ELDER FREDDY EARL JONES, {60} was born May 08, 1957 and departed this life Wednesday, October 03, 2017. Freddy was the son of Samuel and Edna Smith.

At a very early age, Freddy went to live with his grandparents, Dozier and Geneva Jones, in Boyds, MD. He was educated in the public school system in Maryland. Under the care of Dozier and Geneva, Freddy became acquainted with life on the farm. He learned early what the term “the sweat of your brow meant.” His strong work ethic lead him to many rewarding accomplishments. He ran a successful floor care business and became known for his masterfull skills in floor finishing.

Along the way he developed a love for cooking, specifcally grilling. His techniques and secret seasonings caused people from all across the county to fall in love with his barbeque.

After many years of running, Fred accepted the Lord as his personal Savior. In a very short time, he recognized the call for ministry on his life and was ordained under Pastors Woodrow and Dorothy Jones. Fred was passionate about the word. He could preach, pray, and sing. It was not uncommon for him to be heard going forth in worship or dancing for the Lord. Freddy lead a full life and he will surely be missed.
