Maurice Jones

Maurice Jones, age 65, passed away peacefully with his wife by his side on Sunday, December 2, 2018 at Homeview Health & Rehabilitation Center in Franklin. He was a resident of Morgantown.
Maurice was born July 30, 1953, in Salem, to the late Bev and Hattie Mae (Bailey) Jones. He was a 1971 graduate of West Washington High School in Cambellsburg. Maurice retired this past February from Amtrak in Beech Grove after 11 years of service. He was also the owner and operator of M&C Trucking for 12 years.
Maurice loved life, family and friends. He always had a smile and words of encouragement for anyone who was feeling low. Maurice was a wonderful husband, friend, father and pawpaw. He loved going to church, working on cars and keeping everything in order.
He was caring, even at death, to make sure everything was done at home. Most of all he enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren.
