Pop was born on June 21, 1943 in Coaling, Alabama to Harold T. Jones and Fannie Mae Steele and passed away Monday, February 5, 2024 in Bossier City, Louisiana.

He was an avid dirt track racer, his passion was dirt track cars. He was an excellent mechanic and could fix anything, especially in his younger years. He was a true Alabama fan, Go Roll Tide.! He could outdrink any man in the coffee department and loved a good piece of pie. He was a calm and gentle natured man.  You never heard him raise his voice, although he could give you a look that would kill. Above all he loved his family. To know him was to love him and he will be truly missed.

The love of his life, Dorothy Jones, always kept him in line, as much as possible because he always knew that someone would hit the button on him and call her when he acted up.
