On March 31, 1929, God blew life into the soul of Robert C. Jones. The late Quincy Jones-Leonard and the late Henry Jones were blessed with their first born, a son! God had bestowed upon them one of His greatest challenges, raising a child. They took on this task and reaped what they had sewn. RC became a man of courage, strength and endurance. His love knew no boundaries and his dedication was endless. He had his own quiet way of praising and thanking God, but rest assured his relationship with our Lord was well established. RC, as we affectionately call him, was educated in the Pansey, AL school system but he learned life's greatest lessons through conquering his many conquests of life. He was always quick to learn and sought to take advantage of all life had to offer. Turning fifteen was merely the beginning of many accomplishments for him, when he bought his first car. At the young age of sixteen, RC bought his first property. He was very proud of these accomplishment and this laid the blueprint for a very productive future. RC sought a better way of life from the inequalities most blacks were suffering at that time. He left Alabama in search of more opportunities and finally made Buffalo, NY his home. There he found work at Twin Car Wash, Kenmore, NY, western New York's first automatic Car Wash. Taking his work seriously he quickly became the first black manager, marking another graet accomplishment in his life. July 27, 1963 RC married his soulmate, Leola Drayton. Together they raised a family and set the foundation from which love and caring was built. He devoted his life to his family and promised to love, protect and direct them forever. He made numerous sacrifices so that his family would never suffer many of life's cruelest realities. Ater many years of hardwork and dedication RC retired from NFTA. He had also served in polical positions and was very involed in the neighborhood block club. He loved people and enjoyed giving and directing the young people. In the late afternoon Sunday, Feb. 4, 2007, RC quietly slipped away. There was no goodbye but his silence spoke a thousand words. As his loving wife sat by his earthly body, his soul had begun the descent to heaven. There he was greeted by those who had left before him and the angels led their walk around heaven!
