Mr. Jones died peacefully on Thursday, January 9, 2020. Born in Alameda, CA, he was a son of the late John Wesley Jones Jr. and Margaret Pitts Jones. B J, as he was affectionately known by his family and friends, made friends with everyone he came in contact with. He always went out of his way to help anyone who needed it. He was truly one-of-a-kind with more stories than anyone can imagine. B J came in contact with a lot of young people he called his kids. At the age of 11, B J was hired by Doc Hooker to be a curb hop at Ruth's Drive-In. In 1982, B J and his brother-in-law, Jimmy, started a racing team called J & J Racing and had seventeen successful years with many wins at Hartsville-Darlington Speedway, Timmonsville and Sumter. B J was the best car salesman in town. If anyone needed a car, B J was the man. He worked at various car dealerships over the years including Cadell Carter, Conway Chrysler-Jeep- Dodge, Raceway Chevrolet, Raceway Ford, and mostly recently Gardner Auto Sales. In 2015, after quadruple by-pass, he was given his own personal parking spot by John Isgett at Raceway Ford. B J loved going to church. He and Anne enjoyed listening to the word of God from Pastor Jim Murray at Forest Hills Independent Baptist Church. Surviving are the love of his life for over 50 years, Anne J. Jones of Hartsville, SC; daughter, Jeni (Jimmy) Johnson of Hartsville, SC; grandchildren, Miranda Shoemake, Alex Shoemake; brothers, Wayne (Dawn) Jones of Florence, SC, Earl (Mary) Jones of TN; sister, Gloria (David) Shoemake of Hartsville, SC; and a lot of treasured memories with many nieces and nephews. Serving as pallbearers will be Chris Witherspoon, Brantley Witherspoon, Carroll Gainey, Darrell Gainey, Scott Byrd, Travis Stewart, Cliff Jones, and Zeus.
