Mr. Robert Thaddeus “Bob” Jones was born in New York, New York, on January 11, 1938. He departed this life at his home on May 11, 2019, at which time he moved on to be with his beloved wife, Geneva T. Jones and his two daughters, Carlotta Jones and Baby Antoinette Jones.

His legacy of life, love and compassion did not end at the time of his death but will live on with his family and his lifetime of accomplishments. Mr. Jones was a strong- willed person who believed that “the children are our future” and we should do everything in our power to work with and prepare them for what lies ahead. He demonstrated his belief in his early life by becoming a Cub Scout/Boy Scout leader and becoming an educator with Greenville County School District for 38-plus years serving as Teacher, Counselor and Principal. He also started the first debate team at Bryson High School. He simultaneously served with the Greenville County Sheriff’s Department, and was Commissioner of Parker Fire District. He was a board member of the Salvation Army and Claflin University. In 1981, he became a State Constable and remained for 38 years until his demise. He was an avid supporter and member of the PSLEOA (Palmetto State Law Enforcement Officers Association) and was a loyal member of the Masonic Order. Mr. Jones was a graduate of Claflin University and went on to receive his masters degree. Education was at the forefront of his mind and he used his knowledge to educate our young men and women, and encourage them to be the best they could be.

Left to cherish his memory are his son, Terry (Chrystel) Jones of Piedmont, SC; three grandchildren, Danielle (Harvey) Spencer of Fort Mill, SC, Teyetta Jones and Correll “Corey” Jones both of Greenville, SC; four great-grandchildren, Marques Jones of Greenville, SC, Harvey Spencer, Jr., Daniel Spencer and Denise Spencer, all of Fort Mill, SC; also left to cherish his memory are two sisters-in-law, Juanita Mints of Bowman, SC and Josephine Scarboroh of Brooklyn, NY; two brothers-in-law, David (Evelyn) Thomas of Elloree, SC and Jacob (Blanch) Thomas, Jr., both of Bowman, SC; extended granddaughter, Lenna Blake; special friend and caregiver, Minister Barbara (Lonnie) Blake; nieces; nephews; and a host of other family and friends.

Mr. Jones gave me the opportunity to teach at Alexander back in 1991. He took a chance with me when he saw a young, inexperienced substitute teacher, and I ended up working for him for 5 years. He was more like a father-figure to me than a boss! He was so gentle yet had a commanding presence. I respected him so much. I think of him often and finally looked him up. So sorry to hear of his passing but know that he is healed and happy where he is. May God bless his family.
