Tillman's life was a beautiful tapestry woven with threads of love, kindness, and passion for life. He was a man of many interests and hobbies; from hunting in the quiet wilderness to casting his line into serene waters for a day of fishing. Golf and bowling were not just games for him but avenues where he formed lasting bonds with friends and family.

Tillman is survived by his wife of 66 years, Joanna Morris Jones; son, Steven Mark Jones and wife Debbie of Virginia; daughter, Melissa Anne Jones and husband Luc Guglielmi of Georgia; sister, Donna Lee York of Baton Rouge, son in-law, Donald Mark Bonin and 3 grandchildren, Sarah Elizabeth Bonin, Mary- Caroline Bonin Langford, and Lily Anne Jones.

Tillman is preceded in death by his parents, Tillman Earl Jones Sr. & Thelma Lee Jones; daughter, Elizabeth Jones Bonin and brother, Dale Lynn Jones.

His spirit will forever be cherished by those who knew him well. Tillman leaves behind a legacy that will continue to inspire generations to come. In this time of mourning, we find solace in the memories we shared with him and in the knowledge that his warmth will always remain in our hearts.

In the loving memory of Tillman Earl Jones Jr., may we find comfort in celebrating a life well-lived and a soul deeply loved.

May his soul rest in peace.
