November 10, 1942 ~ November 17, 2023

Born in: Elizabeth, Pennsylvania
Resided in: Ormond Beach, Florida

Thomas Roland Jones, 81, of Ormond Beach, Florida (formerly of Vienna, VA), died peacefully at home Friday, Nov. 17, surrounded by loved ones. He fought prolonged illnesses for years before they became untreatable.

Born Nov. 10, 1942, in Elizabeth, Pa., he was the son of the late James and Viola Balogh Jones.

Mr. Jones was the devoted husband of 32 years to Elvita Carrasco Jones. He was the proud father of Kellie (Richard) Owens, Eric (Karen) Jones and Jeffrey Brown, and the proudest grandfather of Evan (Candy) Owens, Sidney Owens, Caroline Owens, and Elijah Brown. He was thrilled to welcome to the family 5 great grandchildren.

Also left to cherish his memory are three siblings, Jim Jones, Rich (Linda) Jones and Penny (Jeff) Jones; his dear niece Aja (Jonathan) Jones; and many other beloved nieces, nephews, brothers and sisters in law, extended family and friends.

Tom Jones built a successful business in Virginia based on values he learned in small-town Pennsylvania – a brand of customer service honed at an Isaly’s deli chain and carried to his heating and cooling company Jones-Rogers, Inc.

Known to many in his industry as Mr. Jones, he got his start in the HVAC industry in 1962 outside of Washington, D.C. with little more than cheese sandwiches and the grit of his native Pittsburgh to sustain him. With tireless energy and steadfast determination, he established a reliable brand and co-founded Jones-Rogers in 1970. Tom ultimately bought his business partner’s share of stock and led the company for 42 years, earning the highest industry marks with numerous business awards, including the Carrier Distinguished Dealer Award in 1996, and as a Lennox Premier Dealer and a Lennox Centurion Dealer.

Many times, the company name appeared as a sponsor for youth sports and community service, as Tom aimed to serve customers everywhere they lived and worked. In addition, he served the community for several years as a softball coach in the Vienna Ponytail Softball League.

At home, he was known as a dear husband, a beloved dad and loving Pap Pap. His mountain home in Somerset County, Pa., was the setting for numerous holiday gatherings, outdoor sports, late-night pool games and laughter that never seemed to end. He and his wife filled their passports with world adventures before and after they settled in Florida filling their days with good friends, golf and tending their citrus orchard. His kitchen table in every home was a place where guests were regaled with stories and served great food, including his signature chili, pancakes and omelets. His collection of sports, movies and music memorabilia included a healthy mix of Pittsburgh and Washington, D.C. teams, Betty Boop, and anything Harley-Davidson adorned his walls.

  7. Dear Elvita, I will always remember Tom as a kind and thoughtful man. His legacy is well written and will remain in memory for so many. Please know I am thinking of you and your family as you mourn the loss of your dear husband. ❤️& 🙏🏻

  8. To my dear friend Tom. You lived the life you always wanted and remained the most genuine, giving, empathetic, fun loving man I have known. You were always profoundly thankful for life and all the experiences you and Elvita shared. Even more so at the end. You brought so much joy in to our world. I wish I could be there tomorrow but am still glad we had those last moments where I could say goodbye to a true friend. My love goes out to all of your family but I’m pretty sure you and Hidis are there in heaven (as well as Elvita’s “Mama”) paving the way. Pretty sure you are back on that cycle, free from pain with a smile on your face. Not a smile because you are thinking about the sadness the people left behind you are feeling but more of a celebration of life to come. Hugs and kisses go out to the whole family. Much love, Pat

    My prayers are with you. I am so sorry that I just found out about this from my mother. Mr. Jones was a great man and taught me the meaning and value of a hard days work. He shaped me into the person I am today and I will always be grateful for all of the life lessons that he instilled in me. Prayers for the entire family you will be on my mind and in my prayers.
