Franklin Jones

April 17, 1940 - April 3, 2015

Franklin Nathaniel ìHollywoodî Jones, 74, went to be with the Lord on Friday, April 3, 2015 following a brief illness. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Debbie Jones.

He was a chaplain in the U.S. Air Force and as a result of that experience he was inspired to bring his faith and love to Sunday Morning Hymn Time on WTZQ. His chair is unable to be filled and he will remain in our hearts while his memory brings a smile to our face.

He is survived by his loving wife, Linda Breyare Jones; daughters, Cindi Hipp and Aleshia Beaver; sons, Chris Jones, Kevin Breyare and their families; sister, Doris Nichols and family; nephew and #1 buddy, Bryan Nichols; five grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and many wonderful cousins whom all loved him dearly. Also his friends, Mark Warwick, Ron Crane, Jim Northington, Frank Barnhill and Tom Brown, who were like brothers to him.

A memorial service will be held at 2pm on Tuesday, April 7, 2015 at Balfour Baptist Church.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to First Citizens Bank in care of Linda Breyare Jones.
