Ray Edward Jones, of Brevard, beloved husband, daddy, papaw, brother and friend to many, entered into the presence of The Lord Nov. 2, 2020.

He was born in Rosman to Johnny and Dixie Jones. In addition to his parents, his sister, Christine Rice (Tracy); sister, Marilyn Jones, that passed away as an infant, and his brother, Floyd Jones preceded him in death.

He spent most of his life as a car salesman and could sell a ketchup Popsicle to a lady wearing white gloves in the middle of July. As many of you were able to hear his wonderful ability as a self taught guitar player, he enjoyed doing that until the very end. He wrote many songs and sang for the Lord at church often. Even with the Alzheimer’s taking over his mind, he still remembered how to play even if he couldn’t get the words to form. It brought us all joy and smiles to our face.

He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Marilyn; son, Stacy (Misty); daughter, Tracy Galloway (Barry); grandchildren, Whitney Evett, Matt Davis, Hunter Galloway (Jacksie Anna), and Tanner Galloway (Rosie); great-grandchildren, Kayleigh, Bently, Jaxson, Parker Ray, Carter and Jazmyn; his sisters, Hazel Tucker (Bob) and Sheila Tinsley (Mike); sister-in-law, Mary Jones; and many wonderful nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, monetary gifts are appreciated and will be used for funeral, medical and family expenses.

A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 8, 2020, at Rosman Baptist Tabernacle. The family will receive friends following the service.

Moody-Connolly Funeral Home and Crematory is caring for the family.
