Upon completion of his education in Fort Collins he started working in construction and became a partner in several construction and development companies. Some of his projects included Saint Lukes Episcopal Church and First Methodist Churches in Fort Collins and Messiah Lutheran Church in Longmont. He built many single family and multi-family residential units throughout Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico and Texas. Short loved to drive and his passion was collecting classic cars and taking road trips. Through the years he owned and restored numerous cars all Fords. Short loved to travel as long as it was by automobile to visit family and friends and to visit historical sights.

He had numerous dear friends throughout the country who also feel the loss of this great soul. Short touched the lives of hundreds of people and all who knew him were enriched by his friendship.

I am thankful for the fond memories of Short growing up as a child, when my aunt and cousins would come to visit my Grandmother in Cody, WY. He was a good and kind man.

Uncle Short was always smiling and so warm and open to everyone. That's was this Jones family is. I am so fortunate to have known him and be a part of this amazing family. You will be missed.

I didn't know Short, but if he was as great a guy (which I'm sure he was), as his wife, Carolyn is a great person, this world has been blessed. God bless you Carolyn, along with your family. May the Lord bless & keep you in His wonderful care.
