Robert Leroy Jones (69) passed away unexpectedly on June 16 in Bangor surrounded by family. He was born in Calais to Floyd and Helen (Parsons) Jones on May 25, 1951.

Robert graduated from MDI High School in 1969 and then enlisted in the Army in 1971. He served for two years on active duty and then was reserved for four more years.

He was especially supportive of his daughter Sara’s YMCA swim team for the 11 years that Sara participated. Robert continued to volunteer after she graduated. Later in life, he enjoyed running in 5K races, including in England and in Hawaii.

Robert had a great love of life, he brought joy and love to all who surrounded him. He loved telling stories and making people laugh. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and friend.

Our condolences from the MDIHS Class of '69. I personally remember Bob as one of the greatest supporters of high school basketball. I sat beside him at most of the games and we always had a great time. I would also have to say he was one of the top dancers in the class at our reunions. He will be sorely missed and there will be a empty space beside me at the games
