He is also survived by brothers; Bruce Jones (Nereida), Rick Jones (Wachara) and Robert Lee Jones Jr., his sisters; Joyce Fields and Wanda Jones, in-laws; Carroll Brown Sr., Edwina Brown, Carol Wiggins (Harold), Andre Brown (Sherene), Carl Brown (Diane), Terrence Brown (Doris), Carroll Brown (Tamu), Lynn Brown, Kimberly Taylor, Christopher Brown (Tanya), Kristal Harris (Reginald), best friend, Phil McFerrin and a host of nieces, nephews, friends and loved ones.
