Shannon Heath Jones

Shannon Heath Jones, 45, passed away July 9 following an extended illness and subsequent complications related to COVID pneumonia.

Shannon was a 27-year employee of Pilgrim’s Pride and a passionate member of Banshees MC of North Alabama. He loved all things classic, including music, restored vehicles and the uncomplicated joy of an open highway from the back of his bike.

Shannon is survived by mother, Regina Jones, and brother, Nathan Jones (Christy). He was dad to daughter, Cheyenne Stafford (Jamie) and son, Isaac Jones, and papa to grandson Eli Stafford.  His extended family, including grandmother Shirley Richey and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins, loved him well.

Shannon was greeted at his heavenly home-going by his father, Randie Jones, and grandparents Vester and Sue Jones and JC Richey.

The family will receive visitors at Akins Funeral Home July 12 from 5-8 p.m. and July 13 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Funeral service will follow at 1 p.m. at Akins Funeral Home Chapel, with Nathan Jones officiating.

Pallbearers will be Cody McDougle, Kris “Skid” Whitehurst, Chris Vess, Conner Jones, Cameron Jones and Jamie Stafford.

Burial will follow at Franklin Memory Gardens.

The family extends their thanks to the caregivers of Kindred at Home, the doctors and nurses of Decatur Morgan Hospital and the staff of Akins Funeral Home for their kind and compassionate care.
