Obituary

Garry was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma on February 8, 1954 to Robert and Lela Jones and was the youngest of 7. When Garry was but a baby his family moved to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma along with one of his sisters and 3 brothers. Two of his siblings had already married and begun their families in Tulsa. Being one of 7 children, Garry learned at an early age the importance of family. There were a lot of hand-me-downs, many shared toys and games, but most of all a lot of love.

Garry was very athletic in his youth and his primary sport was baseball. Garry played baseball up until his senior year in high school and was being scouted by a Major League team from Texas. Unfortunately, after a bad ankle break during a game, he was unable to play at his peak performance level and his career was ended.

Garry graduated from Southeast High School in 1973 and immediately entered the work force. Garry worked hard to provide for his family. He was employed with Orkin, then Seaboard Wellhead. He later worked at Standard Builders and Nationwide Builders along with his brothers for many years. He and his brothers also had a home improvement business that was very successful. In the 80’s he and his wife Sue owned D&D Pest Control and made many friends and great memories together while serving their clients. Sue went to work for Oklahoma City Public schools in the 80’s and in the late 90’s Garry followed. He joined the Oklahoma City Public Schools maintenance department, which was a great fit for him because of his extensive knowledge in repairs, construction and pest control. He worked for OKC Public Schools for nearly 20 years and retired in 2016.

In the late 70’s Garry met Sue Mullins. They turned out to be a perfect match and soon after were engaged. When they were dating they enjoyed going dancing together. Their favorite tunes to dance to were disco or country.

On February 1, 1980 Garry and Sue tied the knot in Oklahoma City and made a lifetime of memories together.

Garry was an avid sports fan and was crazy about OU Football. He was a Sooner fan through and through. He also had a love for classic cars. He enjoyed going to car shows and checking out the new projects his family members were restoring at their garage.

Garry had a few hobbies but above all his family was his real joy. He enjoyed family meals, special events and cookouts, as well as traveling together. They made great memories during their trips to Disneyworld, Branson, and Six Flags. Garry and his wife’s most memorable trip together as a couple was for their 16th wedding anniversary when they went to Hawaii. Those fond memories are more important now than ever.

Garry was preceded in death by his:
Parents, Robert Vernon Jones and Lela Aurora (Porter) Jones;
Sister, Kathy Chaney;
Brother, Vernon Jones;
Grandmother, Florence Barrtlett;
Aunt, Reba Wood;
Mother-in-Law, Arletha Mullins;
Niece, Natalie Jo Jones;
Nephew, Zack McWilliams.

He leaves cherished memories with his:
Wife, Sue Jones;
Daughter, Christi Jones;
Son, Johnnie Bellah and wife Katie;
Granddaughters, Ci'erra Jones, Olivia Bellah, Emma Bellah, and Sara McAdams;
Great Grandson, Rayden Kade Jones;
Sister, Reba Palmer and Ronnie;
Brother, Robert Lee Jones;
Brother, Johnny Jones and Kathy;
Brother, Danny Jones and Donna;
And many nieces and nephews who loved him dearly.

Garry was a family man, a great husband, dad, papa, brother and a true friend. He knew how to make someone smile and was always there to lend a hand. Although he is no longer with us, Garry’s legacy will live on through the lives he touched.

Whether you knew him as Garry, Dad, or Papa, his presence will be deeply missed and never forgotten.
