Jul 29, 1926 Cache, Comanche Co. OK [military stone has birth as Jul 26, 1926]
Feb 1, 1991

Charlie "Everett" Jones was born July 29, 1926 in Cache, OK, the 14th child of William Isiah and Lenora Luvicie "Nora" Jones.
Everett was in the Navy during World War II, earning a WWII Victory Medal, Asiatic-Pacific Campain Medal and the Phillippine Liberation Campaign Ribbon.
On Jan 6, 1946, he married Dorothy Lee Barfield, daughter of Jess Edward Barfield and Zonie Lee (McCarty) Barfield. Everett & Dorothy had 5 boys and 1 girl.
Everett was a farmer, carpenter, cattleman, truck driver, and anything else available , doing whatever was needed to support his family.
With lots of practice on nieces and nephews (who all thought he was wonderful), Everett was also a wonderful father and grandfather. He loved all children and entertained us endlessly by wiggling his ears, a feat I've never seen anyone else do.
Unfortunately, a melanoma grew on one of those amazing ears. His ear was removed to try and stop the melanoma growth. The small children were then even more amazed when he took off his prosthetic ear - they always tried to take theirs off too and pulled repeatedly until their ears must have been sore.
He fought valiantly but the melanoma metastasized to his brain and he lost the battle Feb. 1, 1991.
Everett was preceded in death by his parents, 9 siblings and 1 grandchild. [courtesy of Shirley Jones (Maclean)]
