Just confirmed what I had heard late yesterday, that S.D. "Special Delivery" Jones died Sunday in Antigua.

Besides losing to Bundy at WM, he was Andre's tag team partner when
Studd & Patera cut Andre's hair.

That was a great story on Jones Greg.

Rest in piece S.D. He was great at what he did and like we are talking about in another thread about Funaki, Jones did his job and was employed for many many years because of it.

RIP SD Jones, who was a particular favorite of my best friend Bobby and I in the late 70s...we would groan and shout encouragement through his many beatdowns and cheer like mad when he would occasionally defeat Johnny Rodz or Baron Scicluna

I was a huge Special Delivery Jones mark as a kid.  Perfered that to SD Jones.

 

Capt. Lou put him over always on TV saying he had a head that could break open a coconut.

 

RIP

My dad wasn't a wrestling fan at all, but whenever he heard the announcer say "S.D. - 'Special Delivery' -Jones", he just cracked up.  He thought it was so stupid.

RIP, Special Delivery.

Definitely one of the most popular jobbers of all-time and seemed like a nice guy.  R.I.P.

My hometown was a C-List stop for the WWF in the mid-80s. So we got to see a lot of S.D., and it was kind of a big deal since he was on T.V. At house shows he also had a chance and won a few matches every now and again.
