Mr. Jones was a pioneer and pillar of our community and the Eastside of Gary, he raised several of us in in our neighborhood, from the Williams family, the Brittion family, the Washington family and so many other families that lived on 21st and Kentucky Street. He help raise up a village, scolded us when we did wrong and praised us when he saw us do what was right, I have always enjoyed his present whenever me or my brothers visited his home, he was a quiet and peaceful man and he will be truly missed, my prayers to the family and God bless you all.
