Carroll Wayne Jones, age 82, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Sunday, January 14, 2018. He was born July 26, 1935, in Ector, Texas, to Iowa and Naomi Jones. He was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers, Hoyt Jones and John Jones.

He was an active member of the First Methodist Church in Bonham, was Director of the Fannin Soil and Water Conservation District, and a Master Mason in the Grand Lodge of Texas. He and Chloe had a wonderful marriage of 62 years and Carroll is survived by his wife; four children: Mark Jones, Cindy Sinclair, David Jones, and Joani Lee, along with all spouses; eight grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
