Timothy David Jones


On April 7th, 2024, Tm passed away at the age of 60 after a battle with a long illness.  Tim loved his family so much and will be deeply missed.


Timothy David Jones was born on July 20th, 1963, in Iowa Falls, IA to David and Kathleen Jones of Ackley.  He was the first of 3 siblings and brother to Mike and Karen. 


Tim was raised on a farm in rural Ackley, IA helping his family in a diversified livestock and grain farm operation, including a seed corn sales business.  Growing up on the farm always involved a strong sense of curiosity and certainly the values of hard work.  There was plenty of times for mischief as well, which Tim and his brother Mike often found. 


Tim was active in many sports over the years, but his passion was for wrestling.  Tim was a state qualifier his Junior and Senior year in high school and always tuned into the Iowa State Wrestling tournament to watch the Iowa wrestlers.


Tim was also gifted musically, learning how to play the guitar, piano, and sing.  This led him to join a band while still in junior high.  The highlight of his musical career was being a member of the band Alias, which was a successful local band playing local venues throughout his high school years.  He sang at numerous weddings over the years accompanied by his sister Karen. 


Tim had a knack for meeting people and engaging in conversations with strangers.  He was outgoing and personable and always made time to learn about others.  Tim was known for his wit and dry sense of humor and would use it strategically to break into conversations.    

The love of Tim’s life was his son, Ben.  Born with special needs, Tim and Ben were inseparable.  They enjoyed hanging out at Dad’s house, spending summers at the lake in Minnesota, and attending many Special Olympics events and the Kiwanis Miracle League baseball events to watch Ben compete. 


Tim is survived by his son, Benjamin Jones of West Des Moines, parents, David and Kathleen Jones of Johnston, IA, brother Mike Jones (Lisa) of Ackley, IA, and sister Karen Treinen (Dave) of Ankeny, IA., as well as nieces and nephews, Lucas (Amy) Jones of Steamboat Rock, IA, Mikayla (Bryce) Eichmeier of West Des Moines, IA., Elizabeth (Justin) Scharf of Grimes, and Elliott Treinen of Tempe, AZ., as well as 6 grand nieces and nephews.  Tim also had a special place in his life for Natalie, Jamie, and Zachary Brand of Grimes.  They were a big part of Tim’s life and anchored to each other with their love for Ben.   


In lieu of flowers, you can donate to the Special Olympics of Iowa or the Kiwanis Miracle League of Iowa.  Tim supported these causes and enjoyed watching his son Ben compete in numerous events over the years.
