Christopher T. Jones Sr., 79, of Exeter Township, departed us on Sunday, February 13, 2022, in Reading Hospital. He was the husband of Mae (Hepler) Jones, with whom he celebrated 56 years of marriage. Born in Reading, PA, he was the son of the late Raymond and June (Thompson) Jones. Chris was a 1960 graduate of Exeter High School, and went on to further his education at Kutztown University, where he earned his Bachelor's degree with a double major in education and geography. He was a science teacher at Exeter Schools for 35 years. He was also an instructor trainer educator for the American Red Cross for over 40 years and Hunter Safety Instructor for Pennsylvania Game Commission for over 10 years. Chris was a member of High Point Baptist Chapel, where he was a Sunday School Teacher for over 20 years. Beyond Chris's life as an extraordinary teacher, a humble servant, and an inquisitive student he was most importantly a professed follower of Jesus Christ his Savior. He never stopped seeking to know God more fully. Now he is fully experiencing the glory of the Lord.
