Air Force, was stationed at Robins Air Force Base in Warner Robins, Georgia, then finished his military time in Virginia.

He worked with Civil Service at Robins Air Force Base working in various positions and, after nearly twenty years, retired as a Maintenance Supervisor on the F-15 flight line. He was also a truck driver. Working on projects was one of his favorite past times, and spent many hours mechanic-ing on his 1939 Ford Model A. Earl even built his own home. Survivors include his wife of twenty-three years, Cheryl Greene Jones of Bonaire; his daughters, Teresa Bennett (Bill) of Kathleen, Lisa Hogan (Thomas) of Greenwood, SC, a son, Billy Ray Jones of O'Fallen, MO; three step-sons, Tony Kovac (Penny) of Kathleen, Terry Kovac of Perry, and Troy Kovac (Terry) of Kathleen; seven grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews.
