On Monday January 17, 2022, at 11:08 a.m.  God sent his angels into Ed’s room at 1287 Walnut Hollow Road and whispered Ed come with me your time here is over no more pain or suffering. Ed departed this life to live with his heavenly father. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a brother, Davis Jones.

He is survived by his devoted and loving wife of 60 years, Elizabeth Watson Jones and their son, Kerry Q. Jones, Sr.; two grandchildren, Kerry Q. Jones, Jr. and Katelyn E. Jones; one great-granddaughter, Braydee A. Jones; brothers, Carl A. Jones of Lynchburg; Douglas W. Jones (Gale) of Fredericksburg; sisters-in-law Faye Jones and Beverly Jones and host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Ed was a dedicated and faithful member of Wingfield Baptist Church where he served as the chairman of the Trustee Board for many years until his health failed. He attended Dunbar High School and graduated in 1956. He served on the All Dunbar Reunion Committee. Edward joined the United States Navy and later worked at General Electric and Ericson Companies for 38 years. He loved fishing, sports, photography, and catering.

The family would like to extend our special thanks for the care that was given to our loved one displayed by the doctors, nurses, dialysis staff with Centra Health, Heartland Health and Rehabilitation Center.

My deepest condolences to the entire Jones family. Even though I only knew him for a shirt time, he made a huge impact on my life as we shared a lot in common (retired military and both diagnosed with the same illness). I wish I knew him during his prime years. Thinking of the family during this time.

I am saddened to learn that my friend Edward Jones, Jr. has departed this life, and I extend my sincere condolences to his family, friends and loved ones. I’ve known Ed almost my entire life as part of the Wingfield Baptist Church family. I knew his father & mother as well from my childhood years, and I’ve always viewed Ed Jr. as an honorable representative of their legacy. Ed’s own legacy is one of strength, good character, kindness, and a sincere compassion for others. Ed will be missed, and I am honored that our life’s paths crossed.
