Brian Wayne Jones, was long-haul truck driver and resident of Red Deer, Alberta. He passed away peacefully with family by his side on August 24, 2021 at the age of 67 years at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre.
Brian was born in Vulcan, Alberta in 1954. He was one of six children in the family.
The Jones family was a musical family and Brian played multiple instruments throughout his youth. He started with the Baritone horn at age 11, then moved to the trombone and eventually ended up with the Tuba like his older brother Keith.
Brian had a passion for vehicles. This fueled his enjoyment and involvement in drag racing. When he wasn’t on the road trucking, he had his head under the hood of his GTO, always working to tweak that extra engine horsepower. Brian loved the track and the enjoyment of being around his racing friends and their cars. He also dispatched and was office manager for Eagle Transport out of Red Deer.
Brian is survived by two older brothers, David Barry Jones and Elgin Keith Jones; one sister, Evelyn May Jones; a daughter, Billie Jo Kramer-Nielsen (nee Jones); a son, Jody Free Fisher; and many grandchildren. He was predeceased by his father, Robert Lloyd Jones, and mother, Doris May Jones (nee Stevens); two sisters, Lynda Diane Smith (nee Jones) and Pamela Yvonne Jones; and his son, Tyson Wayne Lloyd Jones.

A Luncheon will be held on May 06, 2022 at 3:00pm at the Royal Canadian Legion following the Graveside Service.
Brian’s laughter and smile will be missed by many.
