Stacey Richard Jones
Stacey Richard Jones, 63, beloved father, grandfather, and brother passed away on October 10, 2021 in Ogden, Utah. Stacey was born June 30, 1958 in Ogden, Utah to Jay Lloyd Jones and Barbara Louise Jones.
Stacey Grew up in Huntsville, Utah and later moved to Ogden, Utah. He graduated from Weber High School. He was a man of many talents and could fix several different things, which led him to working maintenance at Saint Benedict's Hospital and retired from South Davis Community Hospital.
Growing up in Huntsville gave him the opportunity to know the mountains like the back of his hand. He met his best friend Fred in fourth grade and they have been raising hell ever since. After school Stacey and Fred would hop on their horses and explore. As kids they loved riding through campsites, shooting their pistols in the air while pissing off “Ogden people”. Given the opportunity, they would do it all over again.
Here are a few of the many things Stacey genuinely loved. Stacey loved spending time with his family and hunting was the highlight of his life. He was especially happy hunting with his friends, sons and grandsons. His happiest memories were the times up at Monte Cristo, sipping on a cocktail, sharing stories around the fire, cracking inappropriate jokes while everyone laughed their butts off. He loved going to lunch with his brother Chris and spending an afternoon at the auction to see what treasure he could collect next. He was a man of many guns. He loved collecting guns and raised his children and grandsons to love, appreciate and respect guns and gun safety. He loved the Denver Broncos and raised his kids to believe that Rulon Jones (No. 75) was in-fact our cousin. The neighbors always knew it was game day because they could hear him cheering from a mile away. Go Broncos! His side kick was his dog Abby, she loved being able to ride shotgun while they went to visit friends. He was a hippie at heart, had a good time wherever he went and definitely made a lasting impression on people he met.
Stacey's greatest traits were support, unbridled acts of kindness, generosity and making people laugh (and we mean LAUGH). He was one of the funniest guys you would ever meet. He was witty with his words and you never knew what would come out of his mouth next. He loved surprising people with special gifts and the neighbors loved when he would help shovel the walk ways on snowy days. He helped assist with feeding the homeless and would donate to the local shelter(s) even when he didn’t have a lot. He was a voice for those who didn’t have a voice and made his own lasting effect within the community.
Stacey's children and grandchildren brought him much joy and happiness and he was extremely proud of them and their accomplishments.
Stacey is survived by his 3 daughters Amy Hanges, Natalie Garcia, Taryn Rabe, his 2 sons Jared Jones, Jonathan Jones, and his 8 incredible grandchildren Skyler Hanges, Austin Garcia, Angelina Garcia, Marcos Garcia, Malan Rabe, Kendall Rabe, Quinn Rabe, and Bexley Jones.
A celebration of life will be held Wednesday October 20th 2021 from 5-9pm at Fraternal Order of Eagles located at 975 Wall Ave, Ogden Utah 84404.
To Staceys children, so sorry for your loss, what a void in my life this will be. Your Dad was a kind soul, funny and loyal. He was a part of our family and we loved him so. Keep your Dads memories close to you and know he will be with you, always. Rest now Stacey.

To all of Stacey's friends and family, I am so sorry for your loss. He was a good man, I met Stacey while I was still in elementary school in Huntsville, he used to hang out with my brother Jay. Stacey was always fun to be around and party with later in life. He truly did have a great sense of humor. He will be greatly missed.

I'm sorry for your loss. I lived next door in Huntsville and was very good friends with the Jones. Susie was my best friend and as teenagers we were frequently annoyed by little brother Stacey. Later in life I did learn to appreciate his teasing ways. He always gave the best hugs!
