Obituary for MARSHALL JONES, SR.

Marshall Leon Jones, Sr. loved life and lived it with dignity, integrity and great strength. He was highly respected by those who knew him and always treated others the way he wanted to be treated. He loved God, his family and Alfred Street Church, where he joined in 1986 under the late Pastor, Rev. Dr. John Otis Peterson, who was from his hometown. He was assigned to Membership Group #20, and worked faithfully serving in the needs of the homeless shelter ministry.

Born on August 5, 1945, Marshall departed his earthly life on Christmas Day, December 25, 2014, of a massive heart attack, at his borne in Clinton, Maryland, surrounded by his family. He was the 3rd of four children born to Clarence Matthews Jones, and Mary Louise Newton Jones Brooks of Reedville, Virginia, who preceded him in death. His older brother, Clarence Garfield Jones "Jack", also preceded him in death in Chesapeake Beach. Maryland in the year 2000.

Marshall accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior around 10 years of age and was baptized in the Chesapeake Bay at Taylor's Beach. In Reedville, Virginia. After baptism, he joined Shiloh Baptist Church, where he attended Sunday School and became involved in various children's activities in the youth ministry.

Marshall was educated in the public school system of Northumberland County, Virginia. He attended Julius Rosenwald Elementary School in Reedville, Virginia, and graduated from Central High School in Burgess, Virginia in 1964. He is forever remembered from his school years. He made lifetime friends and left many fond memories that will never be forgotten among his classmates and teachers. He had a senses of humor that drew everyone to him.

He supported many charitable organizations and made a difference by working in programs to improve the lives of youth. He was a supporter of the Clinton Boys and Girls Club and often headed up activities. He also helped as a leader with Pack 1048 of the Boy Scouts of America. He was a Master Mason of Prince Hall Lodge No. 14, F&AM, Washington, DC, and participated in many charitable activities as a role model for youth. He was also a member of the Men's Club at St. John College High School and provided support for student and school activities until his son graduated from St. John's.

Marshall was employed by Pepsi Cola Corporation in various leadership positions, and retired in June of 1999, after 35 years with the company. Upon retirement from Pepsi, he accepted a role in sales leadership from Canada Dry, Potomac Division, and retired from Canada Dry in 2010. During his tenure at Pepsi Corporation and Canady Dry, he was the recipient of many gifts, certificates, and awards for excellence in leadership and job performance. After completely retiring from the workforce in 2010, he spent many wonderful days enjoying life and traveling with his beloved wife, Nancy, the love of his life, and enjoying tons of special moments and events with his granddaughter, Breyanna Burney, who was
the "apple of his eye!"
