The Obituary for Mr. Harvey Golden Jones, Jr. (Lee County)


With extreme sadness, we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, and grandfather, Harvey Golden Jones, Jr. Harvey, 81, was an Auburn resident and member of Auburn United Methodist Church. His loving family was by his side.

Harvey was born on January 22, 1941, in Montgomery, AL, to the late Harvey Golden Jones, Sr., and Ann Coleman Jones. He graduated from Auburn University in 1964 with an art degree. His talent and creativity were illustrated in his career of 40 years in the Creative Advertising industry. He retired as Creative Advertising and Marketing Director at WestPoint Stevens.

Harvey is survived by his loving wife of 55 years, Sara Broughton Jones; his daughter, Heather Sims (Jody Corbitt); his son, Christopher Broughton Jones; and two grandchildren: Parker and Sarah Grace – all of whom he loved dearly. He is also survived by his uncle, Byron Coleman.

Harvey loved God and his family with all his heart, mind, and spirit until his last breath. He was honest, loyal, loving, and selfless, and he gave his heart and soul to his family and friends. On a sunny afternoon, you would find Harvey at the golf club, and on Saturday afternoons in the fall, he cheered on the Auburn Tigers.

A celebration of life and memorial will be held on Friday, October 21, 2022, beginning at noon. The memorial service will follow at 1 p.m. at the Auburn United Methodist Church, 137 South Gay St, Auburn, AL 36830.

In place of flowers, the family has asked donations to be made in Harvey’s memory to the Bethany House, 1171 Gatewood Drive, Building 100, Auburn, AL 36830, or to The CJD Foundation by visitingĀ
