Stephen George Jones, 65, of Duncan, OK passed away Sunday, April 29, 2018.
The son of Jack and Marjorie Jones, Steve was born Feb. 28, 1953 in Oklahoma City, OK. He attended Hefner Middle School, where he met his lifetime love, Cynthia L. Browne. Steve and Cindy attended Putnam City High School and were married May 6, 1971. They had two children, Jackie and Joel.
Steve went to work for Mobil Oil Company in 1976 in Pampa, TX and transferred to Duncan in 1979. He left Mobil in 1995 and continued in the oil field as a contract lease operator until his death. Steve took great pride in his work, giving it his all and working diligently 7 days a week. When Steve wasn't working, he loved fishing, motorcycle riding, spoiling his rescue dogs, Ebbie and Heidi, and spending time with his family. In recent years, he developed a talent for writing poems and loved sharing them with everyone.
Steve's family was his greatest pride and joy. His passion and love for his family and friends had no boundaries. The one thing he enjoyed the most was being "Pappy" to his grandchildren. He truly "never met a stranger" and befriended everyone he met. He lived large and loved BIG!
For over 3 decades, Steve was a dedicated and active member of Alcoholics Anonymous. Steve was well-known for his good-heartedness and willingness to help others. His faith in God guided his life.
Steve is survived by his loving wife, Cindy; his two children and their spouses, Brian and Jackie Beller and Joel and Stephanie Jones; six grandchildren, Heather, Hannah, Hunter, Hudson, Grace and Andrew; and one great-granddaughter, Amelia.
He was preceded in death by his parents; as well as one brother, Scott Jones.
