He leaves his daughter, Amanda Jones of Albuquerque, New Mexico and two brothers, Frank Jones, wife, Tonya and son, Mathew of Williamsburg and Don Jones and wife, Mary Carol of Hampton.

He began his career in the culinary field when he was 14 and decided that’s what he wanted to pursue. He was nominated and awarded to be included in the1985 book of” Outstanding Young Men of America”. He was awarded certificates of excellence in various divisions of corporate food service and won regional & national acclaim for his culinary skills. He served as restaurant manager and executive chef for several restaurants and large corporate hotels in Newport News, Williamsburg and Northern Virginia. The past 15 years he was the executive chef with his partner, Virgie King of Smithfield, at their café , The Deli Basket in Hilton Village. He loved serving his customers, bantering with them or telling them stories, always with a cheerful smile.

We will all miss the joy he brought to all that met him.

There will be a private celebration of his life at their home in Smithfield at a later date.

Service arrangements are in the care of Colonial Funeral Home,14214 Carrollton Blvd. Carrollton, VA.
