Kent D. Jones
Kent D. Jones EASTON Kent D. Jones, 63, of Easton, PA, died Monday, Feb. 4, 2019. Born Nov. 20, 1955, in Easton, he was a son of the late James G. and Anita (Rapp) Jones.

The family extends deep gratitude to those who saw beyond his circumstances and treated him with respect. "Red," as he was known, was sustained by the kindness of the community, most especially the caring staff and ministries at Safe Harbor. Surviving are his two sisters, Kathy Corbett and Keely Yetter, and his brother, Keith Jones. Services for Red will be private. The Ashton Funeral Home, Easton, is handling the arrangements.
