Obituary for Rodney Wayne Jones

Rodney Wayne Jones was born on September 29, 1953 in Jackson, Tennessee. He was the third of five children, born to Marion Rogers Jones. Rodney loved his family more than anything. He always wanted to do for them although his health issues prevented him from doing so. As a child Rodney and his twin brother Roger were closer than friends. Rodney who was fifteen minutes older than his brother Roger took pride in riding his little brother on the handlebars of the only bicycle they owned. Rodney and his brother Roger always communicated well, even when arguing. Roger looked at his older brother as his hero. When they were young they even played in a band together with Rodney on the sax. They had lot of fun even though we didn't know he couldn't hear, because his right inner ear never formed. After leaving South Bend, Indiana Rodney resided in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for thirty years where he had many friends and was a big fan of the Green Bay Packers. Before reuniting with his brother in Denver, Co. in 2012. Rodney loved playing cards, listening to Blues and Gospel music, and talking with his twin brother Roger about his friends Thomas, Kelli and Mike. Rodney was a special needs adult who had a soft spot in his heart for people in wheelchairs and those who walked with a cane. He loved to see children and beautiful women.
He was member of Shorter AME Church before becoming a member of Shiloh Baptist Church in 2017. We find peace in knowing that he knew God and belonged to the same church as his brother.
Rodney Departed this earth on October 16, 2018, holding his brothers hand till his last breath. He leaves to cherish his memory, his twin brother Rodger Jones of Denver, CO, sisters Gloria Jones Harris of Cincinnati, Ohio, Zetha Jones Roundtree of Chicago, Illinois, and Gracious Jones of South Bend Indiana, and many nieces, nephew's family members and friends.
"I love the fact that his soul was always anchored in the Lord" –Roger
