Bobby Loyd Jones, 81, peacefully passed on, Tuesday, September 20, 2016 at Baylor Scott & White Waxahachie following a long valiant fight with illness.

He leaves his wife of 57 years, Marva Sue Bardwell Jones; his son, Marvin Jones and his wife Andralyn, his son Michael Jones and Amber Conatser, his daughter, Rebecca Pugh and her husband Randy; four grandsons that were his pride and joy; Dustin Jones and his wife Jessie, Jordan Jones, Landon and Logan Pugh, a host of nieces and nephews and many close friends. He is preceded in death by his mother and father and his two sisters Pat Daniels and Martha Dobbs.

Born in Dallas the son of Maybelle “Cookie” DeMay and Cecil Loyd Jones, he was raised in Oak Cliff and joined the Naval Reserves when he was 17 years old. He later went to work for Home Furniture Company in Dallas where he met a girl in the accounting department who would later become his wife.

After marrying in 1958, Bobby joined the Army in 1959 and was stationed at Fort Hood. Upon completion of his years of service, Bobby and Sue, along with two boys, moved back to the Palmer area where they welcomed their daughter, and Bobby began working for Ennis Business Forms. Bobby was a proud member of the Ferris Masonic Lodge, the Hella Shriners, the Palmer Lions Club and served on the Palmer ISD school board. In 1982, Bobby started his business Bee Jay Business Forms. He not only took pride in his business, but relished the friends he made along the way.

Bob was an avid golfer, but his passion was watching his grandsons play baseball. He could always be found at the ballfield cheering them on and making new friends at every game.

He will be remembered for his warm hugs, friendly smile and infectious laugh.
