David Jones, Husband of Arlene Sheridan Jone Passes Away

David Jones and Arlene Sheridan
Link to obituary - Obituary in The Ledger
In Arlene's own words:
Christmas Eve morning I found my precious hubby had gone on into eternity. Although he had SEVERE COPD and was on oxygen 24/7, had been in and out of the hospital with pneumonia and heart problems all of 2012, I still wasn't prepared to say goodbye to my companion of nearly 51 years. We met in 1961 after he got out of the Army. We were engaged in August and married in Jan. 1962. The rest is history including a son and a daughter and 7 grandchildren. (wife: Arlene Sheridan Jones).
David accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior the year we began dating. Although he knew about Jesus it was that year that he made it personal for him.  Throughout the years we both grew as Christians and I loved sharing my faith with my husband and then our 2 children and finally our grandchildren. Kevin Jones(Aimee) and Karen (Jones) Kochenburger are our children. Karen's two children are Michael Kochenburger (Hannah) and Kristin Kochenburger. Kevin's are Brooke Jones, David R. Jones, Stephanie Jones Whipple (Kris) and Hanna and David Larracus.  He is survived also by his younger sister, Sherri Jones Morgan of Bartow, FL. (My granddaughter Brooke is in charge of writing the official obituary for the Ledger but I have not yet read the final yet but wanted to write a brief note of information for my former classmates of the 1959 LHS Class.  David was in the Navy Reserves for a brief time while in high school at LHS but later joined the US Army and became a member of the 82nd Airborne Division stationed at Fort Bragg, NC. He was a communnication specialist as well while serving our country in peacetime.
Dave always was a staunch conservative in his political persuasion and supported our Constitutional rights. He enjoyed a bit of bantor back and forth on such topics as well as a love for history, especially military history.
Dave was became a member of Lakeland's First Baptist Church when he was saved and baptised, later he and his wife Arlene Sheridan Jones, became active at Carpenter's Home Church until they moved upon retirement, to upstate South Carolina mountains. At that time they joined Dacusville Church of God which was later known as LifeChurch of Dacusville, a suburb of Easley, SC.
Before his health took its toll on his active lifestyle, Dave as he preferred to be called, was well known as a supporter of the Florida GATORS with all kinds of Gator collectibles. You would not need to be around him long before you found that out. He had become an avid golfer, belonging to a golf group in Berea, SC, a suburb of Greenville. His younger years, he and Arlene along with the 2 children, loved fishing and using his golf boat to do just that on summer vacations and holidays. He loved being a native Floridian as his parents too were from Florida.
I have to stop writing when it gets to me too much. I would cherish any prayer for me to endure this part of life with strength from the joy of the Lord.

LHS Class of 1959 Christmas Party

On December 15, 2012, the Lakeland High School Class of 1959 held its 2012 Christmas party at the beautiful lakeside home of Mary Futch.  Mary's home is on the private lake, Lake Lester.  We had a total of 67 attendees, with 11 from other classes participating.  Mary Futch's granddaughter recruited her boyfriend and another friend and acted as valets to organize the parking of approximately 40 vehicles.  It was first class.

The food was plentiful and delicious.

In lieu of still photographs, I set up a camcorder and made a 10 minute video.  Many attendees agreed to be video taped, while a few declined to go on camera.  That video is on YouTube, and here is the link - YouTube Video.  Enjoy the video.  Incidentally, that is Corky Dean entering the out house.

Bobby Surgeon Passes Away

I have learned from Dave Bayhan that Bobby Surgeon died from a heart attack.  In addition he was suffering from metastatic squamous cell carcinoma, as was chronicled in our class blog in the year 2009 - Article in Class Blog, 2009

Bobby expressed a desire to be cremated and buried at sea.  Dave reports that Bobby’s wishes will be carried out, and he will be buried at sea off of Anna Maria Island.  No memorial service is planned, and to Dave’s knowledge, there will be no obituary in The Ledger.

Dave told me something that I had forgotten or never knew.  This is that Bobby had a career in professional water skiing.  I searched the Internet, and I found three links, all of which deal with the very early years.  I am including below three links, all of which navigate to very old newspaper articles.

Paul Schiff Shares Photos of the Schiff and Raymond Families

Paul Schiff offers these photos and narrative.  Beatty is nearest the forefront in the first photo; Irene is in back of her.  Beatty and Paul pose for the second photo.  In the third photo, Maurice is driving the boat.  Below, I quote Paul:

"Last Monday (8/6), my wife, Irene, and I spent the afternoon with Beatty and Maurice Raymond. We see them when they come up to their summer home in Old Saybrook, Connecticut, which is only about a half hour or so from our house. This year we went for a leisurely cruise a little way up the Connecticut River, moored the boat in a cove, swam and had good conversation. I thought that I would share a few photos with you... perhaps to be posted on the LHS blog."

Jerry Steele is out of Hospital

Hi Everyone,

After ten days in the hospital, WE ARE HOME!!!!!!!!! Both of us are EXHAUSTED but so happy to be here. Now, we just need to get some much needed rest (you never rest in a hospital!) Jerry is feeling pretty well -- just very, very tired; and, coughing and sneezing are quite painful. For the first time ever, he is on several meds but those will be removed, as he heals.

We want to, again, thank you for your hospital visits, phone calls, cards, emails, texts and, most certainly, your prayers!!!!

With love,

Charlyne Steele Again Updates Us on Jerry's Heart Condition

Dear Ones,

On Tuesday, Jerry's symptoms returned (plus a couple more!), so we rushed to our local hospital's ER. Our cardiologist determined it was best for Jerry to come by ambulance, right then, to Emory Midtown Atlanta. We've been here, since. Tomorrow morning, Jerry's surgery will be performed about 8:00 AM. The surgeon will remove the aneurysm, replace the aortic valve and repair the aorta root. If all goes well, he is expected to be in Emory for 5-7 days, before being released. Jerry has continued to have no pain (thank you, Lord!) and is very optimistic about his surgery and recovery.

We greatly appreciate all the many phone calls, emails. texts, cards and offers of assistance. You are the BEST!!!!! I will keep you updated.

Our love,

Charlyne (and Jerry!)

Charlyne Steele Updates Jerry's Condition

Dear Friends,

Yesterday, we spent the day at Emory Hospital, Midtown Atlanta, with surgeons, doctors, nurses, techs, etc. We are to "report" to the hospital on Friday, May 18th, at 5:30 AM for surgery, as the surgeon is not available until that date. Surgery will consist of removing the aneurysm and replacing the aortic valve. Jerry did his pre-op, except for one blood test (which must be done nearer the date of surgery), while we were there. Should he have any of the symptoms, which he experienced previously, he is to, immediately, get to our local E.R. and they would air-lift him down to Emory and one of our surgeon's partners would do an emergency surgery. Jerry is to do NOTHING until this is repaired on the 18th. His spirits are positive but he is not one to do nothing and that is a big problem for him!

We both appreciate all the phone calls, cards, emails and, most especially, prayers. I will keep you up-dated, as we progress through this process. Please, continue your prayers for Jerry and his medical team.

Charlyne Steele Updates Jerry's Condition

Hi our dear friends,

WE ARE HOME!!!!! Three days in the CDU was about three days too long for both of us! We will go back Monday for a CT of Jerry's heart. Then, Thursday, we have an appointment with the surgeon in Atlanta for a consultation and we'll schedule surgery, at that time. This surgeon did my brother's triple by-pass a couple years ago and is very good. Surgery will be performed at Emory-Crawford Long Hospital, downtown Atlanta.

The heart cath confirmed the findings of the echocardiogram; the aortic valve is not working and there is an aneurysm there. Our cardiologist said the surgery didn't have to be performed today or tomorrow but it must be done soon. Jerry is quite perturbed that he has been so cautious to exercise, eat properly and take good care of his body - and now this! The doctors keep reminding him, had he not done that, "things" could be much worse!

We appreciate all the calls, emails, texts and, most especially, prayers! We have always known we have wonderful friends and you are proving it, once again! Please, continue to keep Jerry in your prayers and I will update, when surgery is scheduled.

With love,

Jerry Steele Has Congenital Defect in Aortic Valve

Charlyne Steele reports that two very recent trips to the emergency room for dizziness and a heavy feeling in the chest have revealed that Jerry has a congenital defect in his aortic valve.  Rather than having a tricuspid, he has more on the order of a bicuspid.  The doctors in Jasper, Georgia are saying that he needs a valve replacement surgery.  The urgency of the situation is graded on a 1 to 4 scale, with 4 being the most urgent.  The doctors are currently rating Jerry's condition as a 3.5.  After a heart catheterization in Jasper on April 26, 2012, Jerry and Charlyne will travel to Atlanta for an expert second opinion.  Charlyne asks your prayers for Jerry.

An Update From Arlene Sheridan Jones

About lost David this past month but he is kicking again! Dave had some more bouts of check pain so was put in the St. Francis Hospital, in Greenville, SC on Mar. 22 for a heart Cath. They had to do a splint to open up the RCA which was 95% blocked. I may have told you that? After coming home he seemed to go downhill till we were trying to wait on an appointment he had when I had to end up calling EMS. He can be a bit stubborn as can be said of so many men, about these health issues. We live 35 miles from the GV hosp so like to use EMS so he can be stabilized on the way in or even in the driveway! This is why we are anxious to sell this piece of heaven we have enjoyed for so long, to return to the practical old familiar, comfy home grounds. We have not had an offer so we reduced the price twice now. We are covering up the in ground pool because it is way too much trouble with the leaves, and was not feasible to cover a pool up here as I had planned. We will have a wonderful new garden area.
