It is with deep sorrow and immense love that we mourn the passing of Zachary “Tyler” Wayne Jones, known affectionately to many as ‘Big Jonesy.’ Tyler Jones passed away on Sunday, February 25, 2024 at Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center in Danville, KY. Born on February 2, 1997, in Danville to Jerry Manier and Emily Jones Manier. He was a charismatic soul who brought love and joy to every room he entered.

His passion for life was evident in his many hobbies, including football, basketball, fishing, and cooking.
