Reid Charles Jones, 30, of Greer, died Thursday, September 9, 2021.
Born in Greenville, SC, he was the son of Jean Aldridge Jones of Greer and Victor C. Jones of Alpharetta, GA.
Reid was a skateboarder, musician, and artist. He was a collector of hats, stickers, vintage action figures, and shoes. He always had a project going: creating custom fingerboards, jewelry, and other crafts. He had plans to visit all of the South Carolina State Parks with his dog, Ripple. But most of all, he enjoyed spending time with his friends and family.
He will be missed by his sisters, Jean Marie Holmes and Victoria White; his brothers-in-law, Alphonso Holmes and Zachary White; his nephews, Donovan Holmes and Leo White; and his niece, Marie Holmes.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Tom and Jean Aldridge and Charlie and Sue Jones.
