Peyton Anthony Jones

A celebration of life for Peyton Anthony Jones, 15, was at 6 p.m. Monday at Grace Fellowship Church in Lampasas.

Peyton died Jan. 30, 2018. He was born May 17, 2002, in Killeen to Shante’ Seward.

Peyton attended schools in Copperas Cove, Gatesville, and Lampasas. He was a sophomore at Lampasas High School. Peyton enjoyed playing golf with his Pops and had a love for the Oklahoma Sooners. Peyton also enjoyed his many snuggles with his Nanners. His passion was drawing and playing Clash of Clans with his dad and cousin Oakley. Weekend movie trips with his Nana and Papa were also a favorite pastime. He loved going to the lake with his family and grilling steaks.

His quirky sense of humor and love of practical jokes always had everyone around him laughing. Peyton had the biggest heart and was always thinking about the needs of others before his own. His legacy touched the hearts of many.
