CHARLES RANDALL JONES
CLASS OF 1958

A memorial service for Charles Randall Jones, 72, will be held at 2 pm at Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church with
Fr. Stubbs officiating the service.  Charles was born on December 1, 1939, at 1320 Truelove here in
Gainesville and was the only son of Carl M. Jones and Rowena Johnson Jones.  He passed away during his
rehabilitation stay at Integrity Transitional Hospital in Denton after fighting a lengthy illness.
During high school, he was employed at the Tydal Refinery at 1500 Moss and worked for his father, Carl, who
was the superintendent.  He was a proud member of the last class to attend the Newsome Dougherty
Memorial High School and enjoyed attending the 50th class reunion with his daughter, Renee, in 2008.  They
also attended his 30th and 40th together as she is a graduate of GHS herself.  His mom, Rowena, was the
first female employee of the Gainesville Police Department and served as its dispatcher for many years.  It
was her career in local law enforcement that put a hamper on many of her son’s activities with his friends
growing up as he quickly learned she seemed to know everything he had done while away from home before
he could even share his side of the story.  Not that slowed down his fun but he did get better flying below the
GPD radar.  Whether it was swimming in the quarry off of Moss Street or riding bikes on the Red River to
hunt or fish, Charles enjoyed growing up in the family home at 801 N. Grand.
He worked for Lone Star Gas and then in the mid sixties, he and his best friend, Larry Brown, owned and
operated Lujax Vending Co. in Gainesville.  Larry and Charles shared a passion for flying and fun.  They flew
to Texarkana often to share a cup of coffee and flew under the Red River Bridge on more than one occasion
just for the fun of it.  When Larry developed Leukemia, they sold the business to Serv-O-Mation in Dallas.  
From there he started his career with Halliburton Services in Corpus Christi working in offshore production.  
A transfer to Duncan, Oklahoma, led to a long career with them as he worked in numerous locations
throughout the United States including work on the Alaskan Pipeline and the BART transit system in San
Francisco.  In 1968, he was transferred to Santa Fe Springs, California, to work as a service representative
for their Industrial Services Division and he personally oversaw the new Exxon Refinery being brought
online in Benecia, California, in 1971.
He met his future wife, Yvonne Graham, in 1960, and they married in 1968.  As a child survivor of polio, he
was not expected to be able to have children, so his adoption of her son, Jerry Michael, was a very special
time in their lives.  Much to their surprise several years later, Yvonne became pregnant with their daughter
Renee who was born in Fullerton while the family lived in Southern California.
In 1978, he returned to Gainesville with his family to operate Jones Pump Service after his father’s death.  
He renamed the company to M & R Pump and Equipment in honor of his children Mike and Renee.
He was instrumental in helping his son, Mike, form an auction company in 1979.  The new company operated
from his home for many years as it grew into a strong local and regional firm.  Charles spent many years
driving thousands of miles working as a professional ringman, setting up auctions, and booking sales for the
company.  He set up hundreds of independent hardware stores for auction across the south as well as the
Lowes Stores when they left the Texas market in the late 1980s.  He conducted countless business,
industrial, estate and fundraising auctions during his career.  
His passion for history and his love of Gainesville led to a meeting with Margaret Parx Hays at the Fried Pie
Restaurant where they outlined on a paper napkin how to conduct an annual auction to raise funds for the
preservation of the Morton Museum.  Over the years, the entire Jones family donated their time to run the
live auction portion of the event and dozens of original stained glass windows designed and built by Charles
were donated and sold to raise well needed funds for the Cooke County Heritage Society.  The napkin from
that meeting is framed and now hangs in his daughter’s office.
Many in the Gainesville area are familiar with Charles’ stained glass windows from his donations of certain
custom pieces to deserving causes over the years.  He owned and operated Jones Art Glass at 323 North
Commerce where stained glass classes were taught and he spent countless hours creating commissioned
pieces for his clientele.  
He enjoyed hunting with Dr. William (Bill) Powell and during the flood of 1981 he transported him all around
Gainesville so he could check on his patients.  Fishing was a great pastime as well and he spent many a
nights on Lake Texoma with brother-in-law, Paul Wiese, catching crappie and bass.  But above all else he
enjoyed playing cards – all games.  He taught his daughter to play before she could hold a hand so he
constructed a stand she could use it to hold her cards until she got older.  He organized a weekly poker game
and enjoyed it for many years at her office until health curtailed his driving at night.
In the 1990’s, Charles began to focus his time and expertise in his daughter’s auction company, National
Property Solutions, where her business concentration was in the industrial commercial arena.  His work
within her firm took him across the United States again and into some of the largest manufacturing facilities
In the 1990’s, Charles began to focus his time and expertise in his daughter’s auction company, National in
the world.  He was one of the first civilians to see a Stealth fighter in person at the Lockheed Martin facility
in Marietta, Georgia, prior to one of her auctions at the same facility.  From AT&T to Xerox, Charles always
put his clients first and success always followed.  He supervised over two billion dollars in sales during his
tenure with NPS and after health issues prevented him from traveling he remained an active consultant and
confidant to his daughter until his passing.
In addition to supporting both of his children in their entry into the auction industry, Charles mentored
dozens of auctioneers and their families across the United States on business development, operations, and
client services.  He wanted to see everyone succeed and enjoy what he loved so much – the auction
business.  
In addition to graduating from Gainesville High School, he attended Cooke County College, North Texas State
University, IBM Sales School, Missouri Auction School, First American Certified Appraiser Guild, and held
countless certifications in safety, chemistry, auction and appraisal education.
He was preceded in death by his parents Carl M. and Rowena Jones, sister June Wiese and her husband Paul,
sisters Lucy Jones and Margaret Jones, brothers James McClendon and John Jones and niece Mary Ann
Schneider.
Charles is survived by his wife of forty-three years, Yvonne, their daughter, Renee Yvonne Jones, son Mike
and daughter-in-law Lori Jones, one granddaughter McKenzie Kay Jones, niece Paula Wiese Strait and her
husband, Robert.
The family will receive guests after the service in the home of Renee Jones at 15 Quail Run for food and
fellowship.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be mailed to the family to assist with expenses at:  PO Box 801, Gainesville,
