Reginald Tyrone Jones was born April 2, 1957 in Marysville, California to the late Robert Eugene Jones, Sr. and the late Mary Ellen Givens Jones Bynes who departed seven months ago. Reggie accepted Christ a very early age at St. Paul A.M.E. Church 506 E. Harrison Street where he enjoyed his role ushering and greeting members and guest with his beautiful charismatic warm smile. Reggie attended St. Peter Claver School and Hillsborough County Public Schools. Reggie had several employers but the ones that gave him the most joy were Tampa General Hospital as an Orderly and Ray Williams Funeral home along with several other funeral homes within the community was his pride and joy! Reggie loved getting dressed up in his suit to go an assist with whatever the task may have been as long he was a part of the funeral team. Reggie was a simple man who didn't need much. A few things he loved to do were always smiling in a pretty woman's face and asking, how you doing, and the next question was what's your number? Watching his favorite TV programs, enjoying his electronics, putting together gadgets, and going together with Mom and friends to the Casino. But most of all, hanging out with his family and friends. Reggie was preceded in death by his parents, Robert Eugene Jones and Mary Ellen Givens-Jones Bynes, grandparents, Lewis (Corene) Jones, Garfield J. Givens (Frances Marie Bowles Givens-Camps), uncles; Alfred Givens, James Givens and Samuel Givens; aunts; Frances Davis and Lee O. Mastin. Reggie leaves fond memories with his sister, Kim Jones Johnson (Derrek) and brother, Robert Eugene Jones, II of Houston, Texas. The last aunt living Elizabeth Bramble of Poughkeepsie, New York; Harold Givens of Accokeek, Maryland like an uncle; four loving and kind nephews, Rojaughn Jones of Tampa, Derrek Kimarr (Krystal) Johnson of Houston, TX, Demarr Kaeron Johnson of Houston, TX. and Josiah Jones of Tampa, Fl.; one great-niece, Za'Haira Skyee Johnson and great nephew, Rojaughn Jones, Jr.; special friends, Dorothy and Dannean McDaniel, Rev. Karl (Tonna) Brown, Ms. Alva Richard; and a host of other relatives and friends. The visitation will be on Wednesday, February 12th from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. at New Saint Paul African Methodist Episcopal. The family and friends are asked to meet at the church on Wednesday for the service.
