Mr. Ivey Jones, Jr. of Wallace, North Carolina passed from his earthly life to his eternal life on Saturday, September 7, 2019 while at home. Born on August 29, 1945, he is the son of the late Ivey Jones, Sr. and Mary Ellen Rackley Jones. He is also predeceased by his wife of thirty-nine years—Charlotte T. Jones; sister—Jean Wells; brothers-in-law—Joe Murphy, M.N. Murphy, Louis Teachey, and Max Teachey; and sisters-in-law—Doris Foust and Helen Shearin.

Early in life Mr. Jones fulfilled his military obligation while serving two years in the United States Army from 1967 til 1969. He was a member of the Rockfish Country for thirty plus years where he served on numerous committees and did a large amount of construction repair for the club. He was the “fan of fans” of the Wallace Rose Hill High School football teams during the past thirty-five years and assisted the teams and coaches in many, many ways during those years—missing only four games in this long period of time. This shows his elite love for the school.

The family will receive friends at the residence.
