David Jones was born September 17, 1938, to the late Lawrence Woods and Lucille Jones in Selma, Alabama.
He was the second child born in a family of 8 children. David started school in the Selma School district, then later re-located to Pennsylvania and he attended the Philadelphia School district.
He accepted the Lord Jesus Christ at any early age. David was outgoing, made friends easily and loved to make people smile. He started working at an early age and had several jobs. After 40 years of dependable service, he retired from Roosevelt Paper Company.
In 1972 David married his 2nd wife, Dolores. David was a family man. He loved spending time with his loved ones and close friends. He liked watching baseball, basketball, football, and horse racing. He also enjoyed checkers, dominoes, pinocle and spades.
David took long walks in the wee hours of the morning. What he loved most was travelling, preferably by car. One year for a vacation, David and Dolores took a 30-day trip around the United States using the Greyhound Bus with the Ameri-pass ticket.
He leaves to mourn: his loving wife of 50 + years, Dolores Jones; his wonderful daughters, Michele and Charlyne; son-in-law, Carl; granddaughters, Lachele, Crystal, Shaunta, and Brittney; grandsons, Falos, Christopher, and Albert; great-granddaughters, Tytiana, Mya, Maddison, London, Azalea, Chloe, Olivia, and Brielle; great-grandsons, Khidir, Caleb, and Christian; one sister, Edna Walker (Leroy); sister-in-Law, Towanda Jones, and a host of cousins, nieces, and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his daughter, Tammy; grandson, Darrell; brothers, Robert, Jimmy, Roosevelt, Hunter, and Alonzo.
