Raphael Phillip Jones

August 15, 1957 — June 29, 2020

Raphael Phillip Jones at the age of 62 closed his eyes and went home to our Heavenly Father. His Last words to his sister was..."I am going Home." Raphael was also known as Ray.

He was an exceptional person who had an exuberant beauty with a loving spirit toward everyone.  Ray's Love for others was shown like a "Ray" of Light. His aura was undeniable. He lit up a room.

Ray's love for others would show through his concern, phone calls and cards (homemade) on every Birthday, Holiday, and anniversaries. Ray was always transparent and took Pride in being an exceptional friend, as it was evident by the way he treated others like family. 

Ray will be missed and will always have a special place in our hearts. Until we meet again, Rest in Peace, our son, brother, family, and friend. Ray is survived by Frances Lee White (Mother), Henry Raymond Jones Jr. (Brother), Francine Leola White-Hardy (Sister), Wendell Latoison Hardy (Brother-In-Law) and a host of nieces and nephews and friends.
