He was named after his estranged father Donnie Jones of Brooksville, Florida. Tim met his dad one time, since then he never saw him again and had been deeply saddened. His dad had one brother Butch Jones. He never saw his uncle either. 

Phyllis Roberts, his birth mother, also from Brooksville, Florida searched for years and then after hours and days of endless research by his mother they were reunited 30 years ago. Happiest day for both of them. They have been in contact ever since that beautiful day.

Tim’s passion was fishing and camping. He spent a lot of his time in the Green Swamp area camping and fishing. Tim fished in many Florida Lakes, rivers and off the coast. One of his favorites was the Chassahowitzka river. Tim was also a certified diver.

Tim was a Journeyman welder by trade.

Tim is survived by three children, Sarah, Molly and Chris. He has two half brothers Greg and Anthony Brice from his mother Phyllis Brice and Roy Brice. Tim as two nieces Keanna Brice, Alexandria Brice a nephew Dillon Brice all attending the University of Florida and Lee Brice of Inverness, Florida.

Carolyn Everett his longtime companion for over 15 years of his life stood by his side day and night. They deeply loved each other, a bond that could not be separated.

Tim served his country in the United States Army and graduated from Kathleen High School in Lakeland, Florida.

Tim, we are surely going to miss that beautiful smile, your friendly nature and your big heart.

God Bless You.
