Obituary for MILTON JONES

On Tuesday morning, June 13, 2017, God called one of His children, Milton Boyd Alfred Jones to his eternal home. He departed this life at the VA Community Living Center in Washington, DC. "To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord."

Milton was affectionately known as "Bunk". He was born on January 15, 1946 to the late Russell Sueal Jones and Laura Elizabeth Spriggs Jones in Chaney, Maryland. He was the fifth of seven children.

He attended the public schools of Calvert and Anne Arundel Counties. Milton joined the United States Army on December 4, 1965. While serving in the Vietnam War, he was injured and given an honorable discharge on October 6, 1967. He received a Purple Heart for his service to his country. He was very proud of his military service.

He was employed with Walter's Builder, Inc. in the 1960's. He also worked for Spriggs Construction Company from 1985 until he began working for himself as a Master Carpenter.

Milton had many interests. He loved fishing and discovering new fishing locations in Maryland.
He had a love of music that started early in life, and he even taught himself to play the piano. He also belonged to two music groups during his lifetime, the Spiritual Specialaries Gospel Group and the Dream lovers. He loved watching sports, especially the Redskins and golf. He enjoyed the outdoors, watching the nature channels, bowling, and spending time with his family and friends. He was well known and well-liked by everyone.

He was preceded in death by his parents, brother, Russell G. Jones, brother-in-law Alfred C. Johnson, and sister-in-law Hazel Jones.

He leaves with loving memories, one daughter, Wanda Walker (William); three grandchildren, Bryan, DeVante and Marcus Walker; one great-granddaughter, Juliet Elizabeth Walker; four sisters, Mary Elizabeth Johnson, Laura Isabella Bowie, Helen Marie Jones, and Mildred Diane Nick (Rupert); one brother, Earl Arthur Jones (Patricia); a host of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, other relatives, and friends; and a special relationship with Lynnette Gray, Tawanda Jones Reid, and Dion Gray.
