Michael “Bucko” Aaron Jones, 39, entered into the loving arms of Jesus during the evening hours of Thursday (May 20, 2021). Michael “Bucko” Jones was a husband, father, warrior and brother to his military family. He loved his family, friends, country, and the Tennessee VOLS. His natural spirit was contagious and would light up any room he entered. He was there for anyone and everyone……if you needed a laugh, advice, a hug, or encouragement. “Bucko” served in the United States Air Force as Staff Sergeant for Ten years. He served overseas for two years and was deployed multiple times, Iraq and Afghanistan. “Bucko” left his mark of positivity, success, and passion on those with whom he crossed paths. Anyone who knew “Bucko” knows his love for his country was dwarfed by his love for his family. “Bucko” was preceded in death by his adoptive father, Ron Lee Jones; brother, Joshua Tanner Jones; uncle, Richard Allen Jones; paternal grandmother, Louise Jones Wright; and maternal grandmother, Dorcas Ann Blaylock. Left to cherish his memory are his wife of 12 years, Brooke Jones; two daughters, Aubrey and Elizabeth Jones; mother, Deanna Southerland & step-father, Steve Southerland; birth father, Dean Zipperer & wife Beth; step-sister, Tyler Brown; three brothers, Willie Aron Jones & wife Sandra, Jason Jones & wife Erin, and Chase Jones & wife Acacia; three step brothers, Daniel Southerland, Christopher & Cassie Southerland, and Cody Southerland; grandmother, Omara Southerland; sister-in-law, Brittany Jennings & husband Levi; brother-in-law, Josh Marsh & wife Chelsea; father-in-law, Ralph Marsh; paternal grandmother, Sybil Zipperer; maternal grandfather, Donald Blaylock; aunts, Karen Stallard & husband Mark, Nyoka Pressley, and Pam Newberry; uncles, Kerry Jones & wife Sharon, James Blaylock, and Donnie Blaylock; several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and a host of many friends.
