05/19/1947 - 03/29/2024

Jimmy Jones, age 76, passed away in his home, on March 29, 2024. He was born in Bertie County, North Carolina to the late Jesse and Vernie Jones. He served his country proudly in the United States Navy. Jimmy was a retired electrician with Weathermakers and Eagle Electric. Jimmy was also an avid hunter.

Jimmy was preceded in death by his wife Linda Desormeaux Jones (May 2, 2015), by his brothers Frank, David and his sister Sarah.

Left to cherish Jimmy’s memory are his sons James “Howie” and Kevin (wife Jennifer), two granddaughters; Cheyenne and Sierra Jones, brother; Jesse, and sister; Katie and her husband Bill.

Jimmy was a simple man with a huge heart. He loved his family dearly. He and Linda were married from an early age and are once again united. His simple pleasures in life were hunting and tinkering in his man cave where he had anything you could think of. His lawn was always well kept and his cars were immaculate. He had pride and it was apparent. Later in life some of his small joys included his cup of coffee, westerns, classic TV shows and game shows, along with many scientific programs and wildlife documentaries.

Currently, at this time there are no services scheduled to take place.

Altmeyer Funeral Home and Cremations, Southside Chapel is both humbled and honored to serve the Jones family during this difficult time.
