Dead Man Chooses New James Bond Movie Over Pointless Flowers In Obituary

If John E. “Jack” Jones of Glenside, Pennsylvania, was still alive, he’d probably call Sportsradio 94WIP to scream about how the Eagles have NO SHOT against the Cowgirls tonight, and then I’d buy him a drink. Scotch, preferably. Why? Because the late Mr. Jones knew that flowers are a dumb and depressing thing to send to the family of the deceased, so he had a better idea: if you want to honor my legacy, go see Skyfall.

John E. “Jack” Jones of Glenside died Saturday, Nov. 3, 2012. He was 64.

He was the son of Bernadette (Frederick) of Plattsburgh, N.Y.; brother of Dorothy Griffin, David Jones (Susan) and Deborah Styer. He also is survived by his niece, Christina Hayslip (Brandon); and his cousin, Nancy Davidson.

Jack enjoyed cars and Indy car racing, and was great movie trivia buff.

He was a veteran of the U.S. Navy, serving from 1969 to 1973.

Funeral services and interment will be held privately.

In lieu of flowers and in his honor, go see the new James Bond movie. (Via)
