Timothy Jones, age 63 of Marianna, passed from this life Wednesday afternoon, March 12, 2014, at his home surrounded by his loving family. Timothy was born July 9, 1950, in Dothan, Ala., to the late Charlie Austin Jones and Minnie Bragg Watford. He is a lifelong resident of the Jackson County area and a member of the Alford Baptist Church. Timmy had a long career in the road construction business, beginning in 1967 with Baxter's Asphalt. Over the next 37 years, he would go on to work for White Construction and Anderson Columbia to gain the title of General Superintendent. In 2004, he fulfilled a lifelong dream and began his own road construction company, Jones Construction Company of Northwest Florida, Inc. where he worked until present day. Throughout this time, he earned the respect of his coworkers and people in his industry. He made many lifelong friends and would often talk about the work they had accomplished together. He rarely met a stranger and is most often remembered as someone always willing to help a friend in need.
