Curtis Lee Jones

July 11, 1960 — January 6, 2024

Funeral services for Curtis Lee Jones will be held 11:00 AM, Wednesday, January 10, 2024, at the First Baptist Church of Davis, with Pastor Willard McCartney, Jr. officiating. Interment will follow. 

Curtis was born July 11, 1960, in Sulphur. He died Saturday, January 6, 2024, in Davis, surrounded by his family. He and the former Ms. Nancy Jane Ross were married on July 31, 1981, in Davis.

Curtis grew up in Murray County and proudly served in the National Guard. He spent 35 years working in law enforcement. Throughout his career he worked as a police officer for the City of Davis and Turner Falls Park, as well as spent 18 years working in security for the Chickasaw Nation. He spent the final years of his career working with the Murray County Sheriff’s department.

Curtis was a rather quiet man with a kind soul. His servant’s heart made it easy for his family, friends, and co-workers to love him. Curtis was always calm, yet forceful if needed. His death will truly leave a void in the hearts of many.

In remembering Curtis, co-workers of the Murray County Sheriff’s Department said this, “with his help, the Murray County Sheriff’s Department was able to be more effective in solving crimes. The department has lost a great man and in turn, the citizens of Murray County has lost a great man.”
