Obituary for Gordon Lynn Jones

Gordon Lynn Jones passed away peacefully on Wednesday, July 25, 2018 in the comfort of his home. Born September 16, 1939 in Murray, Utah to Alfred Lynn and Opal Swallow Jones. He married his sweetheart, Sharron Moesser, August 10, 1969; later solemnized in the Jordan River Temple on August 10,1982.

Gordon was proud to have served as active duty in the United States Navy working on submarines throughout the Pacific. He began his duty in 1957 and was honorably discharged in 1962. Afterward, he spent a lifetime career as an electrician contributing to various projects throughout the states of Utah, Wyoming, and Colorado. Involved as a member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, he was an avid supporter of the union. Having grown up working on his uncle’s farms, it was rare to ever see Gordon without his cowboy boots on. He was a member of the LDS church, and he had a spirit of service that was always willing to give help to anyone in need. Gordon was a strong, calming presence in the lives of the many people who loved him. His wit, humor, and loving warm hugs will be sincerely missed.

He is survived by brothers, Mark (Karen) Jones and Fred Jones; a sister, Janice (Larry) Pehrson; his children: Scott (Christy) Russell, Ross Russell, Barbara (Paul) Kalinyak, Deena Navarrete, Deborah Denise Jones, Annita Reynolds, and Tiffinee Steed; 18 grandchildren; and 38 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents and loving wife, Sharron Jones.

An evening viewing will be held on Sunday, July 29, 2018, from 5:00-7:00 p.m. at Jenkins-Soffe Mortuary, 4760 South State Street, Murray, Utah. Funeral services will be held on Monday, July 30, 2018, at 12:00 noon at Jenkins-Soffe Mortuary, with a viewing prior from 11:00-11:45 a.m. Interment: Murray City Cemetery.
