Honorably Retired Chief of Police Darrell Jones (AGE 57)
It is with sad regret that we inform you, Aransas Pass Police Chief Darrell Jones (Retired) has passed away. We were notified that he passed away either Friday evening or Saturday morning at his Ranch. His services will be held by Charlie Marshal Funeral Home in Aransas Pass, Texas. The date and time are being determined.
Chief Jones began his law enforcement career with the Aransas Pass Police Department as a reserve officer back on November 16, 1977. He ended up going full-time with the department on April 24, 1979. He remained with the department for many years, moving up through the ranks until becoming the Chief of Police on August 11, 2003. He remained as the Police Chief until his retirement on February 3, 2012. Not ready to completely give it up (which any cop can understand), he stayed on as a reserve until deciding to seek his honorably retired status on October 18, 2012. Chief Jones moved a little north of Aransas Pass where he lived out his time on his ranch. Chief Jones will be missed by many within Law Enforcement throughout the Coastal Bend and Texas. Chief Jones was also known for his charity towards law enforcement-related non-profits, and he will be missed by those hearts he touched throughout his career.
Rest in peace, Chief Jones.
