1925 - 2020

Ernest Paul JonesErnest Paul Jones, 94 of South Point, Ohio, went to be with the Lord on Friday, April 3, 2020 at home. He was born April 5, 1925, in Bevinsville, Kentucky, a son of the late Frank and Roxie Jones. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife of 62 years, Johnna Jean Eaton Jones, four brothers - Fayette Jones, Levi Jones, Alvin Jones, and Holice Jones, and seven sisters – Mattie Walker, Sarah Combs, Thelma Autore, Burnice Jones, Bonnie Jones, Dolly Jones, and Elva Winters. He is survived by his son Gregory E. Jones (Ella), two grandsons Joshua Jones and Caleb Jones, granddaughter Lucy Gannon, great-grandaughter Charlotte Jones, and several nieces and nephews. Ernie was a graduate of Wheelwright High School, attended the University of Kentucky, and was a graduate of Marshall University. He was a retired principal with the Fairland School District in Proctorville, Ohio, and previously taught and coached basketball and baseball at various schools including Quincy, Ohio and Coal Grove, Ohio. He was a veteran of World War II, having served 21 months in the United States Marine Corps with service in Hawaii, Iwo Jima, and Japan. He received the presidential unit citation, the naval unit citation, and ribbons of the Pacific Theater. He was honored many years later as the Honorary Grand Marshall of the Ironton Memorial Day Parade in 2003. Ernie was a longtime member of the South Point United Methodist Church. After his retirement from Fairland East Elementary, Ernie spent many hours on the golf course and was an accomplished golfer, a hobby he continued up until recently. He will be greatly missed by his family members who will cherish his memory. In observance of the current health restrictions, a private funeral service will be held with the family on April 4, 2020 with entombment to follow in the Rome Cemetery Mausoleum in Proctorville Ohio.

Sincere condolences to Ernie's family. He was my teacher in 1958 and my friend later when I became a teacher, also. He once tried unsuccessfully to recruit me to Fairland to fill a vacancy there. I still consider that a high honor. I respected him greatly.
