Thomas Emery Jones, 63, Greensburg, KY (1959-2022)

Thomas Emery Jones passed away on September 13, 2022, at Taylor Regional Hospital. He was 63 years old.

There will be a Celebration of Life service to honor Tom to be announced at a later date.

Thomas Emery Jones was born on April 2, 1959, in Louisville, Kentucky. Tom graduated from Western Kentucky University in 1984 with a Bachelor of Science degree. Though he held various job titles in his lifetime, the title he most enjoyed was "Friend." Tom took great pleasure in helping friends and family whenever and however he could. There was never a task too small or too difficult. He loved to support those who needed help -whether with two legs or four. His wit and humorous way of looking at life enhanced the lives of those who knew him and loved him. His family and friends will miss him dearly, as will his beloved beagle, Barney. Barney was adored by Tom, and he remained for him a constant, loyal companion and source of great happiness.

Tom was preceded in death by his grandparents, Rev. V.A. Jones, and Elizabeth Lambirth Jones; and Elmer and Mae Wright Hedgespeth; and his parents Emery Earl Jones and Ava Hedgespeth Jones.

He is survived by his sister and brother-in-law, Ann Myra and Dick Druary of Houston, Texas; three aunts, Shelley Edwards Jones of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Peggy Moore Jones of Campbellsville, Kentucky and Betty Mullins Hedgespeth of Summersville, Kentucky; and many extended family members and friends.

The family has requested that donations can be made in his memory to Jaidas Paws Rescue, Inc., 3138 Palestine Road, Campbellsville, Kentucky 42718; or to the charity of your choice, those can also be made at the Foster-Toler-Curry Funeral Home.
