March 2, 1952 - September 27, 2021
Mr. William Jones, Jr. went from labor to reward on September 27, 2021. He was born March 2, 1952 to the late William Jones, Sr. and Ethel Mae Barnes Jones. As a child, William was baptized at First Baptist Church, Disputanta, Virginia. He later moved his membership to Third Baptist Church, Petersburg, Virginia. He was known as the dancing man at many churches. You would always see him dancing in the aisles, giving praise to his Lord and Savior. There was much evidence in his faith in Jesus. He knew Him as his Deliverer in the pardoning of his sins. His sister and nieces, Juniesha & Karesha enjoyed the last 3-way conversation which was full of laughter a few days before his passing. He loved his family and his girl, Angela. He will be truly missed by all that knew him and was truly the life of the party. He will forever be in our hearts.
