OBITUARY

Brian Anthony Jones

September 5, 1971January 25, 2019

The World lost a beacon of light on January 25th 2019, when Brian Anthony Jones was taken by a tragic motor vehicle accident. Brian was born in Fairbanks Alaska on September 5th 1971 along with his twin brother Adam Leo Jones. Brian and Adam were born two months early to Adam and Marilyn Jones and at the time were not expected to live. Both babies showed the world what they were made of and grew up to be strong, capable men. Brian’s family moved to Monroe, Washington in 1979 and he lived in Monroe, a town that he loved, for the rest of his life. He graduated from Monroe High School in 1989. Brian started his career at the young age of twelve as a shop hand in his Dad’s company. With pride he worked his way up to General Foreman in the Iron Workers Local 86, a job that he loved. He took great pride in his profession. The comradery he felt with his fellow Iron Workers was one of the great joys of his life. He was famous for being a hard worker and always pulling more than his share of the load. At the same time, he was also known as a great teacher, both by example and thru patient instruction. He played important roles is the construction of many iconic Washington structures, including Safeco Field, Everett’s Angel of the Winds Arena, The Seattle Central Library, Seattle’s Children and Swedish Hospitals and countless other structures throughout Alaska, California and Oregon. Brian had a great zest for life and was loved by everyone he met. You could always count on him to lighten even the most tense of situations with a big smile and his charming wit. Brian loved golf, music, movies, hiking, camping, water sports, snowboarding, dancing, the sun and the outdoors, but most of all his family. All the long hours he spent at a very physically intense job were all for the good of his family, especially his two children, Logan and Brianne. When his loved ones were asked for words to describe Brian, the same adjectives came up again and again: hardworking, kind, soft hearted, honest, loyal, generous, light hearted, easy going, forgiving, loving, fun and the incredible ability to always see the good in people. Brian leaves behind his heartbroken family, children Logan and Brianne Jones, and their mother Denise Jones, Brian’s mother Marilyn Larson (Doug), father Adam Jones (April), brothers Parnelli Jones and Adam Jones , sisters Dawn Henson and Michelle Crow (Don), nephews Michael Jones and Jordan Jones and nieces Jessica Corona, Jennifer Flores and Kiana Jones. In lieu of flowers please share written stories or photos of Brian. Please join us to celebrate Brian’s life on Saturday, February 9th, starting at 11:30 AM at one of Brian’s favorite places, The Blue Boy West Golf Course, 27927 Florence Acres Rd. Monroe WA. (Please be aware that the memorial service at Cascade Community Church has been cancelled.) Please dress for an outdoor/indoor venue.

Brian it just dosent seem real. I know I'm going to wake up and you will be your fun loving self but it never happens. You were loved by so many. I remember the get togethers you, adam, raul, Mike and fogger used to have. We would laugh and joke and sometimes fight. My heart hurts...my head hurts trying to figure out why the good go so early. To your family, I can't say anything but I'm so sorry. I won't say goodbye. I'll see you later playing golf in that big sky.

I never met Brian. I knew of him and his brother Adam through their Father Adam who I have been friends with for almost 15 years. Knowing Adam as I do, I am certain this is the worst of heartbreaks for him as well as all of Brian's family.
My deepest condolences and heartfelt sadness to you and your entire family Adam.

Brian, I didn't get to spend nearly enough time with you. The times I did talk with you, exchange thoughts or just share a hey what's up moment, you were always smiling. Seriously you just seemed so full of energy, happiness and willingness to help others. I wish I would've known you better, as you were truly a stand up guy. Thanks for just blessing the brief moments I shared with you and thanks for the many great times you shared with so many of your close friends and family. I want to share my deepest condolences with your friends and family. RIP

My heart goes out to Family and friends. This is such a great loss. Hugs to my friend Adam. Know my thoughts and prayers are for your family. My greatest memory would be Camp Casey where all 6 grade schools came from around the districts. I was from Maltby, Brian, Adam, and I and a bunch other classmates were in this one building where they were running up and down the halls while I was in my room, I wondered who’s running, I look down the hall and it was Brian and Adam running in their underwear, and I thought “ these kids from Monroe were crazy”. We grew up through the years as friends. I’ll miss you bud, you always made me laugh.
