Brandon Scott Jones, 39, son of Max and
Nancy Jones, returned to the loving arms of his Heavenly
Father on December 24, 2015 due to a sudden illness.
Brandon was born December 30, 1975, the fifth of ten children.
A severe case of spinal meningitis as an infant left Brandon
with significant brain damage. While non-verbal, Brandon
learned to communicate his needs and affection in ways that
endeared him to those blessed to care for him. He loved
to have a hand to hold and a cheek to kiss. He enjoyed outings,
especially a trip to Wendy’s for a Frosty. Music,
foot massages, and red straws would bring a smile to Brandon’s
face. Brandon had a playful personality, yet could be very
persistent and strong willed, a trait which served him well
as he dealt with many difficult challenges. One of our favorite
memories will always be seeing his excitement to participate
in a horse riding therapy program.
Our family has been incredibly blessed to love and care
for Brandon for nearly 40 years. We would like to thank
the many teachers, staff, volunteers, and dear family friends
who have shown Brandon such kindness, patience, and love.
Brandon is survived by his parents Max and Nancy of Alpine,
siblings Amy (Anthony), Jason (Mimi), Ryan (Katherine),
Elizabeth (Mark), Mary (Jon), Alyson, Jordan (Jandee), David
(Ellie) and Christian (Bre), and many loving aunts, uncles,
cousins, nieces, and nephews.
