Mr. Columbus Quincy Jones was born March 23, 1950, and he transitioned this earthly life on February 17, 2021. Quincy was the son of Malachi Jones, Sr. and Clara Bryant Jones. Quincy attended Garner Consolidated High School. From high school, he went on to join the United States Navy. Quincy was quiet, intuitive and perceptive. For those who really knew Quincy, you know he had a huge heart and cared deeply for others. He would give the shirt off his back. Quincy never got hung up on this worldly life of material things. Instead, he went by the beat of his own drum having a very keen sixth sense about people and about life. Quincy loved music and was a big fan of Otis Redding, and Candi Staton. He could dance, and in his younger days, Quincy would always get things hyped by showing the family his dance he coined “the RAM.” He also called himself “the RAM.”
Although Quincy struggled with alcohol addiction most of his life, he lived the last 20+ years of his life sober and alcohol free which is a testament to God’s deliverance, glory, and grace.
Quincy is survived by his son Patrick Lloyd and two daughters Dora Denise Jones (Nisey) and Itisha Morgan, his grandchildren and great grandchildren; his mother Clara Jones; his sisters Helen Daniels, Nina Jones, Beverly Craven; his brothers James Jones, Calvin Jones (Theresa) all of Raleigh, NC. His sister Marcia Jefferys (of Dallas, Texas). He is also survived by a large host of nieces, nephews, great and great-great nieces and nephews, an uncle, aunts, cousins, other relatives and friends. Quincy was preceded in death by his brothers Marvin Jones, Gregory Jones, Timothy Jones, and most recently, Malachi Jones, Jr.
In honor of Quincy’s and the family’s wishes, no visitation and no funeral service will be held.
