Luther G. Jones, Jr. passed away peacefully in his sleep after a lengthy illness on June 28, 2014. Born in Temple, TX on June 10, 1930 to Catherine Panton and Luther G. Jones, Sr., he graduated from Texas A&M high school in College Station and then travelled around Texas working for "Ma Bell." After serving in Army during the Korean War, he attended the University of Texas at Austin on the G.I. Bill, earning a Bachelor degree in Geology. Following a stint of working in the oil fields, he settled in San Antonio, where he worked at Kelly Air Force Base. Luther retired in 1990 and spent his sunset years reading travel books, building various contraptions, and happily puttering around the house. He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Karen Lee, sons Luther (Kristy) and Anthony (Genevieve) and daughter Madeline (Lorne); sister Louise (Bob) King; brother Bill (Carol) Jones; 3 grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews. A celebratory remembrance will be held on July 7 at The Veranda.
