Bob Jones

Apr 17, 2009

Broadway, VA – Two years ago, 78-year old Bob Jones and his wife moved to Broadway, Virginia, to be closer to family.

Mr. Jones joined the Air Force at 17 and was in federal service for the next 36 years.

He then spent twelve years as a regional manager of his church's extensive welfare system before Parkinson's disease forced his retirement.

At the suggestion of Jim Herrick, of the JMU biology department, Martha Woodroof recently sat down with Bob Jones to talk about other people, Parkinson's and life.
