Alton GRANT JONES

Posted at 10:02am
I am Mr. Floyd Lewis’s nephew Alton Jones on his wife’s Maggie Bea Lewis (Pannell) family side, the son of her sister Nannie Mae Jones (Pannell). Before I tell my story with Uncle Floyd, I learned he met “TRUE LOVE,” at an ice cream store in his wife and today is the happiest man laughing with her in heaven as their home still mirrors Aunt Maggie’s image after her passing at age 62. After I retired from the military in 2002 as an infantryman, my immediate family organized our family reunion to learn our history as he provided photos and info for reunion book. The reunion was the greatest because my mother, her brother and Uncle Floyd attended and was the only family alive I believe as he made me proud by thanking me for a great time. Thereafter, I visited Uncle Floyd regularly, and I refreshed his memory and told him he and his wife was the only family outside our family that I remembered visiting our family weekly and feeling “happiness,” he was always glued to Aunt Maggie’s side and that I would support him the rest of his life, if I out live him. I felt honored every moment with Uncle Floyd. I learned the he was an infantryman in the army too. He told me one of his military services stories that while his brother and him was selected to go to Korea, as their names were called his brother and others boarded for Korea and his name was not called, he said he was scared to death and couldn’t remember doing nothing wrong thereafter, he was told he would be left behind to guide others to departure. He said he was so happy. I told him they noticed good about him. Uncle Floyd always read a lot of mail, and I told him that would keep his mind in use. He was always getting mail from businesses he supported and they would always say he had won money in writing and it really looked real and he would always call and tell me this time they coming man and me coming over at less once a month and we would seat for 3 hours, I just couldn’t tell him no. He did get a check once in the mail and it looked good to me so he asked me to take him to the bank to cash it and the bank cashed it and we learned later the check was not real. I did not care if he said go, we went. I took him to several medical, and hair cutting appointments. We went fishing, I took him to his church and see the Christmas lights in Virginia Beach. It was a joy being with him as I began to help him around the house. His hot water busted about a year and a half and I noticed his floor in the hall was higher as I repaired the bathroom floor. He paid a contractor to patch the floor before I asked him did, he have insurance. He said yes but thought he could only use the insurance if his home burned down. I contacted the insurance company and mold was found under the house and the insurance company spent over $70,000.00 repairing his $7,500.00 home he purchased in 1958 while he stayed in the hotel for nearly a year. The last time I say Uncle Floyd was at the start of the Coronavirus when I purchased some medication for his bones as he wanted to a haircut. I told him that he had to stay in and not go out and for him to enjoy himself as I hanged and kissed him and told him I love him. He said I love you too, Alton. Recently my wife told me that she saw Sidney’s name on my phone when I wakeup from my nap. I texted him saying that I did not call because I did not want to hear no bad news. I then texted him again asking was he ok. Sidney texted back saying no. I felt some wrong and waited a moment and called and said Uncle Floyd pasted. Uncle Floyd had already planned his death as he told me during our meetings. That is the kind of man he was. The greatest man I have ever been around. He is a treasure. Rest in Peace Uncle Floyd. Love you! ALTON G. JONES
