SHELLMAN BLUFF– Joseph A. “Joey” Jones, 61, died Tuesday, September 14, 2021, after a short illness.

Born in Savannah, he grew up in Winder, moving to Shellman Bluff in 1998 where he owned and operated Bluff Heating and Air, after working in the field in Winder for many years prior. An outdoorsman, he loved fishing at the coast and hunting whenever he could.

Above all, he was a loving husband, brother and friend, who enjoyed time with his family. An honest, businessman, he will be greatly missed at the bluff. Although he never had children of his own, he was a mentor to his nieces and nephews, whom he considered his own. He was Baptist by faith and preceded in death by his wife, Brenda Duncan Jones.
