LAFAYETTE — Mr.
Hillous Clay Jones, 392 Gabraith Lane, Lafayette, TN 37083-3423.
I am writing this to let you know that my brother
Hillous Jones passed away on November 11, 2011. He loved to play checkers
and competed in tournaments in several states during the 70’s, 80’s, and early
90’s. He mostly competed in the majors, but he told me he won the Tennessee
Closed Tournament in the 80’s or early 90’s. He was a lifetime member of
the ACF. Hillous Clay Jones was born August 10, 1934. He was 77
years, 3 months, 1 day old. He left behind his wife, two daughters, two
grandchildren (a boy and a girl), three brothers, and one sister. Hillous was
taken with a disease that mimics Parkinsons that gradually rendered him
immobile, and over the last 2½ years that he spent in a nursing home, he got
weaker. He got pneumonia and died in Macon General Hospital in Lafayette TN.,
with family by his bedside. Submitted by Clyde Jones.
