Asbury Scott (Scotty) Jones, Jr. entered into eternal peace with his wife Peggy by his side on Friday, February 23, 2018 at 4:17 am at Hospice Family Center in Huntsville, Alabama.
Scotty was born on February 14, 1941 in Tuscumbia, AL and lived his entire life in Colbert County. He graduated from Florence State, worked at Ford Motor Company until its closing in 1982, and then worked at Norfolk Southern until his retirement. He met his wife Peggy at church, and together they raised 3 children. He had a passion for music; he was a member of the traveling quartet Believers in Christ in the 70s. Until his passing, he was a member of Faith Church in Florence, AL, as well as the music minister at Ford City Baptist Church, where his love for our Lord was evident through his beautiful piano playing and singing. He was beloved by all who knew him for his devotion to Christ and to his family. He never met a stranger and was always there to help those in need.
Scotty leaves his loving memories to be cherished by Peggy, his wife of 49 years, daughters Felicia Jones and Phyllis (Mark) Kimbrough, son Bryan (Dawn) Jones, sister Martha (Steve) Anderson, granddaughters Chelsie Marlar, Kristi Marlar Hamm, Megan Jones, and Allie Jones, grandson Chandler Kimbrough, and many loving extended family members.
