On Wednesday, November 6, 2019 Troy Lynn Jones, loving husband, father, and papa passed away at age 51.
Troy was born January 18, 1968 in Murray, UT to Bob and Shirley Jones. He graduated from Monticello High School in 1986.
Right out of high school, he joined the army and married his high school sweetheart, Lisa Risenhoover, on December 23, 1986. Two years later they had their only son, Tyler Jones.
Troy was stationed in Korea, Massachusetts, and Colorado Springs where the Jones family made their home for 18 years.
Their family moved to Spring Creek, NV in 2005 where he became a miner for Bald Mountain Barrick, then SMD Smith Mine where he finished his career.
He was loved by his family and everyone who met him. Troy was a quiet soul who wasn’t very social but had many friends.
Troy enjoyed hunting, fishing, and spending time with his family. Troy had a great sense of humor and was often called ornery.
Troy’s crew at SMD loved him like a brother. He will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved him.
