Edward “Lee” Jones, 59 of Martinsburg, passed away on November 30, 2019, surrounded by family and the caring staff at Hospice of the Panhandle. Born on February 17, 1960, in Martinsburg, he is preceded in death by his parents, John Edward and Jule Delia Jones; and younger brother, Roger Lowell Jones. Lee was a compassionate soul and hard-worker, working as long as he’s grown a mustache at the ripe age of early teen hood. He served as the Food Service Supervisor at the Martinsburg VA Medical Center for over 17 years. Previously he was lovingly known as “Mr. Jones,” the manager of McDonalds and Denny’s Restaurants. Lee was a man of many talents and interests, including casually picking the guitar and several other instruments he learned to play by ear, listening to classic rock, cooking, collecting quirky antiques, fishing, trying his luck at Atlantic City Resorts and cruising around in his truck. He earned his Black Belt in 1992 and was an instructor at Smith's Karate. He was a steadfast Redskins fan through thick and thin. Loved ones knew him as hilarious, loving, good-hearted, while friends knew him as nurturing, reliable, and honest. He had the kindest eyes and a heart of gold. His loving memory is survived by daughter, Samantha Lee Jones and significant other, Derek Shives of Needmore, Pennsylvania; sisters: Darlene Miller, Shirley Funk, and Linda Davis of Berkeley County; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. He will be greatly missed by countless people. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Lee’s favorite organization, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Friends will be received at Rosedale Funeral Home on Friday from 11am until the time of the funeral service at noon. Private interment will be in Rosedale Cemetery.

Lee was a steadfast and loyal supervisor of mine. He was a kind hearted man with a lot of patience and a joy of life who didn't let anything get too far to heart. The VA lost a great employee. My deepest condolences to his daughter Sam whom I had the pleasure to meet. I wish only that I had his patience and resilience. Lee you will be sorely missed by all as you touched so many people.

Lee Jones was an awesome guy. I recall enjoying talking with him just about life and the workday; how he didn’t like the way this world is going. One day not too long after I bought my 1st guitar I bought it in when he was working, he showed me some of the things he knew about guitar. I’ve got a lot to learn about it. Lee really cared about you. He showed concern over my car and gave me advice about it. And he was so courageous-seeing him in hospice he was glad to see you and able to enjoy being with whoever was around him, although you could tell he was exhausted. He fought the good fight. He was my friend too and I miss him an awful lot. He was a fantastic coworker.

I've worked with Lee for ~17 years at the VA. He was always loyal and thoughtful. When the "what would Jesus do" phrase was popular, sometimes we would ask, "what would Lee do?" Then he became our Snowy Weather Superman taking the lead for our overnight team of staff to ensure breakfast was served correctly and on time to our ~450 Veterans. Recently I've thought of him as our "man of steel" as he would come to work regardless of his pain. His memory is alive as our staff reflect on his impact here, and will remain alive as we continue with the work that Lee devoted his career to.

I work at the VA hospital, where I met Lee 4 years ago. Almost every day we took our breaks at the same time, through those breaks I got to know Lee. I enjoyed his calm demeanor and his sense of humor. He had great stories, that he was always happy to share! I remember thinking the first time I met him, that, he has the kindest eyes Ive ever seen. I am privileged to know Lee and honored to call him a friend!
