September 19, 1935 - May 17, 2018
No farewell words were spoken, no time to say good bye, you were gone before we knew it, and only God knows why…..Charles K. Jones, 82, of North Orwell, Pa passed away suddenly on Thursday, May 17, 2018 at his home. Charlie, as he was affectionately known by his family and friends was born on September 19, 1935 in Sayre, Pa a son of the late Edward LeRoy and Elizabeth M. (Harrington) Jones. He was a graduate of the Rome High School Class of 1953. Following graduation, Charlie went to work at Westinghouse his work there was brief as he decided it would be better to travel the country sides visiting with area farmers and hauled milk for Crowley's as owner/operator of EL & CK Jones & Son. On March 19, 1960 a windy and frosty day, he married Mary Sackett ~ together they raised four daughters who were the apple of his eye. In 1999, following forty-two years of hauling milk Charlie retired ~ the friendships and the stories he shared over the years remain with us. Charlie was a member of the Rome United Methodist Church and the North Orwell Union Church. Charlie was a dedicated member of the Roman Lodge #418 F & AM Masonic Lodge in Rome, Pa where he served as Pastor Patron ~ he was just recognized for his sixty year membership in March. In addition he also served as Worthy Patron for Rome Chapter of Order of Eastern Star No. 26. Charlie was a friend to many, he could approach a stranger and soon following their visit they would be friends. His infectious smile and caring ways will be greatly missed by his family. He enjoyed walking, hiking and was a volunteer at the Bradford County Manor although his greatest love was being surrounded by his family. Charlie will be greatly missed by his loving wife of 58 years, Mary (Sackett) Jones; his daughters and sons-in-law: Robin and Fred Wiginton, Kalesta and Marc Retter, Carlyn and Patrick Murphy, Shelly and Todd Raymond.
