He was born June 18, 1962 in Phoenix, Arizona, the son of Everett and Sarah (Hodges) Jones. He married Connie and they shared 28 years together.
Donny was a hard worker and loved his family dearly. He was an avid sports man, whether it was watching, coaching, or playing, he loved it all. His favorite teams to watch were the Arizona Cardinals, Phoenix Suns, Arizona Diamondbacks, and of course any team his son played on. He supported each and every one of his children in all things. He had a tender heart and his three daughters had him wrapped around their finger. Donny was a friend to all, he didn’t know a stranger. Donny was a faithful Christian who loved God and spent much of his time sharing the love of Jesus with children while teaching Children’s Church. He loved his family with all his heart, but his grandchildren were the light of his world. We often say, Donny’s favorite people call him Papa.
