Nicholas “Nick” Allen Jones was born on December 12, 1991 and passed away on September 18, 2015.
In Nick’s short time, he lived his life doing things he loved. He had a passion for anything outdoors. Golfing was a favorite of his, in fact he was all league his senior year at Lassen High School where he graduated in 2010. He also played many other sports in his youth; his family said he was a natural athlete. He also had a passion for motorcycles.
He loved to fish, hunt and just enjoyed being with his family, whether it was camping or doing things around the house. He was one who “tinkered” with things; he had to take them apart to see how they worked before he would use them.
He had more “best” friends than his family knew was possible. Many whose lives he touched are now asking themselves, “What would Nick Jones do?”
In 2013 he graduated at the top of his class from MMI (Motorcycle Mechanics Institute) in Phoenix, Arizona.
At his sister Ashley’s recent wedding, he told her he “loved being in a suit, and that he could be in one everyday.” Nick thought he was meant to do something where he could wear one daily. He had a very special relationship with Ashley’s daughter, his niece, Addison. They were crazy about each other.
Nick believed he was meant to be born many years ago; he was an old soul who didn’t understand how people lived their lives today. In fact his philosophy was, “you only live once, live in debt.”
“Our Nick” is survived by his parents, Ed and Tina (Cordoba) Herrera and Tim Jones of Susanville. His beloved sister, Ashley (Justin) Sperle, his brother Anthony Herrera. Niece Addison Sperle. His grandparents; Berto and Pam Cordoba and David and Christine Westfall, of Susanville.
Aunts and uncles, Keith Cordoba of Susanville, Jeff and Christen Herrera of Lemoore, Ca, and Randy and Tami Bradshaw of Woodbridge, Ca. Plus many other aunts, uncles and cousins.
To the “Jim’s you know who you are, don’t be sad – Nick is now at peace. Live your lives as you know Nick would want you to.”
Donations can be made to the Lassen High Golf Team, and or the Junior Fishing Derby as those were two of Nick’s passions.
Services will be at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Saturday 11:00a.m. with graveside service to follow at Diamond Crest Cemetery. Reception to follow at Monsignor Moran Hall.
