Anthony Earl Jones

January 22, 1938 - December 24, 2015

Anthony Earl Jones, 77, went home to be with the Lord December 24, 2015. He was born to the late Leo and Ollie Henry Jones in Selma, NC. He served his country in the Virginia National Guard and retired from the Naval Aviation Depot as a General Foreman. He enjoyed gardening and being a general handyman, fixing things that weren’t even broken; but his biggest enjoyment was being Pawpaw and teaching Sunday school at Gateway Free Will Baptist Church where he was a member since 1966.
Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife of 60 years, Margaret; his children, Tony and Stephen Jones, and Jennifer Speelman and her husband Tim; grandchildren, Jason and Brian Jones, Stephanie Crow and her husband Dan, Daniel, Victoria, Olivia, Kimberly, and Michael Speelman; and great-grandchildren, Christopher and Alex Crow.
A service to celebrate his life will be held Wednesday, December 30th, 2015, at Gateway Free Will Baptist Church at 1pm with burial to follow in Rosewood Memorial Park. The family will receive friends Tuesday evening at Altmeyer Funeral Home, 5792 Greenwich Rd. Virginia Beach, from 6-8pm. Please visit to offer a note of condolence to the family.

What our families say...

In my opinion, there is no better facility in Virginia than Altmeyer Funeral Homes. Not only was Chris Sisler there to hold my hand every step of the way, his family members were holding the door on the day of the funeral to help and encourage me. I will never forget their grace. He led me and my family through the process as a personal friend and neighbor, and as the ultimate professional.
