Both parents Jess and Mary Jones, brother Richard and sisters Helen, Dorothy, Louise and Janice. Ralph is survived by his wife Lummie Witt Jones of 44 years, son Rodney Jones and grandchildren, Samantha, Rodney Jones, Jr (RJ),and Alex. Brother-in laws Tom Witt (Meg) and John Witt (Mary) and many nieces and nephews and loyal and loving friends. Ralph was known for his love of reading, his wit and his knowledge of trivia, his entertaining stories and common sense along with country music. He enjoyed history. He dearly loved his family and his various farm animals, and seeing the deer and wildlife in the fields from the front porch. For the last 40 years he kept a diary everyday of what happened, the weather and rain.
Friends were very dear and close to him and he talked about the many adventures they had anytime someone would listen. Service will be 2 pm Thursday, at Bennett & Barden Funeral Home, with visitation an hour prior. Interment will be in Old Powhatan Baptist Church Cemetery.
