Allan Jones ’79

Allan E. Jones, 63, died on May 27, 2019, in Florissant, Colorado.

Allan was born on July, 24, 1955, in Waterville, Maine, a son of Edmund Jones and Roberta Gleichauf. He graduated from Maine Maritime Academy with the class of 1979 and was employed as a merchant marine.

Allan was a respected father to his children and a great big brother to Jeffrey and Doug. Allan’s greatest pleasures in life were to play with his ‘toys’, whether riding his motorcycle during the winter or breaking trail on his ATV. Additionally, he could not pass up a great game of poker, going for long walks, or enjoying a large pizza with extra sauce and cheese. Allan will be missed but his family is grateful he is now with Jesus, sweeping the golden roads of Heaven.

He is survived by his father, Edmond Jones of Fairfield; his children: Sean Jones and wife Kiri Jones of Pittsfield, Christian Jones of Colorado, Springs, CO, and Maghan Jones and husband Steven Dunphy of Buxton; his grandchildren: Alec Jones, Mada Dunphy and Daisy Dunphy; his brothers: Jeffrey Jones and wife Elizabeth of Florissant, CO, and Doug Jones of Florida; and several nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his mother, Roberta Gleichauf.

A gathering of family and friends will be held in the month of August. A notification will be announced later with a date and time.
