He was born on August 13, 1945 in Lubbock to Albert and Dorothy Jones. Randy graduated from Monterey High School in 1963 and until his death kept in touch with many of his high school friends. He attended Texas Tech University and South Plains College. For 15 years, Randy was employed by Continental Airlines, receiving accolades of achievements when he calculated a specific passenger weight/baggage ratio which the airline industry continues to use. In the early 1980s, Randy opened one of Lubbock’s first travel agencies, Prince Jones Travel, Inc., and he remained actively involved in this venture. His love of tennis found him playing in state and national tournaments in the 1980s and 90s. Preceding Randy in death is his father, Albert Jones, grandparents, L.O. and Flois Neill and Charles and Hallie Jones.
His survivors include his mother, Dorothy Jones; wife, Jane; son, Randal Kevin; daughters, Jennifer and Amy; and grandchildren, Brandi, Brooke, Maddie, Charleigh, and Grisham; and one great grandchild, Fallyn; plus, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
