Andre Reginnald Jones passed away Tuesday, April 10, 2012. Age 18 years. He was born October 17, 1993 in Saginaw, Michigan to Felicia Jones and Reginnald Cooper.
With his winning smile, bright and comical personality, Dre won the hearts of all he touched. He loved his family and friends. He was kind, agreeable and always willing to help. Most notable about his agreeable nature was his quick phrase, “That’s good enough! You know I’m not hard to please!” He would then flash that famous smile.
