Charles David Jones Sr., 70, of Provencal, entered his heavenly home Sunday, March 1, 2020.  Charles was born Feb. 21, 1950, in Bellwood to Kenneth Audie and Ethel Irene Jones.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Kenneth and Irene Jones; and a brother, Gerald Jones.

Left to honor his life are his wife of 45 years, Carolyn Jones; daughter, Charlene Womack and husband Chris of Provencal; two sons, Charles “Bubba” Jones Jr. and wife Amanda of Many and Daniel Jones and wife Katie of Provencal; eight grandchildren, Trey, Noah, Autumn, Audie Ann, Collin, Mallory, Cooper and Cohen; and two sisters, Ann Toms of Saline and Shirley Marlar of Corinth, Miss.

Charles was a family man.  He would travel any length to watch his kids and grandkids play sports or just to be a part of whatever activity they had going on.  Charles was a hard worker and a great provider but most importantly was a Christian man.  Charles had a profound knowledge of the scriptures and lived out the wisdom he gained from reading his Bible.  Although he enjoyed the simple things in life, he leaves behind a legacy that is far more valuable than anything this world can offer.  Although his passing will leave an empty place in our hearts, we know one day we will be reunited with him in heaven.
