Glen Robert Jones Obituary
Glen Robert Jones was born in Bakersfield, California to G.B. Jones and Doris (Cowan) Jones on January 20, 1948. He passed away in Tehachapi, California on February 24, 2015, at the age of 67.
Glen attended South High School and Bakersfield College and loved sports, playing baseball and football. Glen worked in the oil fields as a Safety Inspector and retired in 2014. He was married to Doris Jostmeyer in 1981, and she preceded him in death in 2002.
Glen loved to dance and sing karaoke and had a great sense of humor and big heart. His favorite pastimes were watching football and NASCAR and he loved going to the casinos. He will be dearly missed by his family and friends. The "kids," China, Cookie and Blue will also miss their "Big Dog."

Glen also had a beloved cousin, Roger (Susan) Cowan of Bakersfield.
The family wishes to thank the wonderful staff and volunteers from Hoffmann Hospice for their support, care and kindness shown during Glen's illness. Per Glen's wishes, there will be no services.
