CASTLE DALE - Ramal D. Jones, age 74, passed away in his home with his family by his side on Sunday, May 19, 2013 in Castle Dale, Utah. Ramal was born June 1, 1938 in Price, Utah and raised in Castle Dale, Utah. He joined the Army in 1957. He then joined the US Navy in 1959 where he served on the USS Swordfish Nuclear Submarine. In 1960 while in New York going to nuclear power school, he met his sweetheart Carole Corrigan. They were married on the US Navy Base in Honolulu, Hawaii on April 11, 1961.

He was well known in his community as the "dinosaur man" and was well known around the world for his dinosaur discoveries. He invented a machine for finding dinosaur bones, he was an avid outdoorsman, and he loved taking his sweetheart to the desert where they discovered two dinosaurs.
