Jones, William L

William “Lynn” Jones (Squatty) (65) was born February 20, 1950 in Jennings, LA to William Darwin and Sarah Lee Jones. He spent most of his life building and remodeling homes. The last masterpiece he built was 2 years ago for his long time love Denise Nicholson.

Lynn and his dog, Brandi of 13 years, lived a quiet simple life amongst the Nicholson’s. He was extremely smart and called a master of many trades. His craftiness and ingenuity left many -many carpenters marveled at his brilliance.

rn

Lynn had a big competitive side to him and had a love for shooting pool. In the old days he was called “Stick” being good enough to often make a living at times. He enjoyed card games and traveling. His health hindered him from enjoying a lot of activities he loved. He was and accurate shot and excellent game hunter. Lynn went through life 100% fearless. He had great values, work ethic and the few friends he had valued his loyalty.

rn

Lynn had the pride of a peacock and the determination of a wolverine. He loved hard- worked hard- and argued even harder!! He would argue with a fence post if given the chance. He was always accountable and a man of his word. In most situations he regarded himself as “Right”. Lynn had a love of restoring old cars. He never got to complete one 100%. He regretted not showing more love to his kids and felt bad about not being a better father. After several severe health issues his pain took over all his “Happy” but no matter how bad it was you could always count on him to show up. He had no acceptance for pity and carried himself with class and good taste and head held high. “9ft tall and bullet proof”

rn

He loved his grandchildren, Seth Jones and considered Autumn Rain Nicholson his grandchild too. Lynn was generous and compassionate. There has never been another like him to say the least! He was a great hustler of making things happen and making money quick, but soon as he got it he blew it. Then on to the next quest…. His mind always working. The last several months had filled Lynn with gratitude and peace talking about going to church, the long term love and respect for his brother-in-law Denny Rasberry, how his old friend T-Ray never gave up checking on him 3-4 times a week, spoke affectionately and his deep love and gratitude for Denise Nicholson and appreciation for the time and health care from Denise and Heather Beck. He was in awe of the financial help from Jack Nicholson. His long time friend and freely expressed his deepest heartfelt love for the few people who never gave up on him.

rn

His last wishes were to go to church, the movies, and have Kevin Golden take him finishing. His liver and heart gave up on him and he surrendered his life on September 21, 2015 at 3:32. Free of pain and no more struggling. William Lynn Jones will be missed immensely and truly never forgotten
