On Tuesday, June 19, 2018, the sweet spirit of our beloved Leroy Augusta Jones went to join our Savior in that home not built with hands, but whose maker and builder is God.  He was the son of the late Arthur and Frances Jones, born in Calera, Alabama on December 17, 1934.

He was united in marriage to Rosie Williams Hudson on August 1, 2001.
