Johnny or Jr as he was often called, was the oldest of twelve children. He left school to work and help support his family. He worked at Floyds Meadowbrook Texaco for many years before he and his wife Linda bought the service station and the legacy began with the Jones Texaco. It then became Jones Exxon, a full service gas station. One of the few service stations that checked your oil and tires while you filled your tank. They were known for their full service car wash with loyal customers for many years.
