Obit: Stan Jones

Stan Jones, Pro Football Hall of Famer and former defensive line coach of the Denver Broncos for 18 years, passed away on May 21, 2010, in Broomfield. Stan was born in Altoona, Pa., on Nov. 24, 1931, to Naomi Justine Murray and Paul Jones.

After 40 years in the NFL – 13 as a player and 27 as a coach – Stan retired to his home in Fraser. Stan is preceded in death by his wife of 47 years Darlis and is survived by his daughter Sherrill; two sons, Kevin (Klea) and Tony; and five grandchildren Tory, Taylor, Tanner, Alfredo, and Anthony; as well as several cousins.

He was a wonderful husband, father, teacher, coach, friend and consummate storyteller … he will be missed by his family, lifelong friends and teammates.

A celebration of Stan’s life will be held with friends and family on Friday, June 4, at the National Western Stock Show Complex in Denver from 5-9 p.m. In lieu of flowers please make contributions to Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund,
