Obituary for Robert Bruce Jones

Robert Bruce Jones, age 80, passed away peacefully on July 31, 2019, at Mercy Hospital in Oklahoma City. He was born March 28, 1939 in Carter, Beckham County, Oklahoma to Charles Alexander and Lennie Marie Jones. He had five siblings: John, James, Allie, Tom, and Deanna. Upon graduating high school in San Diego, California in 1957, he began working for Corvair Aircraft Plastics Department. After working there for a few years, he moved to Antelope Valley, California where he worked as a fiberglass technician. It was here that Bruce married and fathered three children, Catherine, Robert, and Stephanie. Bruce will leave behind eight grandchildren and six great grandchildren. Bruce was extremely talented and always enjoyed creating beautiful drawings, as well as stone and wood carvings by hand. He eventually started his own business where he designed and built plastic and fiberglass products at the Mojave Airport in California. Most notably, he helped build the C-17 and other various airplanes. He also specialized in creating parts for rides at amusement parks, such as Knott’s Berry Farm and Six Flags. In addition to being a creative handy man, Bruce dedicated himself to his work, family, and friends. After job shopping all around the country in the fiberglass and plastics industry, he eventually settled back in Yukon, Oklahoma for the remainder of his years. In his spare time, Bruce enjoyed drinking a cold beer and watching NASCAR with his close friends in Oklahoma. Anyone who knew Bruce, knew that he lived life on his own terms and respected him for that. He will be greatly missed by all whose lives he has touched.
