  1. CandleImageI am a friend of Christina and wanted to send my sincerest condolences to the family. I have been praying for y’all to be lifted up and remember the great times with Steve. May God wrap his loving arms around the entire family as they grieve.

  2. CandleImageI had the pleasure of serving with Steve in U.S. Army in the mid 80’s. Steve was a great person who you couldn’t help but love. As a Squad Leader, he was a respected leader who cated greatlynfor his soldiers and visa versa. He was a dedicated family man who deeply loved his family. I will always remember Steve’s dry humor and his ability to run like a gazelle.

    I will always remember SGT Steve H. Jones as my friend and Commrade-in-Arms.

    May his memory be eternal… ✝️

    • Thank you SFC Sam J. Koutouzakis,
      It’s so nice to be able to read about dad from one of his fellow soldiers.

      Dad was always so witty.
      I always wanted to be like him in that way but it never came naturally to me!

      He was always willing to give the shirt off of his back to anyone who needed it.

      I think he learned that from my Nana who always instilled Godly virtues in us.

      I can never even remember a time where he ever complained or spoke bad about anyone.

      I loved how all of the soldiers in Germany called dad , “Pops.”

      He was not only a Wonderful, selfless and Loving Dad to us, but to all of you.

      Thank you again for sharing.
      May God bless you and Keep you in His Loving arms. ❤️

      Sgt Steve’s daughter,
      Angie
