Obituary for Dewey C. "Bubby" Jones

Dewey Clyde Jones (a.k.a. “Bubby”), born 1954 on the 10th day of June in Ravenna, Ohio was beckoned to his Heavenly abode in dignity and grace in 2018 on the 17th day of December to be reunited with his father Dewey Jones of Ravenna, Ohio; and his beloved mother, Ruth Jones of Kent, Ohio. Dewey left behind his lifelong wife and eternal love, Diane Marie (Hall) Jones, and their three children, Brian Allan Jones of North Jackson, Ohio; Lisa Louise Jones of Randolph, Ohio; and Jesse Ray Jones of Alliance, Ohio: ages 43, 39, and 34, respectively. Also of those whom he will be missed are his siblings: Perry Jones of Anniston, Alabama; Sharon Jones (a.k.a. “Angel") of Ravenna, Ohio; Sherry (Jones) Durham of Brimfield, Ohio; and Rosemary (Jones) Wilfong of Akron, Ohio.

He will be sorely missed, and warmly remembered.


Eulogy

For a Loving Father of Three

To his son, a father is the ultimate archetype. The pinnacle of what philosophy guides him throughout the wonderous beauty that is life. The strength, and foundation in tumultuous times. The warmth in love and reassurance when all is uncertain. To his daughter, a father is the great protector. The very man whose attributes of chivalry, and softness of heart, she will someday hold as testimony to merit her future husband. For his children, a father gives himself completely. Their lives lived vicariously by his example, following the path he paved to prosperity, and fulfillment. Love and serenity. A love inherited, and passed forth to generations infinitum.

“The Balance,”
by the Moody Blues

After he had journeyed,
And his feet were sore,
And he was tired,
He came upon an orange grove
And he rested.

And he lay in the cool,
And while he rested,
He took to himself an orange
And tasted it,
And it was good.

And he felt the earth to his spine,
And he asked,
And he saw the tree above him,
And the stars,
And the veins in the leaf,
And the light,
And the balance.

And he saw magnificent perfection,
Whereon he thought of himself in balance,
And he knew he was.

Just open your eyes, and realize,
The way it's always been.
Just open your mind and you will find
The way it's always been.
Just open your heart and that's a start

And he thought of those he angered,
For he was not a violent man,
And he thought of those he hurt
For he was not a cruel man
And he thought of those he frightened
For he was not a evil man,

And he understood.
He understood himself.
Upon this
He saw that when he was of anger
Or knew hurt
Or felt fear,
It was because he was not understanding.
And he learned, compassion.

And with his eye of compassion
He saw his enemies
Like unto himself,
And he learned love.
Then, he was answered.

Just open your eyes, and realize,
The way it's always been.
Just open your mind and you will find
The way it's always been.
Just open your heart and that's a start

Just open your eyes, and realize,
The way it's always been.
Just open your mind and you will find
The way it's always been.
Just open your heart and that's a start
