Hayden Fisher Jones, 89, passed away in Webster, TX on August 1, 2014. He was born on January 7, 1925 in Angus, TX to Levi Edward Jones and Carrie Belle Fisher-Jones. Hayden is survived by his daughter, Victoria Anne Jones; son, David Hayden Jones; and his brother in law William Dewitt Paul Jr; and numerous family members and friends.

Hayden served in the Navy in the Pacific during World War II.  He then used the GI Bill to attend the University of Texas where he met his wife.  He was married just before shipping out for the Korean War.  The family joked that he spent his honeymoon on a cruise to Hawaii.  After returning from Korea he settled in Houston and finished his Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Houston.  He worked for Houston Lighting and Power for 37 years and retired in 1986.

Hayden had a passion for gardening and loved to plant flowers around his house.




  1. Hayden and I worked together for over 20 years. He was always a true gentleman. I will be unable to attend the funeral but I want the family to know that their father had the respect of his employees and the company. He was a good friend to me. He will be missed.

  2. Uncle Hayden was so brilliant and kind. His mind never stopped–always thinking. He loved gardening, and he and Daddy loved to talk about their shared passion. He quietly served his family his entire life, and I will miss him so much. Vicky and David, you are still in my prayers. Love you all.
