A limb has fallen from the family tree that says:
Grieve not for me.
Remember the “BEST TIMES,”
The laughter, the songs, the good
life I lived while I was strong!
Irving Joycelyn Jones Jr was born to his dearly departed mother Geraldine Jones an honors English Teacher and HS Counselor and Irving J. Jones Sr a retired Medical Technician and concert pianist.
Irving was Bar Mitzvah as he entered his Hebrew adulthood and was very talkative throughout his life. My elder brother Irving was kind and gladly greeted everyone with a bright smile and a warm handshake.
Irving leaves behind his two younger sisters CDR Anita L Jones-Chowyuk, USN-Ret and family; and Capt Renee E Jones-Peery, USAF-Ret and family. Irving is truly grateful for his extended family at FEDCAP Saphier House Riverdale, NY.
He also leaves behind his mother’s sisters Aunt Dolores Goines and family, Aunt Dorcas Lay and family, Aunt Laurel Scully/Tai-Young and family, and Aunt Clydine Hope and family.
And his father’s brothers and sisters Mr & Mrs Rudolph Jones (deceased) family, Uncle Beresford Jones and family, Aunt Frances Frisby (deceased) family, Aunt Dorothy Grier and family and Uncle Benny Jones and family.
