A “Home Going” celebration for Madison County Deputy Sheriff Marcus Jones was held Sunday, April 17, in the Van H. Priest Auditorium on the campus of North Florida Community College.
Deputy Jones died last Sunday at the age of 40.
He leaves a wife, four sons and a daughter. Friends, family and officers from Madison and surrounding counties filled the auditorium to standing room only.
Madison County Sheriff Ben Stewart told the audience that Marcus was “reliable” and he could always count on him.
At the graveside service in the Oakridge Cemetery, in Madison, the Honor Guard folded the American flag, which Sheriff Stewart gave to Priscilla Jones after the “final call” and “Taps” were heard.
