John Edward Jones, a resident of Chickasaw, Alabama, passed away Friday, May 24, 2019. He was 70 years old. John made the most out of life. He enjoyed fixing up cars and selling them, and worked on the dairy farm for many years. He loved to be outdoors and sit on his porch to watch the traffic go by. John was a master at bartering. He would always collect aluminum cans to sell and was always willing to make a trade. John spent his life laughing and enjoying life with his family and friends. He laughed at adversity and was never afraid of any challenges thrown his way. He was forever 21 and always ran the show!
