Richard Dewayne Jones was born September 28, 1969, in Jackson, MS. He died at his home in Fairhope, AL, February 5, 2022.

Family called him Ricky, he but chose to be called “Ric” after getting older. He married the love of his life, Yulia Lazunova. He was a driller with Rowan Companies. His love of adventure allowed him to travel. He was an avid golfer, and motorcycle racer as well. Although regretting many decisions in life, Ric remained hopeful for better days ahead. If he could, Ric would tell you, “Choose a better road and embrace those you love while you have them.” He will be greatly missed and never forgotten by his family and friends.
