Obituary for Elmer Walker Jones

Elmer Walker Jones, 83, passed away January 27, 2018 in the loving presence of his family he so dearly loved. He was born in Phil Campbell, Alabama to the Rev. J.O. and Martha Jones. Walker is survived by his wife of 64 years, Johnnie; his son Larry (Jenny) Jones; and daughters Peggy (John) Degelow, and Debbie (Ron) Rougeau. He is also survived by grandchildren Carrie (Ollie) Nichols, Jennifer (Billy) Fraley, Lorissa (Pat) McClanahan, Eric (Faye) Degelow, Brian (Jessi) Degelow, Ryan (Lisa) Rougeau, Mary (Matt) Browning and Rebeca Rougeau, and his great grandchildren, Jordan, Will, Ethan, Aubrey, Madison, and Heidi. Walker is also survived by two brothers, Orval Jones, and J.P. (Mildred) Jones and one sister, Rose Leola Gordon. Walker loved and embraced life, and while he enjoyed traveling the country by RV upon retiring from the Lexington V.A., and the many friends he and Johnnie met through square dancing and wintering in South Texas, the times he treasured most were "making memories" with his family. He loved attending the annual Jones reunion and seeing his siblings and their families every year. Walker will be forever missed and cherished.
