Obituary for LLOYD MATTHEW JONES, SR.

Lloyd Matthew Jones, Sr., was born on August 21, 1943 to the late Charles Franklin and Eva Coby Jones in Calvert County, Maryland. He departed this natural life and entered into his eternal life on Thursday, September 26, 2013.

Lloyd was the second of eleven siblings. He received his primary education from the Calvert County public school system. Soon thereafter he entered into a courtship with Olivia Tyler and were united in marriage on February 8, 1964. During their marriage nine children were born, Lloyd Matthew, Jr., Yvonne Felicia, Melvin Royce, Troy Austin and Ross Anthon. Four children were deceased: Joyce Juanita, Michael Orlandus and two infants. The Jones house was indeed full of excitement, adventure and the curiosity that comes with the territory of not one, but six bubbly children, which filled the house with joy. He adored his wife Olivia, better known as Baby Sis.

By this time many of Lloyd's special attractions became apparent. He enjoyed the finer things in life. Lloyd was a very stylish dresser. He loved wearing Stacy Adam shoes, wide brim hats and fine cologne. When he got dressed, you knew he was in the house, you would smell his cologne down the hall. In his worldly days he was called "Cold Duck, Big Hat, Gun Totting, Boss Suits, Stacey Adam Shoes Jones, but to his wife, Lloyd was her heart. But when he left that type of life behind, he became the man of her dreams.

Lloyd hobbies were: cooking, landscaping , family leisure time and relaxing at home. One of his greatest joys was raising his oldest grandson TJ and TJ's children. Some of Lloyd's favorite movies were: Finding Nemo, Lady and the Tramp, Lion King, Madagascar and Western movies like Buck and the Preacher. Also, he was very educational and involved in the government, politics, NAACP and the Concern Black Men. He enjoyed watching CNN News. It gave him great joy to witness the inauguration of our first black president, President Barrack Obama.

Lloyd was employed at a variety of jobs. He was a construction laborer at various location. He worked at the Hughesville Shelter, Tri-County Community Action. Also, he worked for Catholic Charity as a van driver for the Homeless Shelter.

It was truly a joyous occasion when Lloyd answered the call of the LORD when he was baptized this year in the name of Jesus Christ. God had answered his wife's prayer. It was a delight for them to attend church together and enjoy the service of the LORD. God has been so good to Lloyd during his final days. God blessed him tremendously to continue to drive, cook, mow the lawn and fix up the house.

He leaves to celebrate and cherish his memories, his beloved wife, Olivia Jones; four sons and one daughter, Lloyd Jones, Jr., Yvonne Jones, Melvin Jones, Troy Jones, and Ross Jones; Nineteen grandchildren; fourteen great grandchildren; two daughters-in-law, Barbara Jones, Kenyada Jones; one son-in-law, Gordon James; one sister, Lorelei Savoy; ten brothers, Charles Jones (deceased), Delano Jones (Agnes), Melvin Jones (Barbara), Larry Jones (Maggie), Lorenzo Jones (Faye), Carson Jones, Rodney Jones (deceased) Alvin Jones (Jacqueline), Ellison Jones (deceased) Colbert Jones (Pam); one aunt, Audrey Mackall; one uncle, Robert Coby; three brothers-in-law, Daniel Hurley, William Edward Jones and Earl Smith; nine sisters-in-law, Agnes Jones, Barbara Jones, Faye Jones, Maggie Jones, Pam Jones, Jacqueline, Stella Hurley, Gloria Jones, Cora Smith; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
