My love, Frank Arthur Jones successfully passed to the other side of the veil on November 8, 2022 quietly at home. Samuel Howard Jones and Margaret Orme Jones welcomed their third child, Frank, on May 2, 1947 joining sister, Janet and brother, Howard. He grew up in the Canyon Rim area of Salt Lake City Utah graduating from Skyline High School in 1965 where his studies consisted of football and pretty girls. He married, shortly after high school, one of those pretty girls, Suzanne Barton Jones and they quickly began their family. They welcomed son Zachary and less than fifteen months later, son Justin completed the family. Frank embraced 'dadhood' supporting his sons in their endeavors. He shared his love of sailing, skiing, camping and partying with his sons and lifelong friends. Frank is a humble man of integrity, which is so important to him that he had it tattooed on his arm.
Frank and I met at confession in 2007 and were married in 2008. He welcomed my children, Nicole (Kenny), Matt (Jenny) and Ashley (Zak). He is all about the fun and enjoying life to the fullest. It's all about the party and friends. He loves his Harley-Davidson family, his St. Thomas More Family, The Rabid Toad's and, of course, his Park City Ski Patrol family. There are so many stories, some of them are tame enough to share!
Frank gave me a new and beautiful family. He hauled my sorry...on the back of his motorcycles. I always felt safe on the back and took in all the sights. He brought amazing friends into my life and I love you all. He gave me the Mirror Lake Highway, Kelly's, Grand Canyon etc. We rode through every kind of weather imaginable!
Poppy is the name he cherishes most. Zac gave us Wyatt, Jaylee and Rem. Justin and Debbie added Rex, Brock and Kennedy. Our marriage added, Serenity, Gavin, Anthony, McCabe, McKinley, Caelin, Maliyah, Paizely and Taylor. We are blessed with 'greats' Adalynn, Alivia, Samuel and Sawyer.
Frank considers the families of friends, a huge part of his life. The Vigos'
LONG MAY YOU RUN Nick, Mary, Stephanie, Kendall, Skylar and Cash. Jerri and Duane Vigos gave him a bonus family.
Frank's alter ego is St. Nicholas aka Santa Claus. St. Nicholas could bi-locate, therefore, he could be in hundreds of places at the same time. He also is associated with many miracles. The greatest miracle is that Santa continues to make his rounds every year celebrating the birthday of Christ. The spirit of Santa is real and Frank took that responsibility seriously, leaving every child with the acclamation "Always remember that Santa loves you." He was blessed to bring the miracle of Santa to the beautiful angels of the Angels Hands Foundation, his charity of choice.
He was predeceased by his wife Suzanne, parents, sister Janet, brother Howard and nephew Brad. In addition to children and grandchildren he is survived by his aunt Carol Holding, Nephew Stephen, Nieces, Anne and Kathleen. He is missed by his fur babies, Chopper Chewy, Maggie May and Romeo 'the face' Jones.
Rest well My Love until I see you again. May the road go on forever and the party never end! Always remember to keep your weight on the downhill ski and long may you run!!
