Larry Wayne Jones Jr., 52, of LaFollette, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Saturday, Sept. 4. He was born on Nov. 13, 1968 in LaFollette.
Larry enjoyed walking, racing, fishing and especially basketball. He was member of the Wynn High School Bulldogs Sub-State Championship team, where he played point guard and got the nickname "Flash."
You could always find Larry walking the same path every day in LaFollette. Larry's first stop of the day would be at Rainbow Restaurant for breakfast, then he would make his way to The Local for lunch and, by that afternoon, you could find him sitting in one the booths at Charley's Pizza. Larry loved to eat, especially at those three restaurants, but his favorite place to eat was at his momma's on Sunday.
He was of the Christian faith and attended many churches in Campbell County. Larry was proudly a former electrician at Sun Electric and also worked 20 plus years at Shelby's Grocery.
He is preceded in death by his father, Larry Jones Sr.
Larry is survived by his mother, Linda Jones of Duff; daughter, Megan Dishner and husband, Donnie, of Knoxville; sisters, Melinda Poore and husband, Ronnie, of Duff, Tammy Jones Weaver and Barry Stratton of LaFollette, and the little sister he never wanted in which he would laugh about, Laura Lay and husband, Andy, of Duff; special niece, Jailey Phillips; special great-nephew, Cooper Phillips; best friend, James "Jamie" Testo; and several aunts, uncles, cousins and friends to mourn his passing.
The funeral service was on Wednesday, Sept. 8 in the chapel of Martin-Wilson Funeral Home with the Rev. Lynn Ray officiating.
Family and friends will meet at the funeral home at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 9 to proceed to Oddfellow Cemetery in the White Oak Community for an 11 a.m. interment.
