It is with deep sadness that we announce the recent passing of Lloyd Jones, a coach, swim instructor, and friend to the Dad's Club. Lloyd passed away peacefully at home Friday evening of a heart attack. He leaves behind his beloved wife, Andrea Jones, and his son, Van Arthur Jones. 

The Dad's Club has been blessed the last four years to have Lloyd, a retired attorney with a lifelong love of swimming, on our team. He coached and taught with a quiet confidence and encouraging demeanor that has touched many lives both in and out of the water.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, November 30th at McCoy & Harrison Funeral Home located at 4918 Martin Luther King Jr, Houston, TX 77021. Visitation is at 10:00 a.m. with the services starting at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, a fund has been established by Lutheran High School North, where Lloyd coached swimming, to help with expenses and future educational expenses for Van Arthur. Donations are made online at Lloyd Jones Memorial Fund.

Please keep the Jones' Family in your hearts and prayers.
