Obituary

Bobby Lee Jones; the third of seven children was born January 12, 1938 to John and Lizzie Jones un Norfolk, VA.

Bobby spent his early childhood in Portsmouth, Virginia where he attended I.C. Norcom High School and there graduated in 1956.

Upon leaving high school, Bobby joined the United States Navy where he served honorably for 22 years. After retirement Bobby attended City College here in San Diego where he earned two degrees; one in Liberal Arts, and the other in Business Management before going to work at Naval Medical Center San Diego where he worked for 18 years before retiring.

Bobby was a loving, kind and gentle spirit. He was an avid gardener and loved and grew roses with a passion until his health would not allow him to give them all the attention they required. His spiritual life involved him singing in the Male Chorus for several years and he was a Deacon in every church he became part of. He was faithful and he loved the Lord with all his heart.

Bobby and Carol married in 1992 and have shared 28 wonderful and loving years together before Bob gave in to dementia that had plagued his life for the last 15 years.

Bobby leaves to mourn his passing and treasure his memories, his lovely wife Carol, his one and only living sibling Dewana Everette of Virginia and a host of nieces and nephews.
