Larry Oliver Jones went home to be with the Lord on April 17, 2021. Larry and his twin brother Harry were born July 11, 1942, in Havre De Grace, MD, to Harry and Mary Jones. Larry grew up fishing and catching crabs in Chesapeake Bay. Named Athlete of the Year, Larry graduated high school in 1960. Enlisting in the Air Force, he was assigned to Ent AFB in Colorado Springs. Larry met Marie Massey in 1962, and they were married in the Philippines Dec. 10, 1963. They later returned to Colorado Springs and raised two daughters and two sons. Larry worked for Ampex for 25 years and was an elder at Mesa Hills Bible Church. He was proud to attend his kids' and grandkids' sports and music events and teach them all to fish. He leaves behind his wife Marie; children Jana (Mark) Smit, Kevin (Leura) Jones, Kristi (Kjell) Lindgren, and Josh (Michelle) Jones; 13 much-loved grandchildren; his sister Patricia Ballinger and brother Harry (Gloria) Jones. Larry trusted in Christ through Overseas Christian Servicemen's Center while in the Philippines and was baptized in the South China Sea. He served the Lord and his family faithfully, and we rejoice that he is in heaven. A celebration of life will be held at 4 p.m. on June 16 at Cragmor Christian Reformed Church in Colorado Springs.
