Harold Massie Jones ’30

Published in Mar. 6, 1991, issue

HAROLD DIED after a lengthy illness Sept. 9, 1990, in Richmond, Va. He had attended major reunions consistently and had reservations for our 60th but had to cancel. At Princeton Harold was a member of the varsity crew sophomore and junior years, sang with the Glee Club, and belonged to Cap and Gown.

After graduation he returned to his home town of Red Star, Fayette Cry., W.V., and joined the Amherst Fuel Co., a family business. This was a lifetime career, with the early years spent in Charleston and later years in Richmond as a V.P. and director of the company.

From 1942 to 1945 Harold was a captain in the U.S. Army Quartermaster Corps and in the same period married Jane, Colemari, who survives. Harald and Jane were active in the Richmond community and church, with a special emphasis on the Va. Home for Boys, where Harold was on the Board of Governors.

Survivors also include a son, Harold Massie Jones Jr.; a daughter, Katherine Taliaferro Jones; a stepdaughter, Jane Sloan Casini; three stepsons, James Turner Sloan III, John Williams Sloan, and Claude Coleman Sloan. To all these and his many friends, the Class sends sincere condolences.
