN.  They made their home in Worthington.
     Rick was employed by various Worthington area businesses, most recently employed by Bedford Technologies in Worthington.  He retired in August of 2012.
     Rick was a member of the First United Methodist Church in Worthington.
     In Rick’s earlier years, he enjoyed building and driving race cars, and was still a fan.  Watching his son-in-law tractor pulling was a new interest.  Rick appreciated the outdoors, canoeing in the Boundary Waters, camping, gardening, and activities at the YMCA, especially pickle ball.  Most of all he enjoyed spending time with family and friends.
     Rick is survived by his wife, Pam Jones of Worthington, MN; one daughter, Jennifer (Mike) Bousema of Worthington, MN; two sons, Jeff Jones (special friend Kathie Black) of Worthington, MN, and Tom Jones of Rushmore, MN; four granddaughters, Olivia Rose, Alyssa Noel, Erica Grace, and Angela Faith Bousema of Worthington, MN; father, Wayne Jones of Worthington, MN; brother, Randy Jones of Winona, MN; sister, Laurie (Mike) Lubbers of Webster City, IA; mother-in-law, Edna Braun of Worthington, MN; brother-in-law, Mike (Judy) Braun of Worthington, MN; special aunt, Barb Hinrich of Denton, TX, and nieces and nephews, Heidi Avera, Mason Braun, Andy Braun, Sarah Nickel, Dan Braun, Josh Lubbers, and Melanie McMillian Jones.  He was preceded in death by his mother, Jean Jones and father-in-law, Otto Braun.   
     Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, May 22, 2013, at 10:30 a.m., at the First United Methodist Church in Worthington, MN, with Rev. Gordon J. Orde officiating.  A private family burial will be held in the Sunset Rest Cemetery near Rushmore, MN.
