Michael Howard Jones, passed away on December 24, 2023, in Kingston Springs, TN. Born on April 15, 1946, in England, Mike lived a remarkable life filled with dedication, accomplishment, and a deep love for his family and friends.

Mike's career spanned over four decades at AT&T, where he retired after an impressive 45 years of service. He was an integral part of the company's growth. In fact, Mike's knowledge and expertise were so significant that he became one of the first two individuals to provide fiber-optics to Tennessee.

However, Mike was not defined solely by his professional accomplishments. He had a down-to-earth personality that endeared him to everyone who crossed his path. Known for his caring nature and sensitivity towards others, Mike was always there to lend a helping hand or offer comforting words during challenging times. His vast knowledge in various subjects made him an incredible source of information and an invaluable friend.

Outside of work, Mike's true joy lay in the great outdoors. He treasured every opportunity to immerse himself in nature's beauty. Whether it was hiking through scenic trails or simply spending time in his backyard, Mike found solace and happiness amidst the wonders of the natural world.

Additionally, he had a passion for woodworking and working with his hands. A skilled craftsman, Mike could transform raw materials into stunning creations through his meticulous craftsmanship. His talent extended beyond woodworking; he also loved tinkering with cars and enjoyed fixing things around the house. Mike's resourcefulness knew no bounds.

Mike loved animals, particularly his beloved dogs who were constant companions throughout his life. Their unwavering loyalty brought him joy.

Traveling held a special place in Mike's heart. He often embarked on adventures with his beloved wife Sandra Lee Jones. Together, they made memories to cherish forever.

Mike's education began with his graduation from White Haven High School in Memphis, TN. It was there that he laid the foundation for a lifetime of learning and personal growth. His thirst for knowledge never wavered, and he continued to expand his horizons throughout his life.

Not only was Mike dedicated to his work and hobbies, but he also proudly served in the National Guard, demonstrating his commitment to his country and fellow citizens.
