Obituary of Mark Jones

At 63 years old, Mark Jones has passed. He was loved by many friends and family. He was born in Nevada City to loving parents, Stanley and Florence Jones. Mark has a brother and a sister. Mark had a wonderful love-filled childhood in Nevada City until the family moved to Carmichael for his father’s work. Mark finished his education in Sacramento and eventually joined the Army. Mark was married twice to two lovely women, but alas the marriages did not last. What did last was a daughter named Mirna who became Mirna Brizendine, married to Matt and soon born were grandson Taylor and granddaughters Micaela and Delaney. This family became the light of Mark’s life. Mark’s life was now in Portland, Oregon, where he excelled in the computer industry. Mark was larger than life with a personality you had to grab onto with both hands. In his earlier years, he traveled a lot with many jobs just to experience the life. In later years, it was all about his beloved family. He was preceded in death by his father, Stanley W. Jones, and many other beloved family members. Mark is survived by his mother Florence Jones of Carmichael, brother Walter Jones of Nevada City, sister April Roberge from Antelope, and many other aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. Family in the Nevada City area include Washburn/Seeger, Weiss, Wasley, Zoelin, White, Lincoln and Grabel.

Services were held in Beaverton, Oregon. A celebration of life is planned in Nevada City for family and friends. Donations on Mark’s behalf can be made to
