Survivors include his wife of 16 years, Elsie Scarborough Jones, his children, Kenneth Andrew Jones, Crystal Jones, and Keith Jones and his fiancé Tracy Bogle, all of Ravenna, Ohio, and Melinda Raynes and her husband Dewey of Ameagle; two stepchildren, Gary Stover Jr. and Mitchell Stover, both of Robson; three sisters, Louise Keyes of Dorothy, Cora Null of Nitro, and Barbara Farley of Hinton; 13 grandchildren, one great-grandchild, and a special niece who helped care for him, Linda Kay Jarrett, and also several additional nieces and nephews also survive.
