Dennis Jones, age 63, of Three Rivers, passed away suddenly in the early hours of Monday, February 24, 2020 at his home. He was born on June 26th, 1956 in Belding, MI to Jim and Jeanette Hulliberger.
Dennis was an area business owner for over 30 years where he employed countless individuals and was known as an honest, kind, and caring leader of people. The well being of his employees and their families was always his most important consideration. Dennis enjoyed traveling “out west” or “up north” with his family for adventures in the outdoors including hiking, camping, and snowmobiling. He was an extremely caring and giving person who was constantly looking for ways to help those around him. Whether it was rebuilding a car, remodeling a house, or discussing politics or science, Dennis was a wealth of competence and knowledge and never lost the desire or curiosity to always keep learning and sharing that knowledge with others. It was rare for an individual to meet Dennis and walk away not having learned something from him, taught him something, or most likely both. He was always quick with a laugh, a hug, or a helping hand depending on what those around him needed most.
Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Kimberly Jones; daughter, Brandi (Jake) Reilly; sons, Ryan and Nathan (Kara) Jones as well as his mother, 12 grandchildren; 2 sisters, 4 brothers, and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews.
Because of our dad’s love of happy times with friends and family we have chosen to forgo a traditional service. Instead, we will be celebrating his life with drinks, food, laughter, and stories on Saturday, February 29, 2020 from 3:00 until 6:00 p.m. at the Joco Center, 805 Wood Street, in Three Rivers.
In lieu of flowers, we ask that you donate to your favorite charity in our Dad’s name and let us know the difference being made. He was happiest when he was helping.
