Christopher Lawrence Jones

23 juillet , 19755 février , 2020

With deepest sorrow, we announce that Christopher Lawrence Jones, age 44, our most beloved son, brother, uncle, grandson, nephew, and friend died unexpectedly on Wednesday, February 5, 2020. Those who knew Chris, even just a little, lost a shinning light in their lives.

Chris was born July 23, 1975 in Washington, DC. He grew up in Maryland and then spent many years in Florida before returning to Maryland. Chris attended South River High School and later earned an Associate Degree for Computer Aided Drawing from the Florida Institute of Technology. Chris enjoyed many professions as an animal rescuer, a motorcycle mechanic, a plumber, as well as a medical and retail sales representative.

Chris had a special way with animals and animals loved him for it. Whenever Chris walked in a room, animals, cats in particular, would flock to him and he always knew what they wanted. Chris enjoyed attending music festivals, concerts, playing video games, reading books, and listening to a variety of music. One of Chris’s favorite past times was to engage in philosophical discussions about life, religion and politics.

Chris will be missed everyday by his father and stepmother, Lawrence and Audrey Jones; mother, Patricia Bosse; sister, Jennifer Jones; step-brothers, Paul and Kevin Cox; nephew, Ryan Jones and his wife Christi; and loving Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents, Cousins and an extended network of friends and family.

Chris is loved here on Earth as well as in Heaven. Chris is now with his Meme, Nettie Ballard; Nana, Patricia Harding; Stepfather, David Bosse; Uncle, John Marshall; Uncle, Roy Lee and David Hillegas. Chris cared about people in the purest way. He loved them for who they were without expecting anything in return. What you saw was what you got with Chris and what you saw, if you were lucky enough to know him, was a truly charismatic, loyal, generous, easy-going, and fun-loving human being.

A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, February 22, 2020 from 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm at the Bowie Elks Lodge, 1506 Defense Hwy, Gambrills, MD 21054.

In lieu of flowers, and to honor Chris’s memory, contributions can be made to the Rude Ranch Animal Rescue Center, a no-kill organization dedicated to saving four paws at a time. Donations can be made online at www.ruderanch.org or mailed to 3200 Ivy Way, Harwood, MD 20776.

When we met we where young men barely wet behind the ears... We lived together,argued together, and did the things that 2 young men do beginning our lives as young adults do.. . We almost never agreed on any subject but one thing we had in common we loved music animals and as crazy as it sounds since we never agreed on anything still we where friends.... I hadnt seen Chris in like 5yrs it was his birthday last time we saw each other but knowing he was alive and still doing his thing I new he was ok.... This isnt ok I cant go back and change life events to spend more time or argue over some philosophical debate that neither of us would ever agree on and that's not ok... He was a friend he always call me out on my bulls#$ and most of the time he was right but I had respected him for that.. He would always pull me in after a fight or and argument mainly over stupid stuff give me the man hug and say I still love ya brotha.... A piece of my young adult life was taken away when I got that phone call and now they are only replaced with memories........ I can only say thanks for always keeping it real and u will be missed man thanks for always pulling me to the side talking to me man to man u always gave me that respect.... U maybe gone but u will never be forgotten.... Dungeon Crew..........

I just wanted to share what an awesome brother chris was to me and my little brother kevin, he always answered when we would call or pick us up if we were feeling down. We had a buncha great times together just wish it wasnt his time to leave this earth. You will truly be missed and we will meet again someday! Rest easy bro! We love and miss you dearly.

One memory was when Chris, Tracy , Michael and I went rafting at Harper’s Ferry. Chris tied a cooler full of food and drinks to his raft and named it Wilson! We had the best time laughing and yelling for Wilson!

Chris, although we hadn't seen each other in years, we had talked quite regularly. We talked about getting together to do some catching up over volunteering with the animals somewhere. We would talk about life's events not only to us personally, but in general life, and of course we talked music. We have a ton of memories from our teenage years in Riva. I'll miss our talks so much. You are missed, my friend. Much love from Preston and I. Fly high
