Bradford, TN

Funeral services for Mr. Carl Wayne Jones will be held at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, July 25, 2023, in the Hunt Funeral Home Chapel with burial to follow in Shiloh Cemetery. Visitation with the family will be on Tuesday from 10:30 a.m. until service time.  

Carl Wayne Jones of Bradford, TN left this earth unexpectedly on Friday, July 21, 2023, at the age of 69, at Henderson County Community Hospital. Wayne was born on March 13, 1954, as the middle of three children to Carl Eugene and Jeweldene Jones in Memphis, TN.

He worked much of his life as a printer for CharCon, World Color, and eventually for himself as owner of Skullbone Printing in Bradford, TN. Later in life, he drove a school bus for Bradford Special School District, delivering kids to and from school and many extracurricular activities. He was a proud fan of Bradford basketball, Union University basketball, and Tennessee football, and he could often be found fishing, hunting, and camping with his friends, children, and grandchildren. He faithfully attended several churches over his life including Shiloh Baptist Church of Bradford, TN, Northside Baptist and New Haven Baptist Churches of Milan, TN, and, at the time of his passing, he enjoyed listening to sermons from Pathways Church in Sevierville, TN. 

Wayne loved to chat and talked to just about anyone about nearly anything. He enjoyed hearing jokes and loved telling them even more. He seemed to be an encyclopedia of funny stories. Conversations with him always began and ended with a laugh or smile. He never met a stranger and spent much of his free time helping friends and neighbors with odd jobs like fixing boats and working on houses. He would help in any situation and make time even when he didn’t have it. To know Wayne was to love him. He was comfortable to be around and genuinely desired to be present with those he loved.

Those who remain to carry on his legacy and wisdom are his children David (Faine) Williams, Amanda (Joshua) Hall, Amy (Weston) Gentry, and Kaitlyn Jones, his grandchildren Hazel and Grayson Hall, Elijah and Carla Eve Gentry, his sisters Sherry Newsom and Debra Brown, and his loving partner Teresa Wilson.

Wayne is preceded in death by his parents Carl and Jeweldene Jones.
