Dennis Keith Jones was born March 20, 1958 in Bainbridge, Georgia. His parents, Dee Lindley Jones and Emma Jo Mims Jones, have preceded him in death. Dennis worked in different areas of public safety. He was a Bainbridge police officer and, later, a probation officer. Dennis was a member of Norlina Baptist Church in Norlina, North Carolina. He loved his Lord and church. From Sunday School teacher to chairman of deacons, he was dedicated to serve. Dennis loved the outdoors. He enjoyed hunting and, especially, fishing. His children and grandchildren were his heart. Dennis was most happy sharing the outside and hunting and fishing with his children and their children. Scuba diving was a passion of his. He taught classes so others could learn to love scuba diving as he did. A “collector”, he would take his metal detector and head out to look for treasure. Dennis Keith Jones will be deeply missed by his many friends and the family he loved so very much.
