In 1972, Philip embarked on another remarkable journey when he married the love of his life, Jane Jones. Together, they built a beautiful family filled with love and cherished memories. As a devoted husband and father, Philip found joy in spending time with his family, relishing every moment shared together.

With an unwavering spirit and determination, Philip pursued academic excellence by obtaining his Bachelor’s from Tulane University and an MBA from Oklahoma City University. He was also a founding member of the Peachtree City Running Club, showcasing his commitment to staying active and engaged within his community.

Philip’s other passion in life was sailing. His love for sailing was more than just a hobby; it was a reflection of his fearless approach to life — taking on each wave as it came, rising above storms, and finding peace in the rhythm of the ocean.

Philip is survived by his children, Adrienne Jones and Chris Jones, as well as his brother Mark and his wife, Carrie Jones. He is preceded in death by his beloved wife Jane Jones and his parents Paul and Margaret Jones.

Philip’s legacy will live on through the lives he touched and the memories he created. His kindness, strength, and unwavering commitment to his loved ones serve as a beacon of inspiration for all who knew him. May his spirit soar high like the planes he once navigated with skill and grace.
