Michael Ellis Jones

September 5, 2020

Mike was born in Pensacola, FL on November 15, 1951. He grew up on Bayou Texar, which fostered his love of the water. He loved anything to do with the water including boating, skiing, fishing, and of course the seafood- especially fish, oysters, scallops, and crabs.

Mike joined the U.S. Army in 1972 and served in The Vietnam War. He continued his career as a radiological technician and lithotripsy specialist in Pensacola and the surrounding areas until his retirement.

Mike was a loving husband and father. He loved to spend time with friends and family; and he could cook a mean steak. He was a happy-go-lucky guy, and always had a smile on his face. Everyone that had the pleasure of knowing him loved him. He had many friendships that spanned decades.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Ellis Alexander Jones, Mary Belle Tucei Jones, Dewey Hobson Lowery and Elsie Clarke Ann Hudson Lowery; parents, Vincent Patrick Jones, Sr. and Virginia Dare Lowery Jones.

He is survived by his loving wife, Rhonda Lynn Pittman Jones; sons, Christopher Ellis Jones (Shannon), Charles Michael Jones, Michael David Jones and Nicholas Allen Jones; brother, Vincent Patrick Jones, Jr. (Becky); grandchildren, Isabelle Jones, Draden Jones and Charlotte Jones; niece, Jennifer Leigh Jones Burns (Dilan); great-nephew, Maximilian Patrick Burns; a special four-legged friend, Chipper. He is also survived by many loved aunts and cousins.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, September 9, 2020, at Faith Chapel Funeral Home North with Jeff Smith officiating.

Burial will follow in Barrancas National Cemetery.

Family will receive friends at 10 a.m. prior to services.
