“A father’s love is measured in the happiness and success of his children.”
Our beloved Todd was born on September 14, 1968, in Las Vegas, Nevada to Herbert Jones Sr. and Mable Jones. In this union there were 8 children: 3 sons and 5 daughters. At a very early age, Todd accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and was baptized.
Todd attended Clark High School where he played baseball, basketball, track and field, and football. He graduated from Clark High School in 1987 with a noteworthy athletic career behind him. In 1990, he met Sandra Harris whom he later married in 1996. They were married for 17 years and later divorced but continued to have an everlasting friendship.
Our beloved father served in various careers including being a sanitation engineer, environmental remediation specialist, Teamster, and concrete laborer. With these careers, he served 20 years in the Teamsters Union. He also spent his leisurely time as a basketball referee, a football and basketball coach, landscaper, full-time father, and grandpa.
After retiring, Todd spent a lot of time in the kitchen cooking his famous dishes including his flavorful collard greens, black eyed peas, neckbones, and other delicious soul food dishes. Todd loved dedicating time to perfecting his landscape and received numerous compliments for his creativity. He had a great admiration and passion for his cars and audio sound systems throughout his home and cars. He passed that love on to his children. Additionally, Todd relished in contributing to the many successes of his children and was very proud of all his children and their accomplishments.
Todd leaves to cherish in his memory, his three children; Bianca Jackson (Avion) (Las Vegas, Nevada); Tarzra Jones (Las Vegas, Nevada); and Shelden Jones (Las Vegas Nevada); one sister Kathy Galtney (Brad); two brothers Herbert Jones Jr. (Las Vegas, Nevada); Glen Jones (Las Vegas, Nevada); two grandchildren Jordynn Carter (Las Vegas, Nevada) and Jayceon Wilmore (Las Vegas, Nevada); a host of nieces and nephews with a special recognition to Urhynez Stewart (Las Vegas, Nevada) who was more of a son to him. He was preceded in death by four sisters Sherry-Ann Jones, Valerie Jones, Beverly Stewart, Terry Jones; and one nephew Reginald Jones.
“We are confident, I say, and will prefer to be away from the body and be at home with the Lord.”
