I remember 2 things about Mr Chuck…he laughed and thought it was so funny he had got Ginger a “Mazda”… I mean, it was….just not the one of our dreams 🙂 and 2, waking us up when Ginger, Shelli and I did not want to wake up for Sunday school! I love you Jones Family, my thoughts and prayers are with each of you.
Little brother you will be missed. Joe

Janie and family, you have our deepest and heartfelt condolences. We are truly blessed to have known you and Mr. Chuck and will always remember his smile, cheerful greeting and that twinkle in his eye. We pray for strength for all of you in this time of sadness. Rejoice with the knowledge that he is no longer in pain and is with our Lord.
It was special to have visited with Mr. Jones on Monday, July 1 at his bedside. My life was influenced by him in so many positive ways as a neighbor who lived across the street. Always joyful with sense of humor, Mr. Jones demonstrated to all his strong ethics and morals founded in his strong faith. A great example to the neighborhood children of a loving and caring husband and father. As a builder, he built more than structures but a strong family. An enduring legacy and example for others. Rest in peace, Mr. Jones. Our prayers to the family…best neighbors any one could hope or wish for. Jonathan Wirt
We are so sorry for your loss. Chuck was such a nice man. I will always remember as a young married couple when Harry and I moved to Raleigh NC every time we would come back to visit the Norfolk crowd he always asked us when we were moving back home. He will be missed. Praying for the entire family. Our love and prayers Harry and Susie Wright
I have many wonderful memories of being at your house….Love you..Wendy
Our thoughts and prayers are with you in this great loss. Chuck will really be missed, especially in our Sunday School Class where he loved to discuss the scriptures. Love to the Jones family!
We will miss Chuck. I always looked forward to his comments in our Sunday School Class. He was so original and witty. He often would sing the little song to me “Alice Where Are You Going” 🙂 We will miss his humor and his inspiring testimony. We love all the Jones family and are so glad that we have such wonderful memories of Bro. Chuck. We continue to keep you all in our prayers.
Our deepest sympathy. May God put his arms around you and comfort you, surround you with his love and guidance. He was a blessed man and very strong in his believes! Love and prayers,
Gay and Randy Vaughn
Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We always see a smile when we think of Chuck. We hope knowing he is rejoicing in heaven brings you comfort.
