Deacon Jones Passes On

DEACON JONES 1938-2013

As we grow older the icons of our youth die off. One of the icons of my childhood passed away on Monday 03 June 2013. Deacon Jones who played in the NFL from 1961 - 1974 Mostly for the Los Angeles Rams, he also spent a while with the San Diego Chargers and finished his football career with the Washington Redskins has joined fellow Fearsome Foursome teammates Merlin Olsen and Lamar Lundy on the immortal gridiron in the great beyond. I'm not good at writing these type of things so I'll just show some cards and pics.
