Mass of a Christian Burial
Obituary of Harold Jones
Harold “Harry” Jones, 78, a resident of Greenwich passed away suddenly Thursday, June 14, 2018 at home.
Harry was loved by everyone he met. He was so gregarious, generous, and funny. Harry was the top salesman for Utica Boiler until he retired.
Harry loved his home church St. Joseph’s in Greenwich and father Martin Fisher as well as its parishioners.
Harry never feared death, he knew that he would be reunited with his beloved brother, Terry and his adored mother, Jean. They are now together again in the hands of God.
Harry is survived by his beloved wife, Carol Leighton Jones, who has said that, “Harry was the most intelligent and most interesting person she had ever met, he would finish a book every two days, his knowledge about literature, art, music, theater, politics, history and New York City, were passions we shared”.
Harry is also survived by his sister Roz and nephew, John; sister Cele; niece, Apple and her husband Anthony, and their children, Leo and Ramona, of whom Harry was so proud. Every Sunday after mass, Harry would bring them donuts which would lead to great affection, conversations and laughter.
He is also survived by his step-daughters Brooke Vincent and Lauren Leighton, who agreed that “Harry was so COOL”. Who else would drive a lime green mustang convertible with white-wall tires? He was also the craziest dancer on the floor, he introduced them to Ella Fitzgerald, The Rolling Stones, etc.
Harry and his grandchildren, Tommy, Jameson, and Liliana had a mutual love affair. What other grandfather would jump out of trees to float down the Battenkill River or get them shrieking with laughter as “Lobsterman” jumped out of closets and showers.
A mass of a Christian burial will be celebrated at 9am Saturday, June 23, 2018 at St. Joseph’s Church, Bleecker St, Greenwich, NY, 12834 with the Rev. Martin Fisher officiating. Following mass Harry will be laid to rest in St. Joseph’s Cemetery in Greenwich.
After the burial family and friends are invited to St. Joseph’s Church hall for a reception.
In lieu of flowers donations in Harry’s name may be made to a charity of ones choosing.
