The database page for Grandville R Jones, Jr

10 Jul 2006

This is for my old classmate at Lane High School in Charlottesville, Virginia.

We knew him as "Tony."

I didn't know him well but what I remember best about Tony is that he made friends easily and was always smiling and laughing.

In 1966 I heard that he had been killed in Viet Nam. I never heard any more about him.

I had no idea that his name was Grandville R. Jones until I found the No Quarter Database.
