Mr. Jones was a retired volunteer with Mount Olive Fire Department. Perhaps he will be best remembered for his “always-on-call availabilty” with Jenkins Gas and Oil Company, and Suburban Gas Company which in later years, assumed Jenkins. As manager of its Mount Olive location, he served the people well with his 40 years of faithful service. He was a member of Mount Olive First Pentecostal Holiness Church.

He is survived by his daughter, Kimberly Jones Allen of Goldsboro; two grandchildren, Kristen Sink and husband, Adam, of Hampstead, and Tyler Allen of Mount Olive; a sister, Lena Jones Price of Goldsboro; two sisters-in-law, Linda Jones of Kinston and Joyce B. Jones of Mount Olive; and several nieces and nephews. Also surviving him is his faithful canine companion, Reese.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Duffy and Elgie Jernigan Jones; and brothers, Bobby Jones, Elvin “Puddin” Jones, and William D. “Bill” Jones and wife, Billie Jean Jones; and a brother in law, Kenneth Price.

A Tyndall service.
