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 70s, 80s, and early 90s. He mostly competed in the majors, but he told me he won the Tennessee Closed Tournament in the 80s or early 90s.  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 2 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.  Hillous Jones' Obiturary
