We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Potter Funeral Home
Michael "Jonesey" A. Jones, 61, of Chaplin, CT lost his battle with cancer on July
29, 2022, surrounded by those who loved him dearly. Mike was the son of the
late Melvin and Doris Jones of Mansfield, CT. He is survived by his former wife,
Jennifer Boldulk and their beloved children, Samantha Cone, Wade Jones, and
Karagan Jones, his brother Marvin Jones; sister Margo Jones and her
children, Danielle and Ashley Jones; sister Lisa Jones-Hite (David) and her children
Jared Bessette, Jessica Bessette Rivera, and Jackie Bessette.
Mike grew up in Mansfield, CT on a dairy farm where he learned his ethic of hard
work from his father. He worked at C.R. Levesque Trucking in Monson, MA,
driving his big beautiful Kenworth and traveling all over the U.S. and Canada
hauling heavy equipment. Mike never turned down a long haul, he was known at
work as the Saint Bernard (gentle giant.) His most valued time was spent riding his
Harley with son Wade, friends and cousin, beach vacations and eating at great
restaurants with daughter Karagan. Mike had many friends here in CT, around
the country, and even in Australia. He will be greatly missed. Gone way too soon.
Calling hours will be 2PM-4PM on Saturday, August 13, 2022 at Potter Funeral Home,
456 Jackson Street, Willimantic, CT. He will be buried in Morrisville Vermont on Labor Day weekend.
