Published 9:13 pm Monday, September 16, 2019

Samuel Clayton Jones went home to be with his Lord and Savior on September 16, 2019, at the age of 29. Sam grew up in Troy and presently lived in Tuscaloosa. He is survived by his parents, Vicki and Allen Jones; and brothers, Will Jones and Ben Jones; cousins, Al Renfroe (Laura), Fran Spann (Zach), Jake Wingo (Katie) and Luke Wingo (Alexandra); and second cousins, Scott Taylor Renfroe, Cade Renfroe, Addie Renfroe, Caroline Renfroe, Harper Renfroe, Jones Spann, John David Spann, Jasper Spann and Walker Wingo, Sage Wingo, Jake, Jr. Wingo, and Patton Wingo; and a special friend and brother, Fred Jones.

Sam will be missed terribly, especially by his mom and dad and brothers. His dry wit, his love of “real country music,” hearing his voice singing in the shower, and his sweet spirit will all be missed from our lives and we will never be the same.

Sam was preceded in death by his grandparents, Dr. and Mrs. J. Allen Jones and Mr. and Mrs. William Boyce Glasscock.
