July 1, 1953 - June 1, 2021
Select link to Livestream Service Raymond Jones, age 67 of Hoschton, GA, passed away peacefully surrounded by family and loved ones, Tuesday, June 1, 2021. Raymond was a devoted son, husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend to many. He was married to his high school sweetheart, Jill for 46 wonderful years. They shared a beautiful life, raising their two incredible sons, Wesley and Eric. Raymond was a successful businessman who was fair, detailed, loyal and proud of his employees and his three Goodyear stores in Conyers, Monroe and Tucker, GA. Raymond was a family man in every sense of the word, from coaching his son's football and baseball teams and planning vacations, to grilling family dinners and helping with homework, he insisted on being present at every event and taking in every moment he had with his wife and sons. An athlete and avid tennis player, Raymond was an active member of ALTA tennis for over 34 years, winning multiple championships in his career. During that time, Raymond also played pick-up matches almost every Monday night with a select group of friends...partly for practice, but mostly as an excuse to spend time with buddies. Later in his life, Raymond would pick up and begin to master, as much as one can, the game of golf. Like tennis, Raymond loved to play the game of golf, but more so, he used it as an excuse to bond with his wife, his two boys, and his friends. An avid outdoorsman, Raymond loved the lake, the ocean and the open sea. A true nature lover, he hunted, fished, loved going to the beach, going on cruises, spending time on the lake, traveling the world with family and friends, and exploring all of the beauty it holds. Also a lover of all things sports related, Raymond enjoyed watching his Atlanta Braves, his Atlanta Falcons, and of course his beloved Georgia Bulldogs. I know it seems cliché, but truly, "Everybody Loves Raymond!" He was strong, steady, a leader and mentor, he was loyal, devoted, cheerful, positive, loving, amazing, full of life and never met a stranger. He was Raymond, he was husband, he was brother, he was dad, he was coach, he was Paw Paw, and he was hero. Simply, Raymond Jones was a great man. Raymond was preceded in death by his mother, Paralee (Pat) Jones; and father, Reginald (Buster) Jones. He is survived by his loving wife, Jill Jones; his sons, Wesley (Megan, sons Raymes & Mason), and Eric (Brooke, daughters Emaline & Everly); and brother, David (Maryann).
