Navarro was born December 1, 1956 to Russell and Geraldine Jones in McPherson, KS. He was the youngest of 5 children and grew up in a world where you always helped others and if you wanted something you built it yourself. As a teen he moved out of the home that he helped build with his parents and siblings in Cañon City, CO and joined the U.S. Navy. Prior to joining the military, he met the love of his life Sheila Angel Jones. They quickly fell in love, and although he was to be deployed, they promised to stay in touch. Sheila waited years, communicating only through love letters, for his return and on August 22, 1981 the couple were married at Silver Hills Ski Lodge in Colorado. They continued to live a life full of love and devotion together. Along the way they bore two children. Their first child was a son, Jason Jones. Second, a baby girl, Stacey Marie Jones, born September 10th, 1987 in La Mesa, CA. Navarro retired from the U.S. Navy after proudly serving 20 years and moved his family to San Diego, CA. It was here he would earn one of his most cherished titles: Grandpa (or Papaw) to his four grandchildren Shelette, Eli, Camden and Reid. His Grandchildren were his world, and anyone who met him knew how much love he had for them within the first minute of the conversation.

To know Navarro was to know one of the kindest, gentle and genuine men ever. San Diego is where he lived every day in paradise. With warm sunshine, perfect weather, and his Babydoll, Sheila, by his side he lived a life full of love, devotion, and happiness.

He is survived by his wife Sheila Jones, his two children Jason Jones and Stacey Luniewski, his four grandchildren Shelette Jones, Eli Jones, Camden Luniewski, and Reid Luniewski, his Sister Scheherazade Jones, and his two brothers Russ Jones and Terry Jones.

He is preceded in death by his parents Russell and Geraldine Jones, and his older brother Rocky Jones. We welcome anyone and everyone to join us as we say good bye to our beloved husband and father and join us in celebrating the joys of his life.

Doc and I were second cousins. I never had the pleasure of meeting him face to face but we had many conversations over the years about our Jones genealogy..we filled in the blanks for each other...him, probably more so for me.. I was so hoping to meet him someday..I guess I will, just not on this side. Heaven for sure gained an angel..Rest in Peace, dear cousin..you won’t be forgotten!

Doc and I never met. His great-grandfather's brother was Samuel Jones who married my 2nd great-aunt Aldora "Dora" Higgs. We met through genealogy and I have enjoyed getting to know the Jones family better through Doc and his brother Terry. I will miss his Facebook posts A LOT. My condolences to all of his family!

Doc was the kindest man. Always helping his fellow neighbors. Thank you to the Jones family for sharing this much loved man with all of us. Until we meet again, know you are truly missed.

There are way too many wonderful memories that we have shared with you and your’s, it is impossible to list them all here. Sitting in the street. “Changing our backyards.” 7-11 coffee for you and bottles of grapes for us. Your amazing wood projects. The 5:00 somewhere clock. My Bejeweled cake, and the gem turd clay figure 2 days later. Monkey meat & yard bird in the street. The goldfish in the 30pk of Natty Ice that lived forever. Home projects that we’ve help each other with. Golf cart fun! Weddings and grandchildren. Miracles from God. We love you. ❤️❤️❤️

I remember many things. Such as digging a well at Clown Town under grandpa Riley's supervision. It was 20-25 ft. deep and we used a post hole auger. I remember laying a miniature railroad track approx one quarter of a mile long and one spot in the track that the train jumped off track every time. Also remember the time( as Dad said )we had close to 3 feet of snow on the ground and he drove us 5 miles to our bus stop where we set for close to ten minutes(give or take) to find out Schoool was closed because the busses could not move. There are many more memories I could share but too many for Facebook or to text. Navarro was not only my brother he was and always will be my best friend. He is being missed already but me and I am sure all his siblings (that are still alive).
