Kenneth M. Jones

August 1, 1931 — November 15, 2017

Kenneth M. Jones, 86, of Horseshoe Bay passed away on Nov. 15, 2017. He was born on Aug. 1, 1931 in Baytown, Texas, the son of Roy Francis and Ella (Gilstrap) Jones.

Ken passed away exactly 22 years after he retired. His years of retirement brought much happiness as he was able to enjoy his many hobbies and spend time with his many friends. Ken received his BA from Texas A&M University, his MRE and MTH from Harding College, and did graduate work at the University of Chicago. Flight training in the US Army gave him the skills he used in his future job as a commercial airline pilot. His eight years as a crop-duster gave him the hours he needed to be employed by Eastern Airlines, Trump Shuttle and U.S. Airways.

During this time, he met Dianne. They were married in Annapolis, Maryland in 1976 and lived there until they retired to Horseshoe Bay in 1995.

Ken is survived by his wife Dianne and his two sons Andrew and Stephen and wife Kathy.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his sons David and Paul, and his brother Donald.

Interment will be at the Horseshoe Bay Mausoleum with a private gathering.

A celebration of Ken’s life is being planned for a later date.

Arrangements by Putnam Funeral Home and Crematory, 145 Texas Avenue, Kingsland.
