"The Choice of More Okmulgee Area Families"


Albert Jones

Albert (Junior) Jones went to be with his Lord, Saturday, November 17th at 6:20 A.M. at his daughter’s home in Beggs. He was born February 20, 1928 in his home in Okmulgee, one block from where he resided with the love of his life, his wife of 62 years, Doris. Albert spent his childhood in the family business Jones Auto Garage sweeping the floor and hauling coal for the pot belly stove where so many Okmulgeans sat around telling stories as there cars were being repaired. Albert was an avid motorcycle rider and enthusiast and became an antique car collector, especially Studebakers. Albert married the love of his life July 14, 1945. Doris was the daughter of Carl A. and Ida Campbell whom he loved so dearly. Albert went into business with his Dad at Jones Auto Garage and also worked nights driving for Buchanan Funeral Home in his early-married life. He then took a second job at McClendon’s Meadow View Dairy where he was a milk transporter for years with them until they sold to Carnation. When Albert’s Dad became ill, he took over ownership of Jones Garage and changed the name to Bear Wheel Alignment. He later retired from the auto repair and bought the portable building company, Economy Storage and Building Company, where he was building and selling storage buildings up to the day he had his heart attack, July 5, 2007. Albert attributed his carpentry skills to his father-in-law who was also his mentor, Carl A. Campbell. Albert was a member of New Beginnings Church and loved his Pastors Raymond and Carolyn Doke. Albert is survived by his loving wife of 62 years Doris E. Jones, one daughter; Linda J. Mason Bond of Beggs, two sons; George M. Jones and Rex A. Jones and wife Lori, both of Okmulgee, one brother; David C. Jones and wife Carolyn of Okmulgee, five granddaughters; Kelli S. Jones of Oklahoma City, Natalie L. Jones, Jenna L. Jones, Ashley N. Jones, and Chelsea L. Jones all of Okmulgee, one great granddaughter; Alexis Lilliana (Jones) McCall, two nieces; Heather Harley of Tulsa and Mary C. Heiserman of Manvel, Texas, and one nephew; Dale A. Campbell of Austin, Texas. Albert was preceded in death by his father Albert W. Jones Sr. and mother Farrel Jones. Friends may visit the funeral home on Monday from 9-8 P.M. Services are under the direction of McClendon-Winters Funeral Home and will be held Tuesday, November 20, 2007, at 10:00 A.M. at the New Beginnings Church with interment following at the Okmulgee Cemetery.
