Obituary for Herbert W. Jones, Sr.
Mr. Herbert “Herly” Wallace Jones Sr. peacefully entered eternal rest on Thursday, March 17, 2022 at St. Mary’s Hospital, Richmond, Virginia. He was born on May 22, 1941 to the late Freeman Jones and Pauline Oliver. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his siblings: Sammy Jones, Willie Jones, Clinton Jones, James Jones, Johnny Jones, Freeman Jones, Leola West , Louise Williams and Lillian Bryant.

Herbert was baptized and became a member of Fourth Mt. Zion Baptist Church at an early age. He was educated in Nottoway County public school through eighth grade and left school to go to work to help provide for his siblings.

Herbert had an entrepreneurial spirit. He was a Self-Employed Logger and Homesteader for over half of his life in Crewe, Virginia. He operated his Home Improvement business in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for a number of years . He was an avid collector, always seeking hidden treasures.

He thoroughly enjoyed eating, spending time with his family, fishing, hunting (his dogs), gardening (single row, hill method, rototilling) and tinkering on his things with wheels.
