Obituary for Basil 'Beck' Jones, Jr.

Basil Jones died on February 24, 2024. He was born in Butte, Montana, on August 20, 1936, but the family moved to Livingston when he was quite young, and he spent the rest of his life here.

He is survived by his wife, Dollie, as well as his six children: Butch Jones (Sheri), Mick Jones, Tamra Jones, Tracy Counts (Tony), Terri Whiteside (Jess), and Raded Jones (Rachel). His grandchildren: Chanon Jones, Elisha Jones (Lexa), Krystine Popelka (Jason), Steve Jones, Stephanie Jones, and Levi Counts (Kaci). His great-grandchildren: Wilek and Eowyn Popelka, Ava Jones, Kaitlyn and Dominic Beale, and Ruby Marks and Sunny Counts. His siblings: Sarah Ferguson (Bob), David Jones (Bertha), Bill Jones (Jennifer), Dude Eggar (Janet, deceased), and Donna O’Conner (Don, deceased), sister-in-law Diane Jones, and brothers-in-law Neil Coffman, Bill Lulloff, and Bob Shipley.

He is preceded in death by his father, Basil Jones, Sr., his mother, Gladys Jones Eggar, and his step-father, Harold Eggar. His siblings: John Jones (Phyllis), Jim Jones, Edith Coffman, Gladys Lulloff, Virginia Shipley, and Dick Eggar (Iva). And his grandson: Eric Jones.

Basil was a man of faith who loved his God, Jehovah, and enjoyed sharing the hope of future blessings from God’s Kingdom with others. Lovingly described as “the best pa ever,” he cared for his family deeply. He was a man of integrity who lived his life by the principles he held dear. He loved creation and was a legendary guide for Yellowstone Park and the surrounding area; he freely shared his knowledge of local geology, wildlife, and history with anyone who was interested. And he was always down for a card game.

A memorial service will be held, date yet to be determined.
