Jon Michael Pinson, 58, was born in Houston, Texas on December 11, 1958 to Eddie F. Pinson and Elise Snyder. He was surrounded by his family and dear friends during his final hours on earth. After his battle with Cancer, he returned home to the Lord on Monday, August 21, 2017. Jon lived life to the fullest each and every day. He had a passion for music, guitars, the Great Outdoors, hunting, fishing, as well as a dedication and commitment to his work. He especially loved spending time with his countless friends and family. Jon will be remembered best for his kind and giving nature, relentless sense of humor, love of laughter, and never-ending pranks. He was your go-to guy when you needed him most, the first one there to lend a helping hand. He was strong in his faith and love of God. He felt closest to Him when he was one with nature in Kerrville on the hunting lease.
Welcoming Jon into heaven are his mother, Elise Christensen; sister, Tracy Kimmel; grandparents, Dan and Louise Snyder, Jesse and Geneva Pinson; uncles Carl Dan Snyder, Jr., Mack Pinson, as well as other treasured family and friends.
