Clevon Andrew Jones passed away peacefully on December 31, 2020 at 7:51 pm at Tidal HealthCare at PRMC with his son and niece by his side.
Often called “Doc” by family and friends, he was born in East New Market, Maryland on August 31, 1941 to the late Marshall Jones and Eunice Lenora Jones.
His education was acquired through the schools of Dorchester County, Maryland, where he graduated from Mace’s Lane High School in the “Class of 1959.” Doc entered the United States Navy where he served four years and was honorably discharged.
Doc married the late Paulette Johnson Jones on October 31, 1972 and from their union, one son, Junie, was born. Doc and Paulette were married for forty-eight (48) years until her death in December 2017.
He was known to be a hard worker and often worked seven days a week. Doc could be found many days after work in his truck catching a nap. He loved his family and would sometimes bring them things from his garden. Doc could be found in past years fishing with his brother Cliff. He loved his fish and could often be found at One Fish Two Fish getting a trout sandwich. Doc loved all his siblings as they had a special place in his heart.
Doc worked for J. Roland Dashiell for many years along with his uncle Oliver doing construction. Doc would often say, “Oliver ate my lunch” and this would be a topic almost every day. Doc later opened his own business, Jones Construction, which was in operation until his health failed.
