Notes
a. Note:   Fentress Co, TN marriage record 24 May 1963. Obituary in The Fentress Courier 13 Nov 2013 -- Leamon R. Duffield “Duck” Jones, age 72, passed away on Friday, November 1, 2013 peacefully in his sleep. Mr. Jones was born in Cooperative, Kentucky on August 21, 1941 to Dewey and Mary Jones(nee Miller). He was a U.S. Army veteran who was stationed in several locations throughout his military career, but will be remembered most for his dedication and service through two tours in Vietnam.In 1963 Leamon met the love of his entire life, Virgie Lee Cooper in Jamestown, TN. They celebrated 50 years of loving marriage this year on May 24, 2013. Leamon and Virgie were blessed with three children, Jeffery, Angela and Kimberly. Sadly, when Jeffery passed away at 2 1/2 years old, Leamon moved his young wife to Medway, OH to work for General Motors Corp. He celebrated a 30 year career with a retirement ceremony in 1998. Leamon was an extremely loving and devoted father. His daughters were his pride and joy and although he worked very hard, nights, weekends and overtime to provide for his family, he never complained nor uttered a harsh word. His passing has left a void that will never be filled and his love for his daughters will always be felt. He was a humorous man who loved to laugh and tell jokes. In his younger years, Leamon enjoyed many pastimes such as bowling, gardening and fishing. He could talk fishing for hours and loved the Tennesse Volunteers. Leamon’s passion in life was his grandchildren, Courtney and Brandon, with whom he shared a very close bond. He loved spending hours just chatting with them, telling stories of his childhood and of his life. He will be immeasurably missed by them and will never be forgotten. He was looking forward to becoming a great-grandpa in February 2014. Mr. Jones is survived by wife, Virgie L. Jones (nee Cooper) of Spring Valley, OH; daughters, Angela Blasioli Russell and Kimberly Jones; four grandchildren, Courtney Blasioli and Alex Place, Brandon Blasioli and Brittany Brooks; three step-grandchildren, Brien, Michael and Kailey Russell; a future great-grandson, Gage Orion Place; sister, Juanita Adkins (Danny); brothers, Robie Jones (Pat), Eugene Jones (Jackie) and Don Jones; brothers-in-law, Roy Cooper (Norma), Millard Waters (Hallie), Thurman Young (Christine); special friends, Jerry Domi, Slim, William Locker and Donnie Russell, Sr.; and dozens of other family including nieces, nephews, and cousins, and finally his special family pets, Candy and Funny Face.
