Henry Harold Jones.
Henry Harold Jones, the son of the late Timothy Jones and Viola Mack Jones-Evans, graduated from high school in Berkeley County, S.C. and then enlisted in the Air Force and served for 20 years. He earned numerous awards and did two tours in Vietnam before retiring in 1976.
Following that he worked as a supervisor for Trak Auto and was highly respected by all who knew him. His mother introduced him to Ruby McFadden and after a whirlwind courtship, he realized Ruby was the love of his life and that he couldn’t let her get away. They married on Sept. 10, 1965 and had two daughters.
Having joined First Baptist Church of Glenarden in 1995, he worked tirelessly, assisting the pastor, Elder Frank Grier, singing on the Inspirational Choir and offering his services wherever the opportunity presented itself.
Henry leaves to cherish their memory of him; his devoted wife of 49 years, Ruby Daisy Jones; daughters, Vikki D. Johnson, Bronx, NY; Geri Jones, Glenarden; grandson, David DeAndre Johnson; goddaughter, Lauren Williams; sisters, Sally Nichols (Earl) and Maggie Scott (Ben); brothers, David Jones (Oclivery) and Joenathan Jones (Gloria).
