OBITUARY

Eddie Roy Jones, later to be known as Edward R. Jones, was born in Ellaville Georgia on October 16, 1934 to James and Emma Jones.

At a young age he moved with his mother to Jersey City, NJ while his father served in the army during World War II. They later moved to Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn where he attended elementary through high school, graduating from Boys High School in 1952.

He then moved to Jamaica Queens, NY with his parents and attended City College of New York before meeting and marrying his first wife Leila Johnson with whom he had a son Michael Jones in 1955.

In 1957 he joined the army and received training to service missiles and was later stationed in Detroit, Michigan. This started him on the path to becoming a systems engineer where he would eventually work for Lockheed Martin, Digitronics, Control Data, Xerox and Honeywell.

Upon leaving the army he returned to Queens, NY and in 1960 he met Wally Davis who lived across the street from his parents. They dated for 2 years and married on June 2, 1962. They would eventually move to Birmingham, Alabama where he worked for the University of Alabama as a systems engineer and earned his BS in Mathematics. Together they had a son Edward (deceased) and daughters Kim and Kyra.

He returned to New York with his family settling in White Plains where he continued his career in technology working for Xerox and Honeywell and earning a MS in Computer Science from Polytechnic Institute of New York. In 1983 he began his career as a professor of Information Technology at Westchester Community College from which he retired in 1996.

Edward Jones was a loving and devoted husband and father who doted on his family. He loved nothing more than spending time with them, encouraging them and letting them know how proud he was of his family. He often adopted neighbors and friends into his family, offering tutoring, help with job searches and sharing his wisdom and offering guidance. He was active in his community and served on the Board of Assessment and Review in 2006. He was often called on by friends and neighbors for advice and was always willing to offer a helping hand. He loved working in his yard, learning the latest in technology and socializing with friends and neighbors, but most of all being with his family. He had an incredible appreciation for education and instilled this in his children. To this day his wife, Wally credits him with encouraging her to complete her college education.

He leaves his wife of 58 years, Wally; daughters Kim and Kyra; Cousins Jeanette; Jackie; Ella; and Ricky and their children and close friend with whom he considered his brother, Mickey Alston and God Daughter Lynette Alston.

Acknowledgement goes to his lifelong friends and neighbors for their contributions to his life.
