Booker T. Jones 64, passed away on May 4, 2013 under the care of Sparrow Hospice of Mid-Michigan with his wife, Ann and cousin at his side. Born in Mobile, Alabama, March 15, 1949 to the late James Jones and Beatrice Lockett. He moved to Pontiac, Michigan in 1971 and worked various small jobs until he began his employment with General Motors Corporation. He retired after 35 years of service.
He enjoyed cooking, reading his newspaper, conversing with people, sipping on his Crown Royal, and his fishing trip each year to Canada, and Kisha's mac and cheese.
