Frank Jones

Mr. Frank Jones, age 81, passed away Wednesday, May 19, 2021 at Cornerstone Village in Johnson City after a period of declining health.

Mr. Jones was born in Washington County and the son of the late Lester & Blanche (Loudy) Jones. He was predeceased by his sister Margaret (Ray Denton), brother Randy, and sister and brother-in-law Ann & George Morelock.

He graduated from East Tennessee State University in 1961 and New Hampshire College in 1977 with a Master’s Degree. After accepting an early retirement from Raytheon, Frank went on to teach college and work at the USPS while attending massage therapy school. In order to accommodate his numerous motorcycle trips, (two across the United States!) Frank’s final job was CareRide Transport for many years.

Although Frank lived in New Hampshire for the past 45 years, he was always an East Tennessee boy at heart and moved to Cornerstone Village in Johnson City in 2020. He is dearly missed by his companion, Rebecca. Frank is survived by children Jennifer (Ray), Jada (Scott), Sherryn (Michael) and Douglas (Teresa) as well as five grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Fairview Cemetery c/o Zina Forester-Carder 2705 W. Walnut Street, Johnson City, TN 37604. Interment will be private.

I have so many great memories of my dad from the time I can remember through the day he gave me away at my wedding. The best gifts I have been given by him were the gift of life and the gift of the future with my amazing husband and our 2 daughters. Though we were not close or had much contact for the last 25 years, I will always be grateful for the first 29. Saying good bye to him, telling him that I was sorry he was not feeling well and that I loved him 2 weeks before he passed is something I will always be thankful for. I trust that he is now at peace and in comfort.
