Michael Edward Jones, 72, passed away at home on February 11, 2023, in Arlington, TX.
Mike was born in Hamilton, Ohio on January 6, 1951. He attended Taft High School in Hamilton and graduated in 1969.
Mike is survived by his daughter, Sarah; step daughter, Ashley Morgan, brothers Bob, Ronn, Chris, Scott, and Jim Jones. He is preceded in death by his father, Robert Theodore Jones and his mother, Joyce Hampton Jones.
Mike, or “Mikey”, as friends and family would call him was a wonderful, caring and loving brother. Over the past couple of years, many of the conversations had with Mike were centered on the love and salvation of Our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ. I am confident Mike has now seen Jesus and this gives me great comfort…
It was not unusual for Mike to show acts of kindness towards total strangers on a regular basis. From a kind word, to buying someone a pair of shoes to paying for meals for strangers and more… Mike was also a funny guy and was usually the life of the party. Everywhere he went he made friends.
Not too long ago Mike retired from his job at DFW Flooring Warehouse where he had worked for over 25 years. He recently made the decision to return to work because he wanted to help his long time friend and employer in a time of need and because he always loved his job. His work colleagues welcomed him back with open arms. Unfortunately, Mike didn’t get to return to work… Mikes absence will leave a void in the hearts of the people he worked with at DFW Flooring…
Mike was always a good brother. As we grew up and to this day, most relationships have strengthened.. We seldom had any differences and we always excepted each other the way we were…
Until we see you again in Glory, we will truly love and miss you brother Mike!

Mikey, I am truly going to miss you and all the times we’ve shared together. Over the past couple of years I’m so thankful for how close we became. It was nice to have somebody to laugh with about our human bodies failing us and all the other things…
I especially loved how our conversations evolved more and more about our relationship with Jesus and how his spirit was alive in us. To hear you say, some of the things you have said to me gave me so much happiness and confirmation that you would end up exactly where you are now, in heaven. Thank You Jesus!
Until we see each other again please give Linda and Mom a hug for me. I Love you my Brother
Beautiful, Chris. I’m so glad you have such sweet memories of those conversations with your beloved brother. What peace it brings those of us left behind when we have the assurance of their love for Jesus, and that they are in Heaven with our Lord and other dear departed loved ones. ❤️ 🥲🙏
We loved Mike SO much! To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord! We will ALWAYS remember him!
I will always miss him. We were a big part of each others life for 30 +\- years. It’s just never going to be the same without him. He was one of our salesmen here at our store in Arlington. There was none better. He really enjoyed helping people and I’ve got letters from customers to prove it. My company reviews are full of people raving about him. I could go on and on. Love you Mike. Rest in peace brother.

Mike was a very special person. His energy always would lift you up. I have know Mike 60 years. My dad and your mom went to school together. It was a shock hearing out your passing. You are one person I thought would be with us for a long time. I am sure your mom and dad were glad to see you again. Rest in peace. Your friends here will never forget you. See you later.
