Brandon “B” Jones, an incredible husband, darling father, loyal friend and awesome bishop, returned home on Wednesday, Oct. 12, due to injuries sustained from a bicycle accident.
He was born Feb. 1, 1974, to Ralph and Cheryl Jones of Henefer, Utah. He grew up hauling hay, welding metal and playing outside in the county with siblings, cousins, and friends.
In 1992, he married his high school love, Mitzi Woolstenhulme. They enjoyed a beautiful friendship and a charming love life for nearly 24 years. He loved being a “fommy” to their three amazing daughters.
Brandon was a supreme athlete with a ridiculous vertical jump and a long wing span. He loved football, basketball, baseball and even ran track. He won multiple state championships, was the 1992 Male High School Athlete of the year and played quarterback for the University of Utah from 1993–1996. He loved lifting weights and keeping his body in shape. As his joints aged, he picked up cycling, a true love and passion in his life.
He spent his career in sales and business operations. He was a genuine people person and not only gained clients but also lifelong friends. He dealt honestly, spoke kindly and smiled infectiously.
Brandon loved the gospel of Jesus Christ and had a solid testimony in the Plan of Salvation. He was grateful for the Atonement and used it in his life to become a better person.
He is survived by his wife, Mitzi; daughters: Sydney (Logan) Carter, Madalyn and Elizabeth; parents, Ralph and Cheryl; siblings: Jennifer (Beau) Morrill, Mindee (Joe) Thackeray and Cory (Amy) Jones; in-laws: Don, Kathy, Wendy, Kerry, Katie, Wes, Gretchen and Gwen; and grandparents, DeOrr and Ardath Peterson.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Howard and LuGene Jones.
Thank you for your kind love and support.
