Albert Jones Jr.

Albert Jones Jr. entered into eternal slumber on Sunday, Jan. 14, 2018. He was born in Suffolk on Oct. 4, 1928, to the late Mary and Albert Jones Sr.

Albert graduated from Booker T. Washington High School, West Virginia State College and the University of Virginia Graduate Realty Program.

He was a member of Macedonia AME Church and Omega Psi Phi Fraternity.

Jones-Watford (Percy Jr.); four grandchildren, Alena Knight (Paul) and their three children, Albertrina N. Baker, Amber N. Edney, Percy Jacobie Watford; and a host of cousins, godchildren and friends.
