Mark Steven Jones, age 65 of Midlothian, Texas, and a native of Seguin, passed away on August 30, 2020, after a fierce battle with bile duct cancer. Mark was born in San Antonio, Texas, and adopted into the loving arms of his parents Helna Alma (Neumann) and Gordon Parker Jones. Mark attended Seguin High School, where he played trombone in the marching band when he wasn’t out causing trouble—good naturedly, of course.
Mark is preceded in death by his mother and father and many aunts and uncles.
Survivors include his loving wife of 34 years, Melanie Jones; children Margaret Elizabeth Bowman, 31, from the Nashville area; and Gordon Forrest Jones, 30 from the Denver area; his sister Shari Jones Robertson and her husband Fred, from Austin; sisters-in law Jamie Schick Whitehouse (husband Dave); Julie Schick; Jackie Schick Center (husband Lance) and all of their families including many nieces and nephews. He also has many beloved cousins, extended family, and dear friends, all of whom he adored.
Mark was an incredible husband, father, brother, and friend, and he always had a quick smile and loved to make others laugh. He cared so deeply about his family, and they all adore him — he will be missed dearly and never forgotten.
