SPRING HILL, Fla. — Roy Kevin Jones, 54, died September 30, 2013, with his sister, Tina and his nephew, Christopher by his side in Spring Hill, FL.
He was born July 31, 1959, in Poultney, VT, to Clifford Charles Jones, Sr. and Mary (Jones) Belden. He was a loving grandson to Doris and Roy Kevin (Peep) Jones, beloved brother to Clifford Jones, Jr., Tina (Jones) Jensen, John Jones, and Teresa Jones. Roy grew up in Poultney and he was known among his family and friends as sweet and loving to all who knew him. Today we remember him as the “sweetheart” of the family.
Roy graduated from Poultney High, and we are proud that Roy was a veteran of the U.S. Navy.
He enjoyed traveling and he visited his brother Clifford in California, his brother John in Montana, and his sister Tina in Florida. About 10 years ago, Roy moved to Florida to be closer to his sister, Tina and enjoy the warm weather. He made a good life for himself there.
Roy’s ashes will be laid to rest in the Middle Granville Cemetery in July 2014. Memorial and funeral arrangements to follow in July 2014. He was cremated at Pinecrest Funeral Chapel in Spring Hill, FL.
