He was the owner of Jones Painting Company for more than fifty years and worked alongside his brothers painting many churches in Savannah, perhaps most notably The Cathedral Basilica of St. John the Baptist. People often said Billy painted half of Savannah. He was passionate about the work that he achieved over the years and valued the relationships that were formed in the course of his work. He was a member of Calvary Baptist Church before joining Burkhalter Baptist Church. In his younger days he was an avid fisherman and hunter. Billy was always up for an adventure and loved being with his grandsons. He celebrated his 79th birthday by going skydiving with his grandsons. In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his brothers, Virgil Jr., Bobby, Charles, Jackie, Freddie and Larry Jones and his loving dog, Buddy. Surviving to cherish his memory are his wife, Mary Frances Peavy Jones; daughters, Kathy Jones (Marcia McManus) and Beth Thomas (Mitchell); grandchildren, Logan (Caroline), Ryan, and Austin (Baylee) Thomas and his fur babies, Sophie and Twerp.
