Harry "Jonesy" Jones
Harry Jones served honorably in the WWII US Navy Armed Guard Service. Harry was
a happy go lucky sort of guy, always full of life, smiling, friendly and well
liked, but ready for duty when called upon. He had many friends and enjoyed his
tour in the Navy. His friends included Willis Turner, Merris Sandlin, Alvin
Eagleton (Reds), Edward Kaiser, Emery Caron and many more.
After his hitch in the Navy, Harry returned to his home in Colliers, West Virginia,
where he was a member of a family of thirteen children. One of his sisters
introduced him to his future wife, Mary. They were married February 3, 1949
and had three children. He worked for the Wheeling Steel Corporation.
His daughter, Shirley, provided this information and the pictures below. If you

Unfortunately, Harry had a massive heart attack and passed away 12 December 1976,
when only 56 years old, the prime of life.
